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
Supplies Needed: Toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll) blue cardboard, white and pink paint, hot glue gun, tape, box cutter.
2. Rubix Cube
Supplies Needed: Construction or poster board paper, electrical tape, glue (if needed). Instead of keeping each side the same colour, cut the paper out in squares and glue/tape on.
