Saints – Halloween Costumes


Halloween is a great time to teach your children more about the saints – and just in time for All Saints Day on November 1st and All Souls Day on November 2nd. Instead of letting your children choose to dress up like goblins and witches, why not encourage them to dress up like a saint? Let them choose a saint and then teach them about that saint. Together research the life of the saint they have chosen. And if you have the resources, be creative and make the costume together.

Tips for Creating a CostumeBuy at Art.com

First, find pictures of the saint your child has chosen.

Go through your closets to see what you might be able to use.

For example lets say your child chose Saint Patrick (see photo to the right). If you have an old blue skirt and a white one, layer them and add gold trim to the blue one. The cape might be a little trickier, but if you have an old green coat, or jacket, you could cut the sleeves off. It won't be a “true” cape, but could work. If you are more creative, you might want to consider buying material and making the costume. Use any cane you have available. You could even glue (or otherwise attach) a snake to it. For his hat, again be creative, look to see what you have and go from there.
