For those of you that don't already know...today is Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-a July 2014.
Click here for the official website. We have had several cow associated related costumes and attire in the past. This year, I made some simple capes for my three super heroes. I sewed a lightning bolt on the back, and attached some ribbon to tie around their neck. However, you could just as easily use press in tape or adhesive to whip up some of these capes!
Q: What is Cow Appreciation Day?
A: For one day only, black and white spots, cow bells and furry ears will be appropriate attire in the nation's second largest chicken chain. In celebration of July 11, Cow Appreciation Day, an unofficial – yet nationally recognized holiday, Chick-fil-A will award a free combo meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) to any customer who comes to one of the chain's 1,200-plus restaurants fully dressed as a cow.
Q: What does "fully dressed as a cow" really mean?
A: "Fully dressed like a cow" means 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.
Here are some of our past projects...
We just glued some black felt on a white t-shirt.
This was a fancier version of the cape we made in the past. I can't seem to find it though after our move 6 months ago!
Either way, the point is you can score some free Chick-fil-a today! They even have free printables on their website to make it really simple.
Good luck with your cow costumes! We must fly off now to Chick-fil-a to celebrate this special day!!
