I know its past Halloween, but I promised a “how to” on a few costumes.
Here is our cookie monster costume. We took the idea from several pictures on Pinterest. Little Engineer already had a blue dress so this idea was cheep and easy.
I went to the local craft store and bought the blue boa and the fuzzy cotton balls.
Little Engineer used a black magic marker to color eyes
Then She found paper we already had and made the cookies, gluing on the black paper for chocolate chips
I wrapped the boa around her head and used blue twisty ties (like the ones on the bread bags) to hold the circle together. I used about 3.
I then took the fuzzy cotton balls and hot glued them to the boa and to each other.
It was really that simple. Her costume cost us around $7 and it was original and cute. I loved that Little Engineer did most of it by her self, just looking at the pictures we found.
