One thing we found fascinating when first arriving in Florida from the mid-west (beside the wonderful weather) are holiday activities. The area where we live hosts several holiday parades where schools, community organizations, and businesses participate.
The theme of the parade this year is: Bright Lights, Holiday Delights
We’re members of Adventure Maidens, a group for mothers and daughters learning life skills both indoor and outdoor. To promote our group, we’re participating in the parade. Moms will be decked out as bakers while the girls will be real life gingerbread girls. Holiday Delights of gingerbread are a staple in our household.
Gingerbread girls come to life
with brown t-shirts, felt, rolls of tulle, elastic and silver leggings.
Buttons were created by cutting felt into circles
White fabric paint added the finishing touches to the neck and sleeves.
