10 Brilliant Food-Inspired Kids Halloween Costumes Slideshow
October 9, 2012
A maroon shirt, white overalls, and some orange body paint — or dare we say bronzer — will turn your toddler into an oompa loompa in minutes. Spray-paint their hair green and stuff their pockets with Wonka candy and they’ll be ready to go.
Morton Salt Girl
This is a great parent and child costume that’s super easy to make. Nothing is cuter than or as iconic as the Morton Salt girl. As for you dad or mom — ouch.
Spaghetti and Meatballs
Don’t you want to eat this up? Us, too. Yarn, felt, and a bowl with a cutout in the middle are the key to this adorable and delicious spaghetti and meatballs costume.
This one is super inventive. If you have other kids in tow while trick-or-treating, put your baby in the carrier and create some carnival fare with a little felt, a bowtie, and yes, popcorn kernels.
This costume is ideal for a toddler because it looks even cuter when they’re crawling. Create a shell from felt and a onesie and fill it with "greens, cheese, and tomato" felt fixings to create some fantastic Mexican food.
Another creative concept, this one is for the sandwich loving family — a BLT. Perfect for a larger family, easy to make, and it will also be helpful if you lose your kids in a crowd. You know you don’t have everyone if the sandwich isn't complete.
Cotton balls, a cone, and some pink airbrushing — that’s all it takes to go from a girl to a sweet treat.
Great for the kid with a sweet tooth, this costume requires a clear bag and some colorful balloons. That is all.
