FSO: The Colour Red

My school had a book sale to raise funds and inspire students to read. I did my bit to encourage my kids. I asked them if they wanted a Red Riding Hood's hood. I surprised them with a home made hood. They all wore it and I took photos. Sorry I couldn't show you all my Red Riding Hoods. This one, I had to put blinds on.

Love book's sale. And to encourage kids to read books is definitely a good thing to do. Many kids and teens don't read books anymore because of too many games online and watching tv all the time. Great shot Ann.

Little Red Riding Hood is my daughter's favourite bedtime story and make-belief play. I used a blanket for the hood.

wow you are creative crafter, i like the red hood. all sale word written in red indeed!

Oh, do they not allow you to take pictures of the students because of security concerns? Phil teaches chess at en elementary school, and they allow no pictures of the students, I could not take one for my blog. And yet they allow us to bring them any food or candy we want to! I think that is more dangerous than pictures, what with all the allergies kids have now. So the rules just don't make sense to me.

Well this little Red Riding Hood with the mask on might even scare the Big Bad Wolf all by herself, looking like a litte red Zorro... LOL, just kidding. Nice set-up of pictures, I kept wondering where it would lead.

It is a lovely idea...and I am sure the Little Red Riding Hoods would remember their day and you for the rest of their lives....

We need to MAKE memories for these kids....thanks for sharing.

maybe some other time you can show us the other 'hoods' - RED is definitly used to catch the eye. Children love to dress up and they love to own their own books.

word verf.... changes - an omen?

I love books, good to get kids loving them also. sometimes too easy these days with all of the technology available. love the red riding hood, good job!

to answer your question, when I upload my pics, along the bottom edge are options to size them. sm, med, large, and extra large, or to delete. click on the pic after you upload it and see if you have options.

Merry Christmas!!
