10 Trick or Treat Bags for Halloween

Want to make your kid a trick or treat bag that’s as cool as his Halloween costume? Sure, a paper grocery bag will do the trick, but if you have some extra time on your hands you can whip up something extra special. The best part? Your kid can use these treat bags year after year.

Doctor Who TARDIS Costume

Make a Doctor Who Costume Complete with a TARDIS

My husband and I are huge fans of Doctor Who. We await each new episode impatiently, and watching the new Who is our Sunday night ritual while the season is on. When I was researching my roundup of toddler costume ideas, I came across this Doctor Who family costume that’s so wonderful I had to share it all on its own. Reese Dixon transformed her son’s wheelchair into a TARDIS, and his Matt Smith costume is spot on. I’m getting all emotional looking at it again as I write this. It’s just so good.

10 Toddler Halloween Costumes

10 DIY Toddler Halloween Costumes

I know: Halloween feels like it’s still pretty far off, but if you’re planning to make your kid a costume, it’s probably a good idea to at least get your idea together now. Planning a costume for a toddler is tricky, because you might have trouble explaining why he needs to wear a mask or keep a hat on. Keep your toddler’s personality in mind when you choose the DIY toddler costume you want to make. You’ll both have a happier Halloween!
