15 DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids

{Super simple, for the last minute mom!}

I dropped the ball. Again.

Back in September, I was perusing Pinterest for Halloween costumes. This is it! This is the year that we are going to MAKE our Halloween costume, rather than pay $50 at the last minute and pray that the UPS guy gets here in time. THIS IS OUR YEAR.

I showed my 8-year-old how to search on Pinterest, and he was putting in different terms and found several different things that he liked.

Fast forward to today, October 8. We haven’t started anything. Haven’t even looked in the garage to see if we have a cardboard box that could be made into a Rubik’s cube. Haven’t even looked through our closets for old clothing that could be torn/stained/cut on purpose to make a costume.

How adorable is this? And easy to do!

I know myself. If I haven’t started it by October 8, it’s not gonna happen.

So I went to Ollie’s and Big Lots. He’s “too old” or so he says, for a purchased costume as basic as TMNT. Being 8 ain’t what it used to be.

What are we going to do about Halloween? Hell if I know!

For starters, I have added the word SIMPLE to my internet searches. Just hoping he finds something he likes.

He loves video games. So really hoping that he likes the Pokemon Go costume that is shown.
