How to Make Costumes for School Plays and Pageants

Plays and pageants offer many valuable contributions to the total educational experience of children and, in addition, provide an excellent opportunity for establishing a closer relationship between the child, the teacher, the home, the school, and the community itself. Thus, although children should have many informal experiences in play-acting without elaborate costumes or properties, they need also the experiences that come only from finished performances prepared for special occasions and larger audiences.

It is the purpose of this book to assist teachers in realizing fully the educational values of such productions. The wide variety of costumes presented are attractive and authentic, yet they are simplified in design so that the children can participate in making them. Actually, planning, dyeing and sewing costumes holds as much importance, educationally, as play-acting itself, and the children should be given only sufficient adult help to finish the tasks in a reasonable length of time. For this, the wise and skillful teacher will enlist the aid of parents, knowing that such cooperation strengthens the important relationship between home and school.

True stories all of them. But I think I have learned the most about how to facilitate a show on a tight budget, especially in the area that often sucks up the most money: costumes. I have become somewhat of a wizard in this arena. Like the cool Harry Potter kind. Think Hermione shocking everyone by pulling everything they need out of that ridiculously tiny bag. When I worked at a summer theater camp where we were costuming five shows a summer on an extremely tight budget, the staff at the local thrift shop knew me by name.

From designing to fitting

You are making costumes for the school play. Each costume needs a piece of ribbon that is yard long. How many yards of ribbon are needed for the costumes? I doubt if there are that many students in the school. You will need over miles of ribbon. A semi-truck will be over early next week to deliver that. I searched this one up to, lemme think, think through math, right?
