Homemade Halloween Costumes for Kids

On the prowl for easy Halloween costumes? Look no further. All you need for the base of these cute animal costumes is a pair of sweatpants and a matching hooded sweatshirt. With just a few craft store additions, you’ve put together a fun and easy Halloween costume. And, best of all, your kids can wear the sweatshirt and sweatpants again later—sans accessories—thanks to some ever-so-practical safety pins.
