Gift Box Costume

Time: 45 minutes

Effort: Quick and easy – no sewing required


  • Big cardboard box
  • Festive and fun wrapping paper (enough to cover the box)
  • Scotch tape
  • Large bow
  • Greeting card (homemade is good)
  • Scissors
  • Black or dark-colored clothing

Instructions: Cut the bottom of the box out. Cut out armholes in the sides of the box, and a head hole in the top.

Wrap the box with the wrapping paper. (Leave the bottom of the box open.) Attach the card to the top of the box.

Once the box is wrapped, have your child get dressed in dark clothing, and then slip the box on over his clothes. Put the bow on top of his head.
