'Tis the season to be spooky! Halloween is just around the corner, and you know what that means. 1. Time to watch 30 Rock's Werewolf Bar Mitzvah episode, and 2. Time to break out the sewing machine and get your DIY on!
There's nothing cuter than the sight of a little kid trick-or-treating in a homemade Halloween costume, so nix the store-bought Spiderman suit and get inspired by one of these adorable easy-to-make outfits.
Is your kid an animal lover? Transform an old grey sweater into an adorable elephant costume with an extra-long trunk (pictured above)! Head to sewing blog The Train To Crazy for an easy tutorial.
Excuse us while we pass out from cuteness overload! This snowball costume is delightful, seasonably appropriate, and the best part? It's a cinch to make. For instructions, hit up Parenting.com.
Up, Up In the Air!
Need a last-minute costume idea? Send your kid on a (pretend) hot air balloon ride! Just inflate some balloons, decorate a cardboard box to look like a basket, and your kid will be ready to get his or her spook on in no time. For more on this project, head to Country Living.
