Well, guys, we have about a week and a half before it’s time for trick or treating, so I’m going to bring you a few posts on Halloween fun! The first is, of course, costumes! I thought it would be fun to Gourmet it up and check out all of the fun food costumes you can dress your little ones in – and don’t worry, there’s a role for you, too!
The first one is so genius I really wish I could take credit for it, but alas, I must give Gillian Ferguson credit for this one. Perfect for the really little guys because there’s a built-in tot-tote, too!
Mom or Dad gets to play my favorite two roles – parent and chef! Grown ups dress as the chef and baby gets to be the lobster… in a pot! You could also go with a shrimp, a crawfish, a cow… use your best sense of creativity and humor! You can always let the little ones turn the tables – YOU dress as the crustacean and let them go as the chef! (check out Martha Stewart for instructions on a homemade lobster costume).
Peas in a Pod
This is always a super cute costume, especially for twins! Thanks to Parenting.com for easy instructions on how to make this one at home (http://www.parenting.com/article/pea-in-a-pod-21355172)
Why Did the Chicken…
Dress your kiddo as the kitchen’s favorite feathered friend, the chicken!
A Sweet Treat
The kids may not always get along, but Halloween is all about pretending, right? Give peace a try with this adorable milk and cookie pairs costume!
Spaghetti and Meatballs
This one’s a McDermott original! T and I dressed Hattie up as this pasta dish last year and thought she looked delicously adorable! We dressed Finn as another favorite food as well. You can see a tutorial and their costumes on Tori’s site here.
