What you will need:
Scissors or Exacto Knife
Painter’s Tape (3/4″ – 1 1/2″ thick)
Yellow Hoodie or Raincoat (we had an old raincoat)
Kid’s Lunch Bag/Messenger Bag
Creature Power Discs 2 copies each (via the generosity of Mel and Chris Eigenheer)
Leaptop or similar device w a keyboard (optional)
How to Make the Costume:
Aviva Hoodie: Cut out logo and use painter’s tape to attach it to the hoodie. Cut about 3/4″ strips to go around. Make the stripes on the sleeves using the painter’s tape. Write out Aviva, with strips of painter’s tape. While the logo and name are not part of Aviva’s hoodie, it makes the character a little more recognizable!
Creature Power discs: Cut into circles and stick two together with glue stick, so the same creature shows on both faces. Trim any white edges that show.
Laptop bag: Use painter’s tape to stick the Kratt Brothers’ logo. Cover the entire surface of your bag with painter’s tape. Use exacto knife to trim away excess tape, if your lunch/ messenger bag has rounded corners (like mine)
L(e)aptop/computer: Use painter’s tape to stick the Wild Kratts logo. Cover the entire surface with painter’s tape. Use exacto knife to trim away excess tape, if your l(e)aptop has rounded corners (like mine)
Viola! Your girl is all set to program creature power discs for the Kratt brothers (in well under 3 hours), and let creatures “live free and in the wild!”
