Coolest Cardboard Halloween Costumes For Kids

Halloween is on its way and I am sure costume ideas are on the back of your mind. There are few reasons why I love cardboard Halloween costumes. 

1. They are cheap to make.

2. It’s better for the environment.

3. They are DIY so they are super original. The best part – you can customize just the way your child likes it. In fact, you can make it together.

4. Most Halloween costumes made from cardboard don’t require a lot of hard and sweaty labor. Cutting, gluing and coloring.
