I could surely state that Halloween has been one of the most celebrated events of the year since my son turned 4 in my family. We never once purchased a cosume in a store and we always make them at home. The kids are happy to participate and we always get a lot of praise. Sharing some of the past costumes and DYI costume ideas for kids.
