My son won a prize for this costume. It is very easy to make and costs very little.

Approximate Time: About 30 minutes

Yield: 1 costumechild wearing costume

Supplies:

  • 1 white pillowcase or garbage bag. (Use caution with the garbage bag with young children!) Watch carefully while they are wearing it and dispose of it or store on a high shelf if saving it.
  • black construction paper
  • scissors
  • tape, glue, or thread
  • plastic headband

Steps:

  1. Cut a hole large enough for child's head to go through on the bag or pillowcase. Cut holes on the sides for the arms to go through as well.
  2. Cut spots and ears out of the black paper.

  6. Tape the ears to the headband. If the child's hair is long enough, you can attach the ears to a barrette and clip to the hair.
