 Okay so we are really really tight on money this year and I cant afford halloween costumes for my 3 kids. I looked at walmart and the cheapest costumes were like $15 apiece but that adds up with 3 kids. So does anyone have any ideas of costumes I could do that woud be really cheap or even using items that I might have around the house? I have a 5 yr old son, 3 1/2 year old daughter, and 2 year old daughter.

Scarecrow: Over sized flannel shirt, faded blue jeans with patches, rope for belt and to tie at the cuffs of his jeans and sleeves, stuff the shirt and jeans with plastic grocery, or paper, a little bit of straw to hang out of jeans and shirt. Add a little bit of make-up.

Mummy
Wrap yourself in white bandages (rolls of gauze) Use splotches of green paint for "mold". Use white make-up on face with "age lines" drawn on. The stiff-legged gait works perfectly. From: Chris

Do you have a once upon a child? They have some you just need to go early, best to go now or late September.

Pirate
Form a fake aooden leg by wrapping your bad one in brown felt. Wear sailor pants or jeans with a striped top. Tie a bandana around your head, wear an eye patch, carry an empty bottle marked XXX (for the "rum") and mutter "aargh" a lot. Ask for "Trick or treat, matey!" From: Chris

I didn't think of checking at goodwill. I will have to do that. Ours doesn't usually have very much stuff that is good but occasionally I will find something.
