You can’t sew and you’re on a limited budget when it comes to Halloween costumes. I get it. This is us every Halloween. We’ve made our kids Halloween costumes before and wow was it stressful. (Two years ago one of our sons decided he wanted to be a sour patch kid. It turned out pretty good, but Todd and I were a frazzled mess!)
If you’re into DIY projects, but not the super complicated ones that take hours and days to create, I have just the Halloween Costume DIY idea for you! And, you can involve the kids in the process.
Available for $24.95 in Kiwi Crate’s Celebration Shop are their Halloween Crates which include the same high-quality materials and inspiration for hands on fun found in all of Kiwi Crate’s activity boxes. It was love at first sight when I saw their Flying Fairy and Superhero Halloween Costume Crates.
The Flying Fairy costume crate includes the materials and inspiration needed to create a fairy wand, skirt, and wings. Kids use colorful ribbon, sparkly tape, and glittery sticky foam shapes to design their own wand for casting spells and granting wishes. To make a fluttery fairy skirt, kids weave together bright strips of fabric with elastic ribbon – an activity that helps develop fine motor skills.
Kids can save the world this Halloween with their own specially-created Superhero costume. This crate comes with all the materials for children to decorate a satin cape with sticky bright felt and shapes. This clever cape, combined with a mask, will hide children’s’ real identities. Kids can even design and color their mask with cool metallic markers.
