Find the Perfect Skating Costume
First, keep in mind that your kids will be roller-skating, scrambling for candy, and being their silly selves at Fun Spot’s Children’s Halloween Party. Yes, a mini Rubik’s Cube costume may be cute, but you’ll want to plan for costumes that give them a full range of motion. Here are a few other tips to finding an easy kids Halloween costume (without slacking on the cute-factor):
- Shop thrift stores. You never know what you’ll find!
- Get creative! You’d be amazed at what you can make with plain clothes and a few simple props. For example: pin pale pink balloons to light-colored clothes for an instant bubble bath. You can also dress your child in all black (ninja), cover them in cobwebs (spiderweb), or paint squares on their face to make a pixelated Facebook photo.
- Become a DIY master. Does your son love the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Paint a disposable turkey pan green and voila! Instant Raphael shell. Is your daughter all about Pokemon Go? Dress her in a red shirt, white skirt, and black belt with a white craft paper circle over the buckle. Pokeball, go!
- Recycle. Make use of last year’s costume by passing it down to a younger sibling, trading with the neighbors, or adding a few details to make a brand new costume.
