Dress up your baby bump by becoming an avocado this Halloween! It’s easy! Here’s what you’ll need: a large cardboard box , dark green paint, light green paint, a box cutter, hot glue gun, ribbon, and brown paint (optional).
Take the large cardboard box and dissemble it so that it lays flat. Trace an avocado shape along the long side of it. Head to knee for length reference. Next, trace a oval around where you want your face to go through and circle for your belly. Cut out the avocado shape first, then face and belly. Time to paint! Take the light green paint and paint the entire cut out, after that’s dry, take your dark green paint and paint the outer edge of the cutout. Let that dry. Next take some ribbon and measure it around your waist (this will help the cut out stay on) and cut in half. Once your avocado cutout is finished drying, take your hot glue gun the ribbons on either side of the cutout. Optional: day-off paint your baby bump brown for the pit!
Super cute and avo-lutely adorable!
Miley’s Wrecking Ball
“I came in like a wrrrreeeeccckkkiiiinggg baaaaaallllll”
Wrecking the Halloween costume game by turning your baby bump into Miley’s wrecking ball. An easy and fun costume to rock any Halloween party or trick-or-treat adventure! What you’ll need: a black shirt, a grey cami or tank top (aluminum foil also works), scissors, a handful of paperclips, and a barbie.
Put on your black shirt and trace a circle around your belly, then cut the traced line. If you’re wearing a grey cami or tank top, put in on underneath the black shirt. BAM: there’s your wrecking ball! If you’re using alumium foil, take double sided tape and stick it on various areas on your belly. Once that is done cover your belly with aluminum foil. Create a chain necklace using paperclips. Next take your barbie and put one of her legs through the necklace and wrap her arm around the chain (she should stay up fine). BAM: a costume that Miley would be proud of.

A Rocket Ship
A baby and me costume that is out of this world! We all know you love your babykins to the moon and back, why not have them travel in style this Halloween! What you’ll need: your baby carrier, glue, grey and white construction paper, paper bowls, grey and yellow paint, ribbon (orange, red, and yellow), a black shirt, grey and yellow glitter (optional), and duck tape. Optional: Astronaut Costume.
Construct the rocket ship first. Take grey construction paper and cut out an oval shape that will be big enough to cover your baby carrier. Invite your big kid to help out with step two; take two paper bowls and paint the center of the bowl yellow and the outer rim grey. [If you’re using glitter, modge podge the center and sprinkle yellow glitter, then seal it with modge podge. Repeat with gray glitter on the outer rim.] Once the bowls are dry glue them to the construction paper, stacked one above the other. Next take your ribbon and tape them along the bottom to create the flares when rockets take off. Take left over grey construction paper to create a cone hat for baby to wear, this will be the top of the rocket ship. Cut out stars from the white construction paper.
On Halloween night put on a black shirt then the baby carrier. Apply duct tape back side of the rocket ship placing them on the top, bottom, and sides (you might want to recruit some help for this part). Next take your cone hat and put it on baby’s head. You can tape it to a layette hat to help prevent it from falling off. And the final touch, add the cut out stars onto the sleeves of you black shirt.
Make it a trio costume, get your older kid an astronaut costume so he/she can join in on the fun! Get the perfect astronaut costume here.
