DIY No-Sew Olaf Costume

There is no doubt that neighborhoods will be filled to the brim with Frozen royalty this Halloween. No hood will be lacking in Queen Elsas or Princess Annas. And if you’re a big Frozen fan but are looking for something a little less expected, then maybe you should consider an Olaf costume for your Disney Baby! It’s also a perfect sibling costume if your other little wants to go as Elsa or Anna. I’m not a particularly crafty mama…actually…not really crafty at all, but this costume couldn’t be easier! All you need are a few items (many of which you may already have!), about 30 minutes, and zero sewing skills. So, let’s build a snowman!

Our First Family Halloween

 

For our first Halloween with my son, Aarlen, I thought it would be fun to start the tradition of doing family costumes. My daughter, Naliya, wanted to be Doc McStuffins, and it was the perfect choice since there were enough characters to create both parent and child costumes.

My Halloween Dilemma: Should We Do a Family Costume?

Now that we are a family of four, I feel like the pressure is on to go “all out” for our Halloween costumes. We’ve got two adorable little boys who would look cute even dressed as paper sacks… but Mommy and Daddy would look silly.

My dilemma is this: Should we dress all alike as a theme? Or should we dress as individuals in whatever we like the most?

5 Fun 'Dia de Muertos' Crafts for Toddlers

Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Muertos, is a colorful holiday primarily celebrated in Mexico as a way to remember and celebrate those that have passed away. Lately, it has become even more popular in the United States. Although my family (from Colombia) never celebrated this holiday, I think it’s great for my son to learn about different cultures and traditions.
