kids halloween costumes
The other night I was watching an episode of a reality competition game show on NBC hosted by Nick Offerman and Amy Poehler called "Making It."  The television show pits contestants against one another in challenges which have them make a variety of handmade projects which are judged so that each episode someone is kicked off the show until eventually only the most crafty person is left to ultimately win a prize. My interest was really captured because this episode of Making It was themed around one of my favorite times of the year, Halloween, and its contestants were tasked with creating diy costumes that would be fitting to wear to a holiday party.

With Halloween costumes on my mind, I started wondering about diy ideas for my own kids. So I reached out to my friends at Wholesale Halloween Costumes for suggestions.  Wow!
