Martian Costume

Time: 2-3 hours

Effort: Easy - no sewing required

Materials:

  • Rainbow wig
  • Oversized glasses
  • Face paint
  • Headband
  • Silver or gold pipe cleaners
  • Foil
  • Your child should wear green slippers and fluorescent-green leotard and tights.

Instructions: Wrap the headband in foil and attach two or more pipe cleaners to the top for the antenna. Have fun painting your child's face in a variety of psychedelic colors and outer space designs.

Tips: Girl Martians can add a sheer fluorescent-green ballet skirt. If you can't find a wig, try dyeing your child's hair with washable hair tints. If you can't find oversized glasses, try making your own out of cardboard. Cover the cut-out cardboard with foil or decorate with fluorescent markers. Let your imagination go wild and add your own touches to this visitor from another planet. Can be easily modified. If weather is cold, have your child wear thermals under the costume, or have her wear a green sweatsuit.
