Cheap Halloween

Guest Author - Lili Pintea-Reed

Halloween can be a fun time or a parent's nightmare --simply another time to be fleeced by Big Business. I think that kids have the most fun with Halloween when it is a participatory event. They design and make their own Halloween decorations and costumes. To get them started go to:

To make a costume use things you find around the house encouraging your kid to be creative. For two years in a row, my kid was the "Leaf Ghost" ghost of fallen leaves a costume he created and painted himself...A large white maple leaf... For a Mask I covered his face in white makeup consealer and put blood red drips on his face with lipstick. No special over priced store make up needed. Makeup samples would work just as well.

What he'll be this year I'm not sure, but I'm sure it will be interesting. Try giving kids their pick of old clothes or boxes. Boxes painted silver make cool robots. One friend once took a garbage bag and then wrote on it with white masking tape "GENERIC COSTUME" which I thought was a hoot and cheap too.


SO Happy Halloween!!
