Moving Boxes = Cool Halloween Costumes

Do you have old moving boxes in your garage or storage room? Or large boxes from recent online purchases? Have a little fun with your kids (or for yourself) and make some DIY Halloween costumes.

When I was a kid, we made a Rubik’s Cube. Only thing was that the box was too low and not cut up the side which led to a tumble down the stairs. There are some really cool ideas out there that you can make out of recycled cardboard and can keep you warm on a cool Halloween night.

1. Hand Sanitizer
