Making Costumes

Spend some time with your child, and enhance his creative instincts. 

Here's a great, funky costume that you can make with your kids. And which kid wouldn't enjoy colouring his clothes with a marker! There's no limit but your imagination, so let it run wild! 

You will need: 

  • An old pillowcase
  • Permanent markers in various colours
  • A 'naada' or string
  • Colourful pieces of fabric


Take a pillowcase and cut a hole at the stitched end, so your child's head can go through it. Alternatively, let your child's head remain in the pillowcase - just cut two holes for the eyes. Cut holes in the corners as well, for arms. Take a permanent marker and make some interesting designs. Or, take other pieces of cloth and staple or stick them on to the costume. 

Sew the bottom of the pillowcase so that you can run a cord through it. Pull the strings of the cord together, so it gives a gathered effect at the bottom.

It's a perfect costume for your child to wear at a fancy dress party, or a party with a spooky theme!
