Halloween is just around the corner, but if you are in the middle of a move, buying a costume may not top the list of your priorities. However, if you have kids that typically participate in this October tradition, you can bet all the pumpkins in the patch that it IS at the top of their priority list! So what is a parent to do when there is still a ton of moving boxes around the house needing to be unpacked and no time to go Halloween costume shopping? RNR Moving of Atlanta has an idea; use those leftover moving boxes for a DIY cardboard costume!
After a move most families tend to have an enormous amount of cardboard boxes, that in most cases can be reused. Take a moment to talk with your kids about making do it yourself cardboard costumes and decide what they want to create. While young children will need help making a costume, this is a great project to give older kids to work on independently (allowing more unpacking time for you).
The sky’s the limit with cardboard costumes, but some ideas are obviously more complex than others, and may require paint or other accessories. Below are some examples of cardboard costume ideas categorized by level of difficulty (which includes time and materials):
DIY Difficulty – Easy
DIY Difficulty – Medium
DIY Difficulty – High
