Cindy Lou Who and Crayola Markers

I don't know about everyone else, but every year, the week before Christmas is spirit week at my kids' school. Today is Crazy Hair or Crazy Hat Day. This is also the first year that Makenzie has fallen in love with Cindy-Lou Who from the Grinch. So of course for crazy hair day she asked for Cindy-Lou hair. This was actually relatively easy to accomplish. We parted out a circle-ish section of hair on top of her had and stuck a plastic cup on her head. We then pulled the hair from the circle up and around the cup forming the cone shape. We added a bow on top and curled her hair hanging down. We then took the remaining hair and did two braids pulling them up and bobbing pinning them into place. We then curled the ends of the braids down. It took about 20 mins total because I was trying to find a cup that we couldn't see through her thin hair.

For Aidan, we used a green crayola marker and colored the front of his hair, then gelled it up into place. Super easy and took less than 5 minutes.
