When my daughter was 4, we made a lion costume out of large cardboard pieces (cut from a box) Two pieces were cut in the shape of the animal with enough length to come below her knees and leave the feet free for easier walking. We tied the pieces together over her shoulders with yarn. Painted the body design with acrylic paints, added a yarn tail, and use face paints. Cost....about $5.00 for the paint and yarn, and fun making it together!

There is a template for an owl mask at http://www.marthastewart.com/portal ... 00003d370a0aRCRD&autonomy_kw=owl

Click on the colored word "owl" to download the template.

Sounds like fun! Toni

I made a bird costume for DD when she was 2. You could adapt this to any bird, including an owl. I took a hat of hers (cheapy) and crocheted big eyes and a beak and sewed it to her hat. You could make the eyes and beak from felt if you cannot crochet. Then for the wings, I took a matching sweatshirt and glued feathers to the sleeves, and the top of the hat.

Boxes make great costumes! Cut holes for the head and arms and leave the bottom open, then you can paint it to be a die {if he has a friend they can be a pair of dice} a Rubik cube, a wrapped present, a lego, a block, almost anything square. Or you can get a cheap poster board and hang it over his neck and paint it to look like a domino, a playing card, or a remote. One of my favorite costumes as a kids was a bunch of grapes! Take a green or purple sweat suit or any cloths that are those colors buy green or purple balloons to match, blow them up and pin the knot of the balloon to the clothes!

One year my thrifty grandma had us be piles of leaves by attaching leaves found outside to a garbage bag and hat. I was just in my local salvation army and saw a bunch of costumes and clothes that could be uses as costumes...a fancy dress with a crown can become a princess or an old flannel shirt and jeans with some hay and become a scare crow. Use your imagination there are so many possibilities. :)
