I always thought ugly Christmas sweater contests were sort of silly – until today when we held a spectacular one on the pediatric floor of the KU Medical Center. It was fabulous with 10 of the most outrageous works of art you can imagine. The kids (and several moms) started with the not-so-attractive yellow tear away hospital gowns and adorned them with jewels, holiday greenery, pompoms (literally hundreds!), foam stickers, glittery garland and pretty much every other tacky treasure found in the Christmas clearance aisle at area craft stores.
The best part was that kids of all ages got into the fun. AND everybody won a prize!
