Star Wars is more than just an epic saga — it's a beloved series that guarantees wild adventures for your little one and your wallet. Look, I love Star Wars as much as the next Jedi in training, but the merchandise can be expensive and of course, your kids want it all. This Halloween, BB-8, the cutest droid ever (Sorry R2-D2), is a hot costume. But you don't need to spend too much money on one — you can get creative with an easy BB-8 costume for kids that will make them look great and feel like they actually can deliver a map to the Resistance headquarters.
If you're thinking about the logistics of creating a round BB-8 costume, I feel you. I came up with a lot of crafty ideas to create the perfect costume. But I don't have time for papier-mâché. Also, what the h*ll are you supposed to do with a giant BB-8 costume made out of papier-mâché? How will it fit through the hall? The door? Will it rot in a corner of your kid's bedroom? Will it be destroyed in two seconds?
Save the costume drama. You're going for easy here, not authentic. Your kid will still look awesome, but your fingers won't be covered in dry glue and you won't have to hunt down newspapers. (I hear there's some in the museums.)
You just need a few items to create an easy BB-8 costume for your kid and you'll be mom of the year. Get ready to trick or treat with the cutest droid ever.
