A definite must for creating a Halloween costume

Filed under: Activities: Babies, Baby Essentials

In our corner of the world it almost always snows on Halloween. The cold weather presents a bit of problem when trying to dream up cute costumes for the kids so that they don't have to wear a bulky parka over their creations. One of the best ways around this issue is use a footed pajama sleeper for the costume base. I have created everything from Clifford the Big Red Dog to a skeleton to a lion using this idea. You can easily attach tails or glow-in-the-dark tape to the sleeper to create many different costumes.

Of course this concept does not work as well with an older child. But once they outgrow the sleeper stage, an over sized pair of sweat pants and seat shirt work well as a costume base.

Do you have any tried and true ideas that you use for dressing your children at Halloween?
