Hey, Moms! Guess what? Tomorrow is Halloween. Yes, you read that right. TOMORROW. As in “less-than-ten-hours-from-now-tomorrow”. Got your kid’s costume made yet?
I’ll take that as a “no”. Don’t worry! I’ve got you covered! Here are some easy-peasy, “I-can-make-this-in-twenty-minutes-or-less-with-a-trip-to-Walmart-or-Dollar-Tree” costumes that are actually creative and will look like you spent months planning!
All you need to make this costume is poster board (literally $1 at Walmart) and a black Sharpie. That’s it!
Get your kid a striped shirt (honestly, any color shirt with black stripes will work), a black beanie (hi, Dollar Tree!) and a black mask (yep, DT again!). Don’t have a drawstring bag? Grab a white pillowcase and draw on it with a magic marker. BOOM. Done.
Every little boy probably has a red polo and khakis somewhere in his closet. Borrow a headset from someone (or run to the thrift store!) and you’ve got yourself a clever costume on the cheap. Click the link above and print off an “official” Jake nametag!
This may be the easiest costume. Just dress your little one up in the cutest outfit she has, grab some cardboard, cut out a “winder”, and you’ve got yourself an adorable little doll!
Got a black t-shirt? Cut out some white paper and grab that plasticware from last week’s takeout!
Walmart/Dollar Tree/Party City/Target has devil horns like crazy! Cut out a yolk and you’ve got yourself a “punny” costume for less than a bag of Halloween candy!
