Sure, stores are stocked with intricate, exciting Halloween costumes this time of year. But there's nothing like the feeling of pride you get from wearing a homemade costume. Thankfully, one company has brought together the best of both worlds with these DIY costume kits for kids. Now your child can experience the joy of a handmade Halloween costume, even if you aren't a Pinterest-level crafter.
The creative people at KiwiCo came up with the "Build Your Own" Halloween costume kits right in time for Halloween. Retailing from $10 to $45, each kit contains everything your kid needs to craft a cool costume or piece of Halloween decor. As an added bonus, every costume has a working mechanical or electronic component, so your kid gets a mini STEM lesson while making a costume. It's the perfect blend of creative expression and practical lessons.
Plus, there are a ton of different costume ideas for kids of all ages. The younger set can enjoy decorating their own Trick-or-Treat bags or simple costumes, whereas older kids can go all out with mechanical moving parts and working lights. In addition, all the costumes are stylishly made, so they'll pop in all your Halloween photos. Whatever your kid's into, there's likely a costume kit that they'll love from KiwiCo.
