We had the idea that Declan could be the Milky Way, Andromeda or the Sombrero Galaxy for Halloween. I bought glittery fabric paint, a black shirt and a bunch of space stencils to start the process, but he quickly decided that he wanted to take over and commandeered the paintbrush. I think it actually turned out better than anything I could have made. It certainly looks more like actual space than stencils would. He even has his own sense of exactly when to stop.
I suggested that it looked somewhat nebula-like, but he said no, it’s a whole bunch of galaxies and black holes.
Small thinking, mommy. Why be a galaxy when you can be the whole universe for Halloween?
