Food Truck Family Costumes
These costumes were fun to make out of cardboard boxes. The possibilities are endless. We let the kids choose whatever food truck the wanted. For mom and dad, I ordered aprons and hats from Amazon and used the Cricut to cut out logos for our aprons. Click below for the detailed video, materials lists, and instructions.
DIY Weather Halloween Costumes
This idea is great for older kids because it’s comfortable to wear while trick-or-treating. It’s bright and colorful too!

Monster’s Inc. DIY Family Costumes
