Reusable Halloween costume

I'm tired of buying a brand new costume every year for my daughter. Does anyone have any ideas on individual costume pieces to purchase that can be reused? She was a witch last year so we have a black wig.

We just bought our daughter a black leotard and tights. From there you can add accessories to make many different costumes...add a tail and ears to make a cat, add 8 legs to make a spider, add wings and a skirt to make a fairy...you get the picture.

I always start by going through mine and my husbands closet. This year my daughter is going to be alvin from the chimpmunks. We have an oversized red shirt of my husbands and we got a red baseball cap from walmart for a dollar. The only other thing we had to purchase was some yellow felt to cut out an A and that was less than a dollar too. We have also done grandpa with boxer shorts a white t shirt and robe (fake cigar if you have one) and an old lady. Hope this helps.

See if ur daughter would like to be a vamptress this year? Add to the black wig with simply a cape, makeup and bloody teeth..even better with a regular black dress she may already have? Or dress up a fancy dress that she may love but only wears on special occassions with wings, glitter makeup,tiara, and a wand(fairy).. just some ideas. Im a mother of 4 daughters so reusable costumes or simply pieces help alot. They've even had costumes that even after halloween, they love wearing as pajamas.. good luck!

I just saw a great article about making grocery store costumes, reusing all the bags and inexpensive items to create costumes. You may be able to just use things you have around the house: paper bags, egg cartons, cupcake cups, a mop (for a cowboy's horse) and candy (a licorice lasso!). Depending on how old your daughter is & what she wants to be, I'm sure you could pull together something crafty for very little money, and it would mostly be recyclable!

Depending on what you and your daughter wanted to achieve with her halloween costume, there are many different accessories Wal-Mart has to offer. From masks, to hats, to makeup and even some of our regular (non-seasonal) toys and accessories. One example would be if she wanted to dress up as a rock star. You could use the wig from the year before, any brightly colored clothes she has, and maybe add a festive hat and brightly colored jewlery (there is almost always something on clearance!!). Best of luck with her costume, and Happy Halloween!!!

Not too scary Halloween decorations?

I just moved to a new neighborhood that has a lot of little kids. I want to set up a haunted house for Halloween but don't want anything *too* scary. Does anyone have any ideas or products that would be ok for 3 - 5 year-olds? I found these two things--what do you think? Too scary?

I agree that the mummy might be a bit much -- especially for the Pre-K crowd.

In our neighborhood we mostly have very young children -- under age 3 -- and they don't get bothered by our spooky stuff!

It's really going to depend on the personalities of the children whether they get scared or not. I think the arch will be fine because it's not very threatening; sure there's a grim reaper but the arch doesn't move or make any scary noises and kids will be so bewildered at the size, color, lights, and noise of the air pump that they should be fine. The mummy may be a little scarier because of the eyes and the movement. Kids that young usually don't understand it's a prop and may be fearful. Your best bet in doing a haunted house for kids that young is choosing props that are interesting but not threatening. Don't pick anything that makes really scary noises or moves in a threatening or distressing manner because the kids may think it's real. Make sure your "haunted house" is well-lit with no dark scary corners. Use lots of colorful, well-lit props, like funny-faced jack-o-lanterns with multi-colored fake "candles" burning inside (much safer than a real flame), or depictions of classic "monsters" illustrated in more child-friendly styles. Jumping out and startling kids will only make it scarier; it's better to set it up more as a "tour" where they can walk through and take in the atmosphere. They'll be so entranced by everything going on that you really don't have to sweat the spooky stuff.

Here are a few examples of decorating items that would go well:
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=10543317
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=12335888
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=11974441
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=11026514
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=11974418

Give each child a reward for being brave and going through your "haunted house" to help them associate the activity with good feelings, and above all else, make it easily escapable should a guest get too scared and want out immediately. Have a happy halloween!

The arch looks cool - especially when lit up!
I am not sure about the mummy thing for kids... you might have some kids running away.

One idea is to have candy lying all over the setup. That way it will be inviting for kids even if it is scary.

You would think it would just be water, but when I looked it up here http://entertainment.howstuffworks....
it looks like fog machines take a combination of glycol and water. I'd check the manufacturer's website to be sure. If you end up in a bind, dry ice and water in a bucket is a great substitute.

There are several possible ways to go about finding a solution to your question. The first being using the "find in store" application next to the costume you are intersted in. It will prompt you to pick a size from the drop down menu, and enter your zip code (or city/state) and then you will click search. It will automatically search the inventories of your closest stores. Since the inventories aren't always updated, or may change from when they were orginally submitted (they update every 24-48 hours) the search return will also give you a UPC number for the item you are looking for. You can call your local store, ask for a sales associate or department manager in the seasonal/lawn and garden department, and they can use the UPC to search on hand stock. Both of these option will save you gas money to your store in the event that they don't have your item. If the item isn't available in stores, but the size you want is available online, you can use the site to store option and have the item shipped, for free, to your local store. I hope some of this information helps, and have a Happy Halloween!!!

On of our fast emails is with eggs, bread, cheese,stuffing mix and sausage or bacon.
first take a cake pan and spray with butter, then take 5 slices of bread and rip them up and layer them in the pan, now take a stuffing mix and pour that over the top, then cut up some pre cooked sausage or bacon and layer that on top of the bread mixture. Mix ups some egg about 6 or 8 of them and 2 cups of milk or cream pour that mixure of the mixture and top with a bag of shredded chesse .
we have this at our church meeting also.

I like whole grain breads or crackers with cheese, fruits, veggies, yogurt, etc.
By buying on sale with coupons, you can keep costs low.
Another option, if you have access to a microwave, is just to cook extra dinner and use the leftovers for lunch. It doesn't cost that much extra, and a hot meal at lunch tastes good.

Go to your local walmart and ask to speak to the store manager. They should be able to help. Most stores in our area donate more around the first of the month when the budget isn't so strained.

I have the machine also - it was a HIT at halloween....did you fill both resevoirs with liquid? I ran mine for about 4 hours halloween night and had to fill the bubble solution at least twice...never ran out of fog juice tho. Call the home office, ask to speak to the seasonal buyer...they could prob get you in touch with the supplier and they could email you or fax you actual instructions...I could send you mine, but I threw them away!
