- Kids Halloween Costumes: Quick and Cheap Homemade
You can buy a Halloween costume anywhere, but I maintain that homemade is best. Quick and cheap is even better. It's not difficult to come up with really cute and clever costumes with junk you've got laying...
· Pea in the Pod. This costume is particularly a good choice for infants, as it is both warm and adorable. Green peas are a perfect complement to a baby’s small features, and the enclosed costume acts much like a blanket around your baby to keep him warm in case you will be outside on Halloween. Dress other members of your family as different vegetables and you will be a garden set!
· Minnie Mouse. Minnie has not waned in popularity in recent years, and her polka dot skirt and round black ears are still a favorite during Halloween. Be sure to complete the look with a little red bow! If you happen to have twins or children around the same age, Mickey and Minnie are an unbeatable combination.
· Horton the Elephant. Horton the elephant from Dr. Seuss’s Horton Hears a Who is a good choice for kids who are fans of the 2008 movie based on the book. There are many Horton costumes available online, and many come in romper form with a hat that looks like Horton’s head.
· Neytiri. Neytiri from Avatar is a popular character to model a costume after. If your kids really want to get into face and body paint, buy about a gallon of blue paint and let them have at it! Don’t forget Neytiri’s tail!
· Crayola Crayon. Dressing kids up like crayons will make you feel particularly creative! Crayon costumes can be purchased online or made at home easily by using colored poster board and a black marker. Add cones as hats to represent the crayon points. If you have several children who want coordinating costumes, this can be a great choice, as children can pick their favorite color and go as a set.
· Witch. The witch has been a standard costume choice ever since costumes first started to appear for Halloween in America around the 1930s. The black, pointy hat is a witch’s signature accessory, but the rest of the costume can be made of whatever black material who happen to have at home. Have your little witch carry a broomstick and you never know—you might get some housecleaning out of the deal!
