Splish splash I was taking a bath! Dress up your little one like a bubble bath, they will be sure to love it, and they will be, hands down, the cutest kid on the block. All you need is an all-white outfit, white balloons, a shower cap, and if you want to go all-in, you can get a rubber duck and scrub to add to the fun.

Channel your inner magic by dressing your little one in this DIY unicorn costume! It’s super easy to assemble all you need to do is, dress your child in an all-white outfit, create a tail and mane out of different colored yarn (let them choose what colors they want!), and lastly, make a horn out of styrofoam, paint, and glitter.

Lastly, if you have multiple children and to create matching costumes, you can have a whole box of different colored crayons running around the neighborhood on Halloween night! All you need to do is dress your kids in whatever color crayon they desire to be, use felt letters to write crayons, and top them with a cone-shaped hat in the matching color!
