Wesley really wanted a backpack with a character on it…  Most of them are not for me.
But then he found a good one with Mario on it.

When we went for kindergarten testing another kid had his backpack… So I started to think of ways to make it more unique.  And since it is mostly white – I was worried that it would become mostly brown in no time.

So I decided to color it.  At first I was just going to color a few.  Then that evolved into coloring them all.  Then Wesley wanted the background area a color too…

Here is my finished product:

Wesley LOVES his Mario backpack even more now that when he picked it out from the store.  I have to say… I love it more now too.  :)

I can’t wait to see it on him tomorrow for his first day of kindergarten!

    I don’t think we tried to wash it. He managed to keep it a lot cleaner than I ever would have guessed.
