We went Trick or Treating last night and were surprised that there just wasn’t many kids out this year. Every year it seems to get less and less. My son went as either The Crocodile Hunter or Nigel Marvin from Prehistoric Park (he changed his mind depending on his mood.)

Every year, I make my kid’s costumes and this year, my son choose a crocodile hunter costume! I found him a khaki shirt in the Men’s clearance section at Kohls and he already had a pair of khaki shorts.  For shoes, he wore his construction style boots and I actually had the hat too! The crocodile was made from a large piece of foam. I simply drew the crocodile in a u-shape so that it would go around his neck. Then I made legs and cut a slit to slide them through. For eyes you can cut holes, or use styrofoam balls. Then just spray paint the hole thing green! Here is a link to the pattern I used:

The crocodile was originally used a number of years ago when my son was only three and we dressed him as Peter Pan. My middle daughter was Wendy and their cousin was Captain Hook. I made the crocodile for my husband to wear around his neck.


My middle daughter went as a Cowgirl (you can see the boot in her hand). I never was able to get a good picture of her. This costume was so easy to put together. She wore a flannel shirt we bought at a second hand store and a pair of her own jeans. She added boots and put in hair in a braid.


My older daughter and her friends went as Blue’s Clues. My daughter even made her own handy dandy notebook! I made her green shirt by taping stripes on a men’s green collared shirt and then painting lighter green stripes.


I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween!
