    My brother did this one year. It was really funny and cheap. He used toilet paper to make himself a mummy. Or you could use a plain white sheet for a ghost, maybe even use a cardboard box to make him an iPod or game boy hand held system using the screen for him to see through and covering it with plastic wrap. A vampire is good, and a person with a brown cloak is easy. But the best thing to do is to make a costume out of the outfits they have. Last year I had a costume were my wings didn’t arrive, but I had a top and a skirt that looked pretty and could be used at any time. This year I got an outfit that inspired a costume. Then buy cheap add ons.

    It’s traditional in our family that we never buy costumes..

    We usually throw something together about a week before. Go thru their closet and see what things can be used…but somethings are not appropriate for school with extra stuff like weapons or makeup.

    A shirt from mom or dad with a belt can be used for dresses. Use your imagination and come up with something that is an occupation or something.

    Trying using card board box for signs or a design..Some string, paint and cardboard and you could make 2sided playing card. Like the A of diamonds. Its easy to remove and easy to wear, just dont make it too big. They could wear all white or all red. Just brain storm…you’ll think of something.

    I know this doesnt give you much help, but you know what you have. Use what you have and come up with your own design.

    Good luck. Remember a flashlight for the little ones…a small hand light helps them to feel secure and safe at night.

    one of my favorites is a clear trash bag with a hole cut out for the neck, and a bunch of small different colored balloons blowed up, but them in the bag and tie it around the waist. make a tag that says jelly beans, its really cute done, a bag of jelly beans

    they could be carebears.
    Make their costumes out of hooded sweatshirts (&matching sweat pants.). Sew on some ears and paint the coresponding design (clover for good luck bear etc). on a white circle for the front. Sew it on or use iron-on paper. Or run it through the printer if you don’t want to paint it.
    After Halloween they will have cute hoodies to wear or the ears and design could be removed.
    it may not be the cheapest but it would be something they could wear after Halloween.

    When I was growing up, my mom always made our costumes the exact same way, no matter what we were.

    She took a long piece of fabric, folded it in half, cut a hole for the head in the middle (on the fold), and stitched up the sides from the bottom, leaving arm holes.

    For ghost, she used white satin.
    For princess, she used glittery gold fabric and added a tiara.
    I forget others, but it is a cheap and easy way to make a lot of costumes.

    Dress your kids like mummies. Get some of your OLD white sheets and wrap your kids in them, from head to toe. That will be cool and cheap costumes for Halloween. Get the sheets a big dirty, maybe with dirt or something to make them look old.
