Homemade Halloween Photobooth Strip Costume

Here’s a really quick and easy Halloween costume idea – especially if you have access to a photobooth in your area. We had Moses put on a wig and take some fun shots in the photobooth. Then we blew up the strip at Kinkos and glued it to big piece of cardboard. We cut out the photo second from the top so that he had the perfect spot to place his face. For Halloween, he just has to wear the same shirt he wore in the booth along with the wig and hold up the strip while he walks. So much fun!

Halloween Heart Face Box DIY

by Sally J Shim

It’s time to start thinking about Halloween goodies for my boys to pass out to their classmates. We love the Comme des Garçons Play heart logo so I thought it would be fun to make our own Halloween inspired version. You can fill the pillow boxes with sweet treats like candy or cookies or non-sweet treats like crayons and stickers.

A Red Riding Hood Party

by Casey Baudoin

With the season turning cooler, it is the perfect time to throw a Red Riding Hood party.  Throw all the party goodies into picnic baskets, and find a perfect little spot hidden in the trees.  Any kid would love playing wolf with these masks, and the finger puppets are perfect party favors.

For the little girl who loves horses, a pony party filled with vintage riding ribbons, pony cake pops and homemade stick horses, is just what she needs! Friends can have horse races, and even craft up their own ribbons together, to take home for themselves!
