This is Halloween! Orange! Pumpkins! Costumes! And More!
This is the season to dress up in silly and scary Halloween costumes and head door to door to collect delicious treats to eat! You may have some spooky ideas of your own, but here are 3 quick tips on how to pick the perfect costume:
Tip 1: Use things of your own from home!
Look up your favorite character and then raid your wardrobe to pull together your own spin on a character’s costume! But don’t just stop there, your entire house is filled with things that can be used in your costumes: check the kitchen, the garage, the closet, all around!
Tip 2: Get creative!
Take inspiration for your kids’ costume from all around you. You can stick with the classics of a vampire, ghost, mummy, or zombie, or what about combining those things? Either mesh them together within each other (like a vampire-zombie or a mummy-ghost) or pull something else into the mix! A vampire-baseball player or a zombie cheerleader, the opportunities are endless!
Tip 3:Don’t do it alone!
Find some buddies, siblings, and parents and keep everyone together by making a group effort in your costume and doing a group costume! Search your favorite books, movies, tv shows and bands to give everybody a role that they would enjoy to dress up as. Examples could be: dressing up as the Wiggles, the Seven Dwarfs from Snow White, a group of bowling pins, really anything!
But Halloween isn’t only about dressing up! It’s about that “Trick or Treat” spirit. You cannot contain that spirit to only one night, so check out these 4 games and activities that you can do with your parents and friends to keep the spirit of the season going!
Even though your Gululu pets may not be able to dress up with you, they definitely want to be around to keep your kids hydrated while they are eating all of their Halloween sugar. Send us pictures of your little ones in their favorite costumes with their Gululu pets this Halloween!
