Mommy Duties: The UN Day Celebration

October is indeed the month for costumes. Aside from Halloween, Henry also needed a costume for his school's United Nations Day celebration.

Classes in the casa level were divided to represent each of the 7 continents of the world. Henry's class got Asia and he was assigned to represent China.

Here's the costume that he needed. Aside from this he was also required to have a sash with the name of the country written on it. Parents were also given the freedom to modify the costume.


Good thing I found  My China Dolls easily online. They sell imported cheongsams for kids directly from China. I chose this emperor outfit with red vest. I also purchased the head dress from them. The owner was very easy to talk to and I even picked up the costume at her house.(If you want to order from My China Dolls then you better hurry because she mentioned that she will stop importing them to concentrate on her kids and day job. So stocks are very limited now.)


I DIY'ed his sash by creating a stencil with my Silhouette Cameo since my penmanship is really bad. 


And, here is my little Chinese emperor all dressed up with his costume and sash.


The program started with a parade with each class coming out one by one and being introduced on stage.


After which, each class performed a song and dance number. Here's Henry with his classmates after their performance.

The program finished with the whole casa level singing "I want to teach the world to sing". I was especially proud of Henry during this portion. See when I went closer to the stage to take a video, it was so obvious in his face that he was feeling very uncomfortable. But, he was still singing and doing the actions to the song. When they finished, he stood up and ran up to me to tell me that he needed to pee. No wonder he had that face, he was fighting his urge while at the same time he was trying to give a good performance. Such a trooper. At this age, he already knows that the show must go on no matter what.

Closing Song with the whole casa level

Here are more pictures from today's event.

By the way, I have to commend everyone who made this production possible. The backdrops were really amazing and all the kids were so cute in their costumes. 

So now that we're done with this, it's now time to work on that Joker costume. 

Thanks for visiting today,
Ditas

  10. My little ones just had a simple parade of flags to celebrate UN Day in school. What we're preparing for now is their "Return to Neverland" Halloween party where the teacher specifically noted that we are to avoid buying costumes and instead use our creativity and resourcefulness to create them. So, good luck to us moms on that. :D
