Tips for Creating Your Own
Many DIY solutions can have your child prepared for trick-or-treating or other favorite Halloween activities with minimal or maximum effort. Here are a few tips:
- Cardboard boxes can easily be painted or shaped to become a racecar, Transformer, or any number of props for children in wheelchairs.
- If you have a favorite clothing brand already, you can use those pieces with sewn/iron-on eyes, patches, and patterns to create a variety of looks.
- Start small with a cat ear headband or wig and build off of that using pieces already in your closet.
- Don’t underestimate the magic of face paint if your child is comfortable with it.
- No matter how your family chooses to dress up this Halloween, know that many options are available for all kids to enjoy.
