We have discussed Halloween costumes quite a bit over the last few weeks. We have also discussed how toddlers are sometimes not the best candidates to take out on Halloween night because of their unpredictable nature. I know for me, the thought of going all out on an expensive costume for a 2-year old who may decide on Halloween night that it’s not happening was just ridiculous. To that end, I always bought something cheap and easy but they were never the world’s coolest costumes. In some Pinterest searching, I found so many adorable (and easy) DIY toddler costumes that made me regret the lame ones I bought when my kids were that age. See below for 10 of the cutest DIY toddler costumes:
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Adorableness
Hell, my 5-year old would STILL love this! As it is, we’ve already bought him the canned Raphael costume from Target that he was begging for but I wish I had spotted this first. How cute and so totally easy!
2. Umbrella Bat
This is so totally creative- an old, black umbrella makes the bat wings. Even if you don’t already have a black umbrella I’m sure a cheap one could be had at Wal-Mart or Target.
3. Super Toddler
I cannot get over how adorable this is. Your toddler boy probably already has pants and a button-down white shirt leftover from last Christmas or Easter (or you could possibly get hand-me-downs from a friend or cousin!). Find a Superman t-shirt, $2 costume glasses and make a cape and you are set.
4. Lego Kid
Cardboard boxes, tempera paint, glue and Solo cups? Sign me up! I know quite a few little boys in the 2-5 year old range that would go nuts for this! And what would it cost, $5? Love it.
5. Who-who’s The Cutest Owl Baby
Ok, so this one is a tad more complex but you can use hot glue instead of sewing to lay out the felt feathers so it’s still pretty low maintenance and easy! And just oh so cute.
