Think Inside The Box To Make A Costume

It's time for costumes and what could be easier than making one with a simple box?

We found some really great ideas out there using discarded boxes. It's a great way to practice the "R's", recycle and reuse.
Here are our picks:

The Hot Air Balloon.  You can also make one with a single helium balloon. ( A Large balloon for a kid, a weather balloon for an adult)
Houses of any kind! Play House, Bird House, Dog House, Your House
The I pod, why not an Ipad, TV, Radio, Computer? 
The Lego.  There are loads of variations on this.  Use large bottle caps instead of cups, a large plastic container painted yellow to be a Lego People. 
Robots. You can use a slew of recycled materials for this one.  Bottle caps, cups, cans, etc. 
The Vehicle Costume.  You can be any of the following: School Buses, truck, car, plane, race car, etc. For a school bus carry a lunch bag!

Your favorite product!  I love the crayon box.  But you can also be a toy, a cereal, a juice box, your favorite food package.
Rubics Cube.  This one is for two.  You can make a single one person cube also.

Clever and timely, too!  A Ballot Box. Do this election or a past historical one...why not run yourself!


Love these ideas, too.  Great tutorial!
