Wacky Hair Day and Mufti!

P is again off to horse camp for the holidays, lucky girl! To celebrate the end of the term they had Wacky Hair Day and Mufti ('muff-tee'). Mufti is a kiwi tradition wherein the kids are allowed to forgo their uniforms for the day if they bring a gold coin donation (1 or 2 dollars). The money is then given away to a children's charity. Mufti is a much celebrated day for P and she was thrilled that it coincided with Wacky Hair Day.

For most kids and parents there was a lot of ratting and aerosol hair products involved. Fortunately P chose to go for plaits (braids) with wool (yarn - no natural fibers could be found in that yarn!) instead. It took 90 minutes to get the braids in, but she won 5th place for wackiest hair school wide.
