Costume Box

Encourage the kids to use their imaginations when celebrating Halloween with their friends. Just provide them with dress-up selections and let them put together their own creative costumes!


  • Variety of clothing articles, such as scarves, hats, gloves, shoes, vests, wraps, fancy dresses, ruffly shirts and silky pants
  • Mirror


  • Lay out dress-up clothes in the middle of the play-room.
  • Let the kids choose whatever they want to put on and create a Halloween costume.
  • Keep a full-length mirror handy so the kids can see how they look as they try on different outfits and accessories.
  • When the kids are ready, ask them to talk about their costumes.
  • Have a parade around the room, house, or yard.
  • Videotape the kids for added fun and play back the video. (You might want to send home pictures of the kids so their parents can enjoy them, too.)
