Why not do characters from the Wizard of Oz - you could be the good witch, bad witch, or Dorothy. Callum can be the scarecrow or tin man. My sis did this one year and it was adorable! My 2-year old refuses to wear a costume, it scares him so much. I can't even go down the candy aisle at the grocery store. We returned both costumes we bought for him. Luckily, I found him an orange t-shirt and in black writing it says, "I don't do costumes".

I tell people I have the easiest costume in the world and I wear it everyday. I'm a MUMMY!

So, enough of my silliness. For those of you who need an easy costume why not be a bag of jelly beans? Clear garbage bag with holes cut for your legs then fill with dollar store balloons. Or you can be a bunch of grapes. Wear green t shirt and tights and stick purple balloons all over yourself.

Best costume I ever saw was the kid who dressed up as a toilet. He'd open the lid for you to toss in the candy. I loved that one.

The area I'm in now doesn't allow kids to trick or treat at all. They all go to church, home or recreation center parties.

The first year I was here, I literally bought a ton of candy and not a single trick or treater...

I usually stay home on Halloween. Since I live in a Condo we only get the kids that live here. We don't let in strangers who buzz us on our intercoms.

I usually keep wrapped for them and they are happy.

Yep, I read GB's post about this costume and it's hilarious! Just get a bag of cotton balls and some glue. I dont usually dress up, I just give out the candy. Daughter is 15, so our days of trick-or-treating are sadly no longer. It's fun to watch the kids come to the door all dressed up. I hardly ever see kids using pillow cases to carry their candy. I used pillow cases and had lots of candy.
