DIY-costumes-for-kidsIf you’re anything like me, you start thinking about Halloween Costumes about a week before Halloween.  Certainly not far enough ahead to make a large getup or super fancy costume, but you still want to help your kids have the best costumes they could imagine, right?  This is where Pinterest comes in really handy!  Give me Pinterest and about three nap times and I can whip up a pretty mean costume!  To make things easier for YOU, I’ve rounded up 25 amazing DIY Halloween Costumes that can be made in just a few nap times!
