Sorry for the very short blog today but I wanted to get it up on the Web as soon as possible for parents (like me) who will be frantically helping their kids dress for Halloween Trick or Treating in a few hours.
The little ones were easy. We bought a Dora outfit for the 3-year-old and a car-something or other for the 2-year-old. It’s the 10 to 14 year olds that are the problem. They think they’re too old for a bought costume but they want to dress up AND look cool. So….late last night I found this website: www.costumeideazone.com
Look under the "Quick and Easy" section and you’ll be set.
My 13-year-old boy picked the “Mastercard” one. I printed out a sheet that reads:
Costume requiring minimal effort: Priceless
We pinned it to his shirt front and back and he was set. He also liked the Eminem, the rapper one. And I thought for a girl and boy going out together the “E-male and Attachment” was pretty quick and clever.
I’m doing the standard witch…the kids say I don’t have to dress up for it! — Aren’t they sweet when they become teenagers????
See you tomorrow.
