Cow Appreciation Day July 14th at Chick-fil-a - DIY Cow Outfit

In anticipation for Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a, my daughter and I have been busy putting together a quick, easy, and fun shirt.

For those of you who don't know, if you you visit your local restaurant on July 14, you can get some free food!  Just dress up in your best cow attire!

Fully dressed as a cow means an effort to be dressed like a cow from head to toe. Partial cow attire means just a cow accessory such as a cow-printed hat, vest, or purse. People dressed in partial attire will be awarded an entree vs a full meal. So put your A game on so you score a whole meal!

So for my little Maddie she (well I) decided we would work on our own little costume and dress her up as a little cow. A mini cow onesie will also be made for baby.

I rounded up our materials (below). Basically just had to run out and purchase some black felt and glue, as we already had everything else at home.

First we cut out a bunch of odd shapes to make our cow spots and placed them on the shirt before gluing so we could see how many spots we needed. We placed them in no particular pattern, just where ever Maddie decided they would land.

Next we glued them in place using some felt glue.

We let the shirt dry for about an hour before handling our finished product. I think she did a pretty good job. We will pair this with some black leggings and use the thick black pipe cleaner as her ears. With the blank white piece of paper, string, marker, and red pencil we will be making a sign for her to place around her neck that says their tag line "Eat Mor Chiken". You can see the end result on Tuesday when she heads to Chick-fil-a!  Follow Maddie on Instagram @MaddieInTheCity or me @OlgaDavis30
