Bond with your child over halloween through this super fun activity

It’s that time of the year! It’s that time of the year! Yes it’s here, halloween is here!

Halloween is celebrated across many countries. It is the shortened form of All Hallows’ Evening which is the eve of the All Hallows’ Day. This day marks the beginning of a three day period dedicated to remembering the dead including saints (hallows). Though now Halloween has been evolved from the ancient Celtic holiday of Samhain. Over the centuries, Halloween transitioned from a pagan ritual to a day of parties, costumes, jack-o-lanterns and trick-or-treating for kids and adults.

Everyone loves to dress up ghostly for the day and enjoy themselves. Many people go to the stores or online to go through the vast variety of costumes but Why don’t you DIY? Yes, like every year, this year you don’t have to spend money on your kid’s costume but rather make one for them to make them feel more comfortable and connected to you.

Here, we bring some of the best Halloween costume ideas for children that you and your child can create together :

1. ZOMBIE :


For this look, all you need is tattered clothes, face painting colours, and a zombie-like visage. You can actually decide and paint the parts of their face, hands, or feet are to be decayed. Use a dark red lipstick to show lips covered in blood. And your zombie is ready to hit the roads!

2. CARL :


Carl is an old man from the animated movie “UP” and his costume will make any kid look adorable. You don’t have to do anything extra for this, all you need are; brown pants, white shirt, and a cardigan to get his look right. You can make a walker using pipes and tennis balls for the base. Get kid-size glasses and neatly comb down your child’s hair. 
You can also tie some helium balloons on their hands, to make it look more detailed.

3. HARRY POTTER :


Who doesn’t want to be Harry Potter? You did, your kids do and their kids will too because it’s Harry Potter everyone’s favourite wizard. You can buy gryffindor scarf from the store or online. The rest of the outfit should resemble that of a prep school boy with trousers, white shirt and a sweater vest. Buy round glasses online and draw on a lightning-shaped scar on your child’s face using an eyeliner. Make a wand with a stick and teach your child a few spells from the Potter-verse.

4. MINION :


As one of the most beloved children’s characters in recent history, the minion outfit is sure to be a hit. Get your child to help you make this costume from cardboard. Cut out the template of a minion from the cardboard and draw the details of the minion on it. Your child can help you fill in the paint. Leave holes for the arm.

5. DOROTHY :


To dress your kid as Dorothy, you can get a simple white shirt and a plaid blue overalls dress. Some sparkly red shoes and a basket with a toy dog, if you don’t have a real one  to complete the look.

6. PIRATE :


Pull some striped long sleeved t-shirt, a black vest, tattered pants, and a pirate hat together for the perfect pirate costume. A black eye patch and a toy sword will work well to complete the costume.


From monsters to animals to food to famous people- nature,  there’s no end to the ideas you can use for your child’s halloween costume as long as your kid is excited and contribute to the DIY activity.
