My daughter worked so hard researching Tubman's life. There were plenty of articles online, but what she enjoyed the most was reading books about her life. She read Who was Harriet Tubman? by Yona Zeldis McDonough and Time for Kids: Harriet Tubman: A Woman of Courage.
Because it is a living museum, she had to dress as Harriet in a historical costume. She could wear a costume or make her own. We did both. Luckily, I was asked to review a costume for Costume Discounters. What perfect timing! I searched on their site to pick out a costume that I could review that Sunshine could use for her project. There was a large variety, but I wasn't able to find exactly what we needed. So what do you do in the Creative and Curious Kids household? You improvise. We chose a Colonial Girl Costume and turned it into a Harriet Tubman costume. It will get a lot of use, because now she wants to be a colonial girl for Halloween. The costume is adorable and affordable. The quality is good for the price that you are paying. The colonial costume retails for under $17.00 and is 100% polyester. Below is a photo of the original costume from Costume Discounters.

And next, you'll see how we switched things up a bit to turn her into Harriet Tubman.
