I have two sons four years apart in age. One Halloween, I dressed the older one in a dress shirt, vest, bow tie and dress trousers with leather Sunday shoes. He was the MAN. The younger one wore a black sweatshirt and sweatpants, with a simple black woolen cap to which I had sewed stuffed black socks for "hang dog ears".

This Halloween bib was less than a dollar and with a couple of snips, it became the front pocket on my daughter's tunic shirt. I simply cut off the top portions and sewed around the edges.
I am looking for cute Halloween costume ideas for my 18 month old little girl.

Giving her some "sitting room" you can attach purple balloons to her jammies and make a stem for her hat. Then she's a cluster of grapes!
I have seen this done and it's super cute and inexpensive. PBP
When my daughter was that age I made her a little red cape with hood and tied it around her shoulder so she could be little red riding hood. Took less than a yard of red fabric. She carried a little basket supposedly to hold food for her grandmother. If you fold fabric in middle, sew across the top and gather around the neck part for the back it works out great. Not much sewing. Can be done by hand if you don't have a sewing machine. Blessings.

This is 8 month old Victoria, trick or treating at Grandma and Grandpa's house. She is a pretty pink butterfly.
Abby, 13 months is just a adorable poodle in this pink outfit. She has won many hearts over!
I need an idea for a creative and easy DIY Halloween costume for my 2 year old son. He won't wear anything on his head. He's too young to really understand characters and he needs to be able to wear it all day at daycare for a party (playing, eating, diaper changes, etc.). Help!

Outfits that worked for my kids: football player (just get the jersey, you can even paste fabric numbers onto a plain teeshirt and write the name on the back. sneakers.
soldier; khaki or olive green pants with a camo top. the good thing about this one, is that you can use the pants and top any time, so it's not wasteful.
farmer. jeans, checkered shirt and a bandanna around the neck.
The cutest one I ever saw for a 2 yr old was a clear plastic bag (leg holes, head out of top). The bag was filled with small multi-colored blown up balloons. The little one can wear tights and a t-shirt or long underwear (depending on weather), any shoes. I asked "what are you?" The little boy said, "Jelly Beans!" His mother was walking with him, but if he would have fallen, he certainly wouldn't have injured himself!
