Want to give your child cool costumes without pulling something off the shelf at a pop-up Halloween store? You can create unique and fun costumes without spending a ton of money; you just need to apply a little creativity. Case in point: look at Drew’s awesome costumes. He’s been Galactus from Marvel Comics, Ash from Army of Darkness, and baby dancing Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Each look is made from easy to find materials that are the kind of things you might have lying around the house such as cardboard, a plastic bucket, craft foam, and brown kraft paper (or brown paper bags). You can mix and match all of these items together with other inexpensive supplies like paint and glue and create a huge variety of costumes.
