Coming up with a Halloween costume can be tricky, especially without spending a lot of money. Some of our favorite Halloween costumes over the years have been ones that our children and I made together. One of my most memorable was making a robot costume out of a cardboard box, aluminum foil and flexible shiny dryer vent tubing.
Our About.com guides have come up with literally hundreds of costumes you can make at home. With a little creativity and a little time, you can find and make a great costume for and with your kids.
