"2013 Cow Appreciation Day" at Chick-Fil-A

I can not believe that Chick-Fil-A celebrated another "Cow Appreciation Day" this past Friday, July 12. This year has gone by really fast! We that in mind, let me tell you... I was not able to add a ton of accessories to our costume from last year as I had planned on my post in 2012. (read HERE). What we did add was this fun accessory. We made our own "Eat mor chikin" signs. They turned out pretty good. They looked like the real thing :)

We proudly wore them with the rest of our outfit :) What do you think about them?

If you like them and you would like to make some for next year, here are the materials and instructions.


White color cardstock

Black Sharpie Marker

Red Sharpie Marker

Hole punch (big enough for the Jute to pass through)

Jute (I got it at Home Depot)

Paper trimmer

Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink

Distress ink applicator

Instructions to make your own "Eat mor chikin" sign:

1. Cut the cardstock to 5 3/4 in. x 7 1/4 in.

2. Use the black sharpie marker to write the words "EAT MOR CHIKIN" (as shown in the picture)

3. Use the red sharpie marker to draw the "CHICK-Fil-A" logo (as shown in the picture)

4. Punch out a whole on both top corners of the sign

5. Distress edges with the walnut stain distress ink and applicator 

6. Cut about 30" of Jute

7. Thread jute through the whole and make a knot on the front of the sign

8. Adjust lenght and repeat step 7  on second whole

That is it! Very simple to make. My oldest son made his own and I made one for my youngest and for myself.

We had a great time dressing up as cows again. Getting to eat lunch for free and having a place for the kids to play made it even more fun.

We'll see what I'll be adding for "Cow Appreciation Day" 2014... I am thinking maybe face paint? ;)
