At our house, we have a big toy bin full of costumes and props. We all love to “play dress up” and even my husband and I will put on a silly outfit or costume just to make the kids, (and ourselves) laugh out loud. Dress up play encourages creativity and imagination in children, plus it such great fun. Some of our costumes in our toy bin are over 10 years old and have been worn and played with for years.

Life is better in costume, don’t you agree? That is why Halloween has become such a fun family affair. Be sure and take lots of photographs and frame your favorite ones. You can enjoy decorating with these Halloween photographs for years to come.

The expensive part (and stressful) part is when you wait until the last minute and have to scramble to put a costumes together and then end up paying too much.
