Packed with inspired ideas for the whole family, the contents of this kit plus household recyclables will yield dozens of easy-to-make, amazing costumes.

Dressing up is an excellent form of imaginative play every day of the year. And CLEVER COSTUMES offers more than 50 terrific ideas for transforming worn-out clothing and household recyclables into unique, easy-to-make kids' costumes. From fuzzy animals made out of hoodies to pirate and ninja costumes made out of re-fashioned T-shirts; to stunning plastic bag princesses and dazzling mermaids, every spectacular costume is super-cool and easy to replicate, and much more fun than the same old store-bought stuff. The kit comes with more than enough red satin for a cape, duct tape, elastic cord, and adhesive velcro closures for making dozens of traffic-stopping creations for Halloween or any old day.
