A duck-shaped pool float left over from the summer can be worn as an over-sized bath toy. Add some white balloons for the bubbles, and you have yourself a bubble bath!
Raining Cats and Dogs
Some of the best Halloween costumes come from a play on words. Have your child help you cut out cat and dog shapes and then glue or tape them to an umbrella. Rain boots and a raincoat will complete the picture.
The Black Cat
If your kid is interested in taking a traditionally spooky route, the black cat is a quick and easy option. Make your own cat ears with some construction paper and a headband, or buy an inexpensive tail and ears set at the store. With ears and tail, all your child needs is a black outfit and some whiskers drawn on with face paint or eyeliner.
