Be safe tomorrow night! Keep those children in sight at all times, and look up safety tips (remember your flashlight!)
Ok here are some cute halloween costumes using BOXES!! (someone actually emailed this list to me so I have no idea where it’s from!)
Last year I made my 6 year old into his favorite POKEMON card. I used a box and made his head BLASTOISE’S head. My computer scanner, felt ,my computer’s publisher and a little creativity made him the hit of the party!
Paint it silver, glue on a few extras a presto.. a robot.
Paint it red, tack on some paper plate wheels, and you are a race car.
Paint it white and a handle and you will be a cool refrigerator.
Paint it light tan, tack a small flat box. Draw on a keyboard, you will be the first walking Macintosh. (may work with Windows 😉 )
Wrap it in Christmas paper, add a large bow.. wow a Christmas present.
Paint it bright colors, and a crank. You can pop into the local Halloween party as a Jack-in-the-box
Cover with table cloth, glue on silver plastic platter in the middle (cut hole for head to pop through. Glue on a couple of place settings of Plastic dishes, and glasses. Now your head in on a silver platter.
Thomas the Engine & Friends
Get a small box big enough to fit around your childs waist. Paint box
blue (for Thomas), or green (for Percy) etc. With colored construction paper add stripes and train number to sides, also add black train wheels. On front make a 3D face with construction paper to match your train of choice. Attach a belt from a robe to each side and harness over shoulders. Dress child up with a conductors hat.
Using a large card board box and five different colors of contact paper or construction paper (contact paper is easier to stick on) enough to do 5 sides, black pants and long sleeve shirt. this was done very inexpensively and we had a lot of fun with it.
Grab a friend and take 2 cardboard boxes, paint them white. Cut out several black circles (From construction paper) and glue them in the appropriate places to make you and your friend a pair of dice! It’s so easy,
Have the second person dress as a key ring and use a light weight chain to attach the two people. To make the key ring cut several large keys out of poster board, attach one to the back and another to the front. Attach a medal ring to a hat, then attach a few more keys to the ring.
Take a medium sized box (apple/orange boxes were a good size) cut two round holes in the sides for the arms. Hot glue 6 cottage cheese containers on the top of the box (the flat part) like a Lego piece. Spray paint the whole thing whatever color lego you want to be. (We chose our colors based on what color sweats and turtle necks we had on hand) Take a smaller box that will fit on top of their head snugly and hot glue one cottage cheese container and spray paint it the same color. Just slip into the open part of the back of the box and stick your arms through the holes.
Walmart or Kmart sells cardboard dressers in the laundry department. Cut out holes for arms on the sides and hole on top
for head. I put foam in the inside for the shoulders to hold it up. I painted the dresser and wrote on each drawer underwear, socks, ect. Hot glue a doily to top with hairbrush and hair accessories. Hang underwear, socks, shirt, and pants out of drawers. Put a small lamp shade on child’s head so neck and face are base of lamp. From: anonymous (by way if you don’t want to spend the $$ for a cardboard dresser, it wouldn’t take much to make one out of a box. Attaching long flat boxes on the front and hot glue small balls on the front for pulls.
