Do you like to make costumes for your kids, or buy them at the store? I generally like to buy them.  As much as I like originality, it’s a lot of work! When my friend Adrian was over last month, she was asking Cali what she wanted to be for Halloween. She said she didn’t know, so they went about searching the Internet for ideas. And when they stumbled upon the bowl of cereal costume from StudioDIY,  my daughter decided right then and there thats what she wanted to do!  We love cereal around here!

I may have had a few heart palpitations at the idea of pulling it together, but Adrian offered to help.Thank you Adrian! Cali was so excited.  We began the process with a giant 36 inch balloon.  Then added 4 layers of paper-mâché.  When it tried we painted it to make the bowl.

My daughter wasn’t prepared for the compliments and excitement she would receive at her school carnival from people watching her walk.  I just kept reminding her to say thank you with a smile, over and over again! I really did not feel like venturing out to the event, and planned to just have my older daughter take her. But I’m glad I got forced myself to go and watch her shine in her fruit loops costume.
