I always took my babies trick or treating for Halloween. Even though the concept of going door to door was lost on them, there were always friends with older kids that we would tag along with and, um, CANDY!
Pricey Halloween costumes and buntings are tempting, but not very practical since your baby will only wear it for one day. That's why some of the best baby and infant Halloween costumes are the ones you can make yourself -- from clothes you already have. Read on for 5 easy do-it-yourself Halloween costumes and save your money for the good candy.
Sporty Sport: Are you into football, baseball, or soccer? Dress your baby in your favorite team's jersey and a pair of solid-colored sweat pants or leggings. Throw on a baseball hat, add a bit of black makeup under the eyes for your quarterback, or pull up some knee socks for the soccer forward and you've got a complete look.
Your Little Animal: A hooded sweatshirt can be used to make a quick and easy animal costume. You can make pig, cat, or dog ears out of fabric and sew them onto the hood. For those of us not-so-crafty moms, you can always take construction paper and glue ears onto a headband.
