I get it. Halloween isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. But most kids adore this holiday like crazy! And you can totally make their day by joining the festivities — even in the tiniest of ways. I made this video with 6 ideas that are perfect for the costume averse among us. They’re easy, not-messy, and inexpensive. You can dress normally, then add or subtract these ideas as you move from work to errands to the school Halloween parade. Enjoy!

I’d love to hear: Do you embrace dressing up on Halloween? Or were you delighted to leave it behind when you graduated from trick-or-treating?

P.S. — You can find all the videos in the Celebrations with Design Mom series here.
