Easy Halloween Costumes

I don't know about your house, in my house, deciding on a Halloween costume is torturous.  My boys really don't enjoy dressing up. But since they both still have Halloween parades at their schools, dressing up is expected.

I do not like spending a lot of money on costumes anymore. When they were younger and I picked the costume, I spent the money. But now I'm older, wiser, and don't want to spend buckets of money on overpriced costumes for what amounts to about 4 hours of wearing the costume.

I'm all about simple costumes. Wordplay costumes are my favorite. Below are some of my favorites:

FOR KIDS:

~ Dress in pink and carry a feather ... You are tickled pink.
