This year Kira wants to be a purple fairy - she has designed her wand and on Friday I took her to the craft store so she could pick out the ribbon and wooden dowel. I am trying my best to take a step back and let Kira make as much of her costume as she would like.
Nola wanted to be a monster truck, then a monster, and now a ghost. She really wants to be scary. The loveliest thing is that Nola's version of scary is so very sweet!
In case your kids still need some Halloween inspiration, here are a few costumes that we have made...
Super-easy and super-cute baby robots:
1. Glue cookie trays onto a box (or stick metallic drawer liner to the box).
2. Stick a few glittery shapes on the boxes for buttons. (we were going to the minimal iBabyRobot.)
3. Accessorize with bottles, pacies, pig tails, and silver clothes.
2 yards of felt per kite.
1. Cut out two squares of felt, turn the squares 45 degrees to make a kite shape.
2. Sew top sides, but leave a hole for the head.
3. Cut off the top point and with the scissors, shape a neck line.
4. To make the skeleton, cut long stripes of brown felt, sew them together, and stuffed with poly fill. Use a lot of filling so they are really hard.
5. Sew the 'poles' onto the front of the kite and embellish with wool.
6. Sew a tail and some bows on the bottom of the kite.
