School starts for us soon and I figured I should share a fun school oriented idea today. Of course, costume season is gearing up, so I figured out a way to combine schools and costumes with a round up of DIY book character costumes!! Luckily our school allows the kids to dress up for Halloween with very little restrictions other than banning gore and weapons. I know some schools only allow students to dress up if they represent a storybook character. That may seem limited but there really are still a lot of fun costume ideas focused on book characters! There are lots of awesome ideas in some of their favorite book series. Quinn is totally into the Creature in the Closet books , so I created two fun costumes from that book series!
