Yay, Halloween is coming and all the VERY cool costumes. I am especially fond of the creative DIY costumes that are created each year by awesome parents everywhere. I on the other hand, find myself at Party City grabbing a costume. Booooo for me. 😦 Last year a friend created a Ghostbusters costume for his daughter with the proton pack. It was one of the best costumes I saw last year. I can’t wait to see what her dad creates this year, I know it will be awesome. Here are a few of our favorite finds from Pinterest.
Anyone up for tall whip non fat latte?? I know I could go for one. Another VERY cool costume.
I looked through a lot of costumes, but these four captured my inner DIY heart. So, what’s brewing in your home this year? Are you making a costume or are you buying? Love to see your kiddies costumes, post a picture in the comments.
When it comes to crafting with kids, there’s one magical material that always comes through: paper. Whether it’s construction paper, computer paper, or yesterday’s newspaper, your art supply drawer isn’t complete without this particular DIY ingredient. That’s why we’ve gathered up 15 crafts that spotlight paper in a big way from cootie catchers to garlands to festive hats. Check ’em out below!
1. Medieval Crown Craft
This craft from First Palette is fit for the pint-sized royalty in your life. With construction paper, crepe paper, and as much sequin bling as you can find, you’ll have a new addition for the dress-up bin. Head here for the full instructions.
2. Paper Doll Chain Ballerinas
Paper doll chains are a pretty classic paper craft and we think this one from Mer Mag has a particularly irresistible charm. It’s perfect for your aspiring prima ballerina’s room…
These are too cute and very creative. Love seeing people actually think and create cool costumes for kids. Love the Peter Pan Shadow, Awesome Space Man & Edward Scissorhands.
