Today we have invited all of our friends to a Hunger Hero play date at the park in support of No Kid Hungry’s Go Orange days. All of the kids are bringing food donations for our local food bank–and turning into Hunger Heroes! I made bright orange capes for all of our Hunger Heroes to wear out of plastic tablecloths from the Dollar store.
They were super easy to make!
You can get 8 capes out of 1 108 inch table cloth. I began by unfolding the tablecloth and using the folds to cut the tablecloth in half, and then into fourths, and finally into eighths. You end up with a 27 inch cape.
Then I folded the top corners in to make a cape shape. Next I used scissors to poke a hole where each shoulder would be and tied a piece of yarn through each of the holes to tie the cape on.
And voila–a Hunger Hero! I can’t wait to give these out at the play date this afternoon!
I am proud and excited to join Moms Fighting Hunger in supporting No Kid Hungry’s Go Orange for hunger days! The statistics on childhood hunger in America are shocking. 1 in 5 kids in America are affected by hunger, that’s over 16 million kids. And we’re not the only country facing this problem.
