Our Heritage

by This is Carrie on February 3, 2011

It was Heritage Pride Day at school.

Princess represented her Dutch heritage (on my mom’s side) by wearing a traditional hat and “wooden” shoes all made from paper.  My freckle-faced, red-headed Pumpkin demanded to represent her Mexican heritage (on my dad’s side) with a traditional fiesta dress in the colors of the Mexican flag which, at a school that is labeled as 80% Hispanic, awarded her a few funny looks and also a sense of belonging.

THe paper hat and shoes are very impressive. Did you use a book or think it up yourself. Gorgeous!

Virginia – I totally didn’t come up with them. If you click on the links in the original post, it will take you to the instructions for the paper hat and shoes. I happened upon them when I googled “dutch costume” and I was so excited, since I didn’t have much time to pull it all together.
