wild krattness!

i knew i had to do something when i found myself saying to nate "nate, stop running around like a cheetah during school time. you are not a cheetah!"

then nate came to me and asked me to email the wild kratts and ask them if he could have a creature power suit

nate is obsessed. obsessed with the pbs show wild kratts. which i don't mind. the show is SO educational!  i am surprised by how much i've learned about animals, wild life, habitats etc...  nate can often be found sharing with me facts about animals or giving me a multiple choice question about animals

so, after i explained to nate that  creature power suits are not to be sold. i thought why not make one? i asked nate if he would like one, he freaked out thinking he was going to get a real suit that would turn him into an animal... then i had the sad job of explaining to him that if i make him one it will not actually turn him into the animal of his choice. he was devastated. like full tears upset!  i love how kids think so literal!

so today, i began the job. i do NOT sew. so i created a non sew creature power suit!

i found an old shirt too small for nate and cut it up
i used my cricut for template, marked the circles and cut them out
then i bought a 4.00 t-shirt at walmart, cut the sleeves off
and used this AMAZING product that does the sewing for you...but with an iron...think like a patch works
i got a pair of gloves and did the same
voila. creature power suit!
then i had chris use his computerness and create some animals, printed them in color on card stock, cut them out and laminated them.  i put velcro in the middle of the circle on the shirt and on the power disks
The link for a free 3-page pdf is at the bottom of this blog post
what? you thought i'd post with out a pic of ellie?
hee
she watched and napped during the process
voila! super creature power!
i was going to make a bag for the power disks but found a camera bag at the $ store and used it instead
i have one super happy wild kratt kid today!
and they did a little piano playing while i worked away!
and that sums us up!

For anybody that would like to use the source images, my wonderful, amazing, incredible good looking and just over the top phenomenal husband volunteered to upload them for me!!! Isn't he the best?

Do you happen to have a template for just the disc part so that I can add my own silhouette animals. I have been looking everywhere and it's making me crazy. I am creating a Wild Kratts Adventure class for our homeschooling co-op and would love to add some different animals. Thanks so much!

mel said...

Thank you for the Creature Power Discs! The PDF's scale very well. I printed them on 11x14 pages and the discs come out perfectly sized for my son's costume. Just took the pages over to local copy shop and laminated them. AWESOME. Thank you for your hard work creating this terrific discs. Much appreciated and my son is extremely excited.

Anjana Richards said...

Thank you soo soo much for your generosity and creativity!!! You and your husband are wonderful! You've made a little boy really happy! We used the jpg's that you have on your site, right clicked and copied then pasted into powerpoint. Then resized the image to 1.5" to match the PBSkids version of the creature power disc that comes with the 'official' suit. THANK YOU!!!!

Sarah said...

I just wanted to thank you and your husband for these amazing disk templates! The kids Nana made them great costumes but we needed more disks. They are SO excited to start using these.

This was so nice of you, my little guys will love them. Thank you very much.

Laurel said...

Thank you sooooo much! My boys love these. It was a great art project cutting them out together and gluing them to cardboard, and then hours of play afterwards. They are being Wild Kratts for Halloween, so these were just what I needed.

Sarah said...

Thank you so much for sharing these great discs! The pictures include all the animals we wanted for our party games and the blank discs will let me make a "Happy Birthday" banner really easily. Your hard work will make lots of 4 & 5 year olds really happy in a few weeks!

This is so great! I'm making my three kids (ages 7, 5, 3) creature power suits for Christmas (last minute, obviously, haha), and this idea is amazing, and the creature power discs are so great! My kids are going to be thrilled! What did you use to get the circles onto the "vest"? I'd rather not sew (I'm extremely not creative), but I have no idea what product you're talking about and I want to know lol. Thanks!

mel said...

it was a while back that I bought the no sew adhesive so I cant remember the product name! I found it in the sewing aisle at walmart, it has a glue adhesive on both sides that you use a hot iron to melt it on. it was under 5.00 and had "no sew" on the label. since then, ive seen spray on glue adhesive that you can use on fabric (and a bunch of other surfaces) at micheals for about 10.00 a can and I scored a can (elmers brand) at our local dollar store (dollarama). I know fabric stores also carry the no sew, glue tape! I hope this helps and no prob! my son out grew wild kratts so this brings back the memories :) fyi....the kratt brothers have a show called "be the creature", my 7 yr old LOVES it, me too, check it out~

Anonymous said...

Awesome, thanks so much! I'm headed to the craft store right now (foreign land for me, hahaha)! I will check out that show, we love the Kratt brothers!

Trista said...

Wow, thank your husband from the bottom of my 7-year-old's heart for all of these creature power discs. He is going to be in hog heaven Christmas morning. His dad and I have been up late for days getting his suit finished up; these will make it that much better.

mel said...

Your and your husband are life savers and I wish nothing but the best for you both. The fact that this show is popular but doesn't have many decor products is extremely frustrating when trying to pull of a great party. You guys helped save my soon to be 5 year old bday party!! Thanks so much for sharing this and for free!!!

Thank you so much for sharing such great work of yours.
I was planning making wild kratts costume by myself, but the power discs were the most headaching issue for me.
Thanks to you, I can simply print them out and allow my kids to have various creature powers.
