Lately, I’ve been fascinated with do-it-yourself costumes because — well, let’s be honest, kids grow way too fast! And for me, saving costumes for the following year has been a tradition for me since I was a child.
My parents always bought my brothers and I a size too big. Oftentimes I would wear whatever dance costume I had from my spring recitals.
Dance costumes were expensive, and once the recitals were done they were neatly tucked away inside my closet for Halloween. I actually have three I loved the most, and still bring them out for Halloween and other reasons to dress up. We did a “76 Trombones” piece and wore nutcracker costumes so guess when that came in handy! Christmas celebrations and a Toys for Tots event I participated in for the Student Public Relations Association back in college. Here I am with other group members and friends:
Adorable Balloon Costumes
If your child isn’t in a dance school or have a costume from previous years that actually fit, then you’re in luck.
A pack of balloons will cost you a dollar at Dollar Tree and you can get creative with it. Here are four ideas:
1. Bath time bubbles.
2. Skittles or M&M’s
4. A bag of jelly beans
