Sure, stores are stocked with intricate, exciting Halloween costumes during this time of year. But there's nothing like the feeling of pride you get by wearing a homemade costume. Fortunately, a company has brought together the best of both worlds with these children's DIY costume kits. Now your child can experience the joy of a handmade Halloween costume, even if you're not a crafter on Pinterest.
KiwiCo creatives invented "Build Your Own" Halloween costumes just in time for Halloween. Retailing from $ 10 to $ 45, each kit contains everything your child needs to create a Halloween costume or piece of furniture. As an added bonus, each costume has a working mechanical or electronic component, so your child gets a mini STEM lesson while making a costume. It is the perfect blend of creative expression and practical lessons.
Also, there are a lot of different costume ideas for kids of all ages. The younger set can have fun decorating their Trick-or-Treat bags or simple costumes, while the older ones can have fun with the mechanical moving parts and the work lights. In addition, all costumes are made elegantly, so they will appear in all your Halloween photos. Whatever your baby is, it's probably a costume they'll love from KiwiCo.
