Beanie Baby Halloween Costume
Time: 30 minutes to 1 hour
Effort: Quick and easy no sewing required
- Sleeper in an animal print
- Socks to match sleeper
- White poster board
- Colored pencils
- Red ribbon
- Safety pin
- Plastic headband (blend to hair color)
- Gloves (optional)
- Face makeup (optional)
Instructions: Buy a sleeper in an animal print and socks to cover your child's shoes.
Fold the poster board in half and draw a heart design to look like the Ty label. Cut out the heart, leaving the left edge uncut, so it will open like a card. Color the design with the colored pencil (some markers will run if it rains). Open the heart, and write a poem about the animal on the inside. Punch a hole in the left corner, add a short ribbon, and pin it to the collar of the sleeper.
Using folded poster board, cut out the ears (triangles for cats, rounded semi-circles for others). Put the headband on your child's head, and position the ears around the headband. Remove the headband, then glue or staple the ears on.
