Madeline Home-Made Costume

Halloween is pretty much my favorite day of the year! I LOVE coming up with cute costumes and figuring out a way to make them myself, almost always out of butcher paper.  A costume parade has become a tradition for all the schools where I’ve worked.  It has changed over the years from just costumes to a storybook character parade.

When my AP said she had a nun costume, I immediately suggested that Madeline would be a storybook to model our team after!! There aren’t 12 of us in the office, but I was sure it would work.  I’m pretty sure I was right!!

Our capes were made out of a blue plastic table cloth, white plastic table cloth and a ribbon all stapled together.  The hat was made of yellow butcher paper taped around the head, rolled up and a black ribbon tied around it, (see picture below to see how we wrapped the hat with tape.) We all wore black dresses, white socks and black shoes.  Voila! An awesome group costume!! What do you think!?IMG_0598.JPG

Butcher paper costumes!

One of my favorite things we do at my school is our annual costume parade!  Every year, our office dresses up in home-made costumes and marches through the halls with the rest of the kids in the school.  The younger students are on parade while the older students pass out candy to them.  Everyone has a great time and the parents even join in the fun!  This year’s costume was one of the easiest to make.  All we used was butcher paper, glue and yarn! We did all of this without patterns or even trying to draw it first.  I can also tell you this is one of the best parades we ever had.  Almost all the kids dressed up and brought candy! It was big fun for all!

The play-doh’s were home made from butcher paper also!
