Halloween Costume Ideas For Kids

Little Devil Halloween CostumeI 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".

We made up his face with a black triangular pug nose, surrounded by doggy freckles. Then we wrapped around a collar and attached it to a leash held by the man. When they stopped at a door, the DOG would get on all fours and sometimes sit up and beg, holding his treat bag in his teeth.

Approximate Time:

Supplies:

Dog

Instructions:

Stuff two matching socks with other rolled up socks. Sew these from the top, with the toes hanging down, on opposite sides of the woolen cap. Dress the smaller child in the sweatpants and sweatshirt. Wrap around a "collar" and attach a leash. With black makeup, make a triangular pug nose at the nostrils of the child's own nose, and make dots on the cheeks for doggy freckles.

The larger child should dress in Sunday or dress clothes with matching dress shoes. Each should have a Halloween treat bag, the man's to carry at hand, and the dog's to be carried by mouth when they are posed at each doorway.

To make this simple costume, cut a platter from a large circle of cardboard with a hole in the middle for child's legs to fit through. Tie on some off-white yarn strings like suspenders.

Don't waste money buying them at a store. Make your own. I did last year (red ones for a Dorothy costume) and they held up well.
