The Lazy Mum’s Guide To: Kids Halloween Costumes

kids halloween costumes

I’m a sucker for Halloween, who doesn’t love any celebration that includes lollies and chocolate?!!! However, the dress up part I’m not that good at. I’m just not that organised! I don’t understand who has time to lovely craft a perfect Halloween Costume from things they found around the house. I don’t know how to paper mache (I barely know how to iron!) and I have better things to do than spend hours creating a Pinterest-worthy costume that she probably won’t wear. As you can see from above, last year she wore a princess dress and somehow appropriated a hat from somewhere. I’m guessing I’m not the only one- so here it is, the lazy mum’s guide to kids Halloween costumes…

For The Crazy Cat Lady
