DIY Halloween costumes for Chicago kids

Superheroes are super fun!

Being able to create Halloween costumes my children love and have a part in making is such a great feeling. For these three costumes, I went straight to PBS for inspiration.


Luckily, two of the costumes had instructions for me, so all I had to do was take my list of supplies and buy felt and Velcro. Thanks to Caroline Gravino Urdaneta of Salsa Pie for the great instructions for both the Super Why and Word Girl costumes (modeled by my twins Penelope and Zachary).



Word Girl



Super Why


The D.W. costume worn by my daughter Jessica is just from looking at countless hours of Arthur, and consists of a long sleeve white shirt, white tights, Mary Janes, a pink jumper, and Aardvark ears hot glued onto a headband. Don't forget a stuffed cow to carry since D.W. is Mary Moo Cow's biggest fan!
