It’s also a good idea to have a “blogroll” on your blog site. This is basically a list of related blogs that you feel will help your readers. When you link to other blogs this way, they will see it and often will link back to your blog. This can help to widen your audience by reaching readers on other blogs. Just make sure the blogs you link to are related to the subject of yours.
My son used this costume last year as a kindergartener and he was the talk of the school! This costume can be put together in just a few moments, provided you blow up the balloons ahead of time. Directions can be found here .
The Tulip Fairy Infant/Toddler Costume – This theme is designed along the lines of a tulip flower and is pink in color. It also has a petal headpiece.
To be honest, this costume can be whipped up last-minute. Taking about an hour or so to complete once you have the materials. First you will cut the sleeves off of an old flannel shirt (even if it isn’t the right size for your little one it could work) and have your child put on a long-sleeve thermal shirt under it. Strap on the tool belt, adding in either the real-deal or toy tools. Smudging the brown paint onto the shirt and face; along with the tools and gloved hands. Have your child put on the remaining items, and your ready to go door-to-door for some goodies!
Use cardboard to make a throne backing for the wheelchair. Use gold and red paints to decorate the throne, including cardboard front and sides around the wheelchair. Dress your child as a king or queen complete with crown and scepter. (If a parent or attendant goes with the trick-or-treat, they can dress as the court jester or a page to serve the King or Queen.) For a twist go as King Neptune by decorating the throne with seashells and plastic fish and holding a trident.
The main exhibit going on right now is called To the Rescue! This is an original safety exhibit that helps kids learn what it’s like to be a rescue worker. They have the Lil’ Red Fire Truck #5 and the Rescue helicopter that come with costumes for kids to play in. You can also stop by the Fire Safety House to play a safety game of Tic-Tac-Toe. Another fun part to check out is the To the Rescue Med Center where kids can pretend to be paramedics and even practice giving first aid to their puppet “patients”. There are lots of cool toys to play with like sirens, stethoscopes, bandages and even life rafts!
Imagine the laughter and fun as your child goes trick or treating saying “Me want Cookie” or “Me want candy” as his Sesame Street counterpart might say.
