The kids had a “Crazy Hair Day” on Friday, for the last day of term. This was the event we had mixed up the date for, when we sent Rory to school with a Mohawk last month. He didn’t really have enough hair to do anything but colour it this time.
The kids chose a colour of hair spray that resembles a tennis ball, and they were pretty happy with the results. The littlest one ended up looking positively impish (she doesn’t go to school, but she is not one to miss out on any fun that might be happening).
The Crazy Hair Day was a fundraiser for charity, part of the “Worlds Greatest Shave” an initiative of The Leukaemia Foundation. 26 boys (unsurprisingly they were all boys) had their parents permission to have their heads shaved, (to a number 2) during the end of term assembly. The kids that took part in wearing crazy hair donated a gold coin ( our $1 and $2 here in Australia are small gold coins rather than “paper” money) towards Cystic Fibrosis Victoria.
It was a fun way to end the term – the kids are now home for two weeks, so I am not sure how productive I am going to be on the creative front. I have a deadline I am working on, Which I will tell you about another day.
