We LOVE to make things at our house. October means homemade decorations and treats, and epic costumes to wow the neighbors with. My kids have made hilarious costumes and had far more fun with cardboard, duct tape, and markers than they ever did with a store-bought costume that every other kid in town is wearing too.
Last year, we made jet packs out of empty soda bottles, cardboard, spray paint, and tissue paper. From start to finish it took an afternoon and that was mostly because of the drying time for the paint. With a few weeks until the most fun night of the year, we’ve got time to choose and start making those hilarious ideas into a reality.
