Halloween Costumes

Halloween’s almost here, which means there’s only about a week left to put the finishing touches on your kids’ costumes. Or to start putting the finishing touches on their costumes. Or, well, to start putting together their costumes, period.

If you’re making your children’s Halloween costumes this year and are a little bit stuck, the Family Care Office will be hosting a Halloween Costume Making Workshop. Starting at 9:30 and running until noon, the workshop covers instructions for making three kinds of kids’ costumes. And you don’t have to be there for the full two and a half hours — drop by any time! Materials are provided, but feel free to bring an in-progress costume if you’d like some assistance with it.

Remember to register beforehand, and get more details here.

If you can’t make it tomorrow, Reader’s Digest has a list of creative costume ideas with little or no sewing, complete with instructions, and iVillage also has a list of easy homemade costume ideas. If you’d rather reduce, re-use, and recycle with your costumes, Green Halloween has some tips on staying eco-friendly this Halloween.

Good luck!
