Home Made Halloween Tricks and A Few Treats #FamilyActivities
We are ready for Halloween. Instead of a store bought costume this year, we went with a theme - BAT. Then we collected items we had already; black long sleeve tee shirt, black leggings, and a Toothless the Dragon hat with glow in the dark eyes. The only thing we had to buy, was the bat wing cape (even though I could have made it with fabric). Thrift shopping is great for finding bed sheets and tablecloths to use in costume and craft activities. I found a warm black hoodie for her wear as part of her Trick or Treating excursion, at our local Value Village for $3.
Instead, she went for shades of grey and plaid! I made most of my own costumes as a kid, and only remember one store bought costume- the plastic apron costumes of the 70's or 80's, with the plastic mask that you couldn't see or breath through. I'm sure I was a clown, which would explain the long lasting phobia years later. If I see one of those creepy clown people pranking our city, I might have to throw frozen eggs at them.
