Salt Shaker Costume

Ages: Elementary school and up

Time: 20 minutes

Effort: Quick and easy - no sewing required

Materials:

  • White garbage bag
  • White paper plate
  • Black marker
  • Stapler

Instructions: Cut hole in the bottom of the garbage bag so it fits over your child's head. Cut a hole on each side of bag for your child's arms. With black marker, put a big "S" on the front of garbage bag. Then, take paper plate and draw little holes on the top. Staple a piece of string to each side of plate and tie under your child's chin. You have yourself a salt shaker.

Other details: If you have two kids, you can make salt and pepper shakers. Just use a white trash bag and a black one.
