A different kind of crafting tonight

Cale is in a play in school next week and one of his friends has to be a knight so he, remembering a knight helmet pattern from a book he has at home, volunteered that he (and by he, he meant me) would make a knight helmet for his friend for the play. If I had more time, I'd paint the whole thing silver or something - I was hoping by some stroke of luck that I had silver spray paint on hand, but I don't...and I'm not sure he wants a red knight helmet. So, the grey cardboard is going to have to do.

This is the inside - a collage of some of our favourite sweet cereals LOL.

I'm feeling pretty good about my thrifty-mom-skills right now :)
