Clothesline Halloween Costume (for a Group)

Time: 15 minutes

Effort: Quick and easy — no sewing required

Materials:

  • Clothesline
  • Clothespins
  • Items of clothing
  • Safety pins

Instructions: This is a group costume. Kids can dress as they want to, but it's more fun if they're wearing long johns or pajamas. Starting with the first child, attach the cord to one shoulder with a safety pin and to the other shoulder with another safety pin.

Use a clothespin to attach a piece of underwear (or some other item of clothing) to the cord, about one foot from the first person's shoulder. Continue attaching the cord to the other members of the clothesline with safety pins, and hanging clothes on the line with clothespins between the kids.

This works great at a party — where the clothesline can stay together!
