A Crafty No-Sew Halloween Costume Making for Kids
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us for a crafty DIY afternoon to design and make your own Halloween costume using just humble, craft materials, cardboard boxes, some good old fashioned elbow grease and a blast of imagination. Best of all, there’s no sewing involved!
This workshop is designed for 5 to 8 year olds and to be accompanied by a parent. Please indicate your child’s age and competency with tools at the time of sign up. If your child is outside of the age range but you really want to do the workshop, let us know.
We’ll supply the materials, glue, tools and boxes you’ll need to make one of these “characters"
- Ice cream cone
- Weather cloud
- Minecraft Steve
If you have a simple idea for your costume that doesn’t require sewing, bring that picture along (could be a sketch or picture or book) and instructor Michele will help you construct!
As a finale, we’ll all work together to make a scenic backdrop and take some photos of you to share with friends and family!
Some of the skills and takeaway from this workshop includes
- imagination (tons of it at work!)
- story-telling (how your character works with the backdrop, the beginning of a set build for theatre)
- confidence in public speaking (show-and-tell who your character is)
- valuable parent & child bonding time!
