Milk and Cookies

Sweet and simple, your hardest decision will be who gets to be the milk.

 

How to do it:

Cover a large cardboard box with red construction paper, fabric or paint, and add a white strip down the middle. Use red duct tape to spell “MILK” on the white strip, and wrap blue duct tape around a wrapping paper roll before attaching to the top of the box (like a straw). For the cookies, dress in brown and attach large circular cardboard cut-outs for the cookies. Color on chocolate chips!

Football Team

We love this easy idea — you’re likely to have a lot of the props already on hand, and baby’s costume keeps him nice and warm!

 

How to do it:

Have one person play referee in a black-and-white striped shirt, and wrap the baby of the family in brown and white swaddle blankets, for the football. (If he’s old enough, you can put him in a brown long-sleeve onesie.) Dress everyone else in their favorite team’s jersey.
