You and your preschooler may have begun discussing costumes with fall’s first drifting leaves and dipping temperatures. Or, you may wait until the week before Halloween to begin considering costume choices. Whatever your approach, you do not need to spend a lot of time or much money to create an amazing DIY Halloween costume for your preschooler!
Costumes at Halloween
Costumes have long been associated with the Halloween holiday, and dressing up became popular in the United States around the turn of the 20th century. By the 1930s, when trick-or-treating had become more widespread, it was common for both children and adults to dress up in a costume or disguise for the holiday.
DIY costumes for your preschooler
Enlist your preschooler in determining the best Halloween costumes for both of you, and then work together on completing them. Tackling a DIY project is a great way to build memories with your little one!
Holding Out for a Superhero
Fashion this popular costume with a few simple pieces—a comfortable tee and pants, a large piece of cloth for the cape, and a slip on mask. Then embellish with accessories and props for a distinctive ready-to-save-the-day look!
Tiny Dancers and Princesses
Create a sweet tiny dancer outfit by pairing a tee and tights with any tutu, feather boa, fluffy scarf, or other material that you may have on hand. Add a tiara and a toy wand to turn the costume into that of a fairy princess!
Who Let the Creatures Out
Pick black shirt, pants, and shoes for a cute and easy creature costume. For a cat, black pipe cleaners stand in for ears and face paint provides a nose and whiskers. Add a colored overshirt, or vary the color of the clothes, to make other creature costumes, like a bear, a sheep, a spider, or even a ladybug!
