Halloween Costumes and More!

Halloween is right around the corner, so if you haven't done so already, you better get moving on your child's costume! Luckily, I found my kid's costumes weeks ago for very cheap at a resale shop- two little witches. If you are good at making homemade costumes (which I am not!) and are looking for something unique, why not take a look at the great resources available at PBS Parents. Recently, I was contacted by PBS with great information to share with my readers from costume patterns, book recommendations to recipe tips. Check it out below!

"Still looking for a Halloween costume for the kids? PBS Parents is offering a free exclusive costume pattern for "Buddy," the T-Rex star from the new hit PBS KIDS series DINOSAUR TRAIN. The full-body sewing pattern, designed by the artists of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, is available in two sizes for ages 3 to 5. You can click here to access the pattern: http://www.pbs.org/parents/dinosaurtrain/costume/

"You may also want to check out the new Craft Apparent page on PBS Parents with columns on budget-friendly costume ideas and how parents and children can make a fun, festive Halloween treat bag together. In addition, parents can find tips and articles on having a fun and safe Halloween, alternative trick-or-treat giveaways, themed recipes, activities and Halloween book recommendations."

Parents can also get great ideas and tips for a safe and happy Halloween from Twitter.com/PBSParents and from other parents on Facebook/PBSParents."


If you get a chance to check out the resources above, let me know what you think. Also,if your child dresses up for Halloween, what will they be wearing this year?

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Wow, those are some great suggestions! I love the idea of going as a soda can!

Right now, I'm working with H-E-B and they are having some great deals on Halloween costumes as well - as low as $10! They have some really cute ones, too - my favorite is the cute little pirate!
