What should baby Bargain Babe dress up as for Halloween this year? There is still time to suggest an idea to win! We will take the best idea and that is what Lucy will dress up as for Halloween!! So far…
Scarecrow: Use an old flannel shirt with holes in it, old ragged jeans, and a straw hat, and then tie or stitch a bit of decorative straw-colored raffia to the shirt and pants openings.
Mummy: Attach ragged strips of cloth ripped from an old white sheet to a white T-shirt and pants. Or wrap the child lightly in surgical gauze if you find some on sale or at the dollar store.
Oooh”¦ Maybe use these items from your list:
Small yellow, fuzzy basket with the face of a baby chick on it
Purple and white tutu
Pink ballet slippers with matching tutu
And dress her up as a cute little Easter Bunny for Halloween The outfit part could easily be a fuzzy fleece pajama set, and it’s not too difficult to sew a bonnet with bunny ears (or use a hat that stays on and add ears to that!)
Diane has a wicked idea:
Borrowing from Michele Simon’s idea from last year, you and your husband could be the pregnant nun and priest, respectively, and you could dress Lucy in a cute devil costume.
EllieD shares this one:
For one of our neighborhood Halloween kids’ parades, a couple dressed as chefs and dressed their wee one as a little lobster, which they carried in an outsized cooking pot! It was absolutely adorable, simple to do, and won a prize! Plus they didn’t have to worry about the wee one crawling all over the place! Another family dressed as pirates”¦ very cute.
