As a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday OF-ALL-TIME. As a mom, I really find it hard to embrace. It’s so much work, the decorations are not that cute, and all I can think of the whole night is cavities. Of course, my kids are gaga over this one night (as they should be) so I always rally and try and live vicariously through them.
Making costumes is one part I can really get into. I mean, look at these DIY Halloween costumes for kids… how amazing are they? One-Man-Band boy? That is just brilliant. And the Abercrombie model? Ok, I know we all wish we’d thought of that!
I found 46 of the cutest, funniest, and easiest (for the most part) make-it-yourself costume ideas for the little ones. I have links where I could find them, but most of these you could probably pull together without help because you are cleverer than you think!
