Frugal Halloween Costumes - Ideas With Overalls

 

Overalls:

Paul Bunyan/lumberjack-add a flannel shirt, boots, and a plastic fireman's axe (from a dress-up set). Blue oxes are pretty hard to find, but you could use a blue stuffed animal. Add a black cap for that Canadian lumberjack look.


Farmer -overalls, galoshes, straw hat, flannel shirt. Could carry a stuffed farm animal, plastic pitchfork or toy tractor.

 

Scarecrow-such as cute look for little kids! Same as farmer, except paint a red triangle on your child's nose and attach raffia to the cuffs of the sleeves and pants. I simply tied the raffia around my child's wrists and ankles. This was one of the cutest, easiest costumes we ever did, and Beau did not mind the painted nose.

 

Sports Uniforms:

Athlete-dress up your kids in their sports uniforms and let them go as a famous baseball/football/basketball/hockey player. They could also borrow an older sibling's sports uniform.

 

Pajamas- Whenever my kids get new pajamas, we make sure to get the superhero kind that can double as Halloween costumes. Easy, and you don't have to change them for bedtime, after they have passed out from exhaustion and have come down from their sugar high!
