I am determined to put my kids in coordinating Halloween costumes until the time comes when they refuse to do such things.
Last year they were Batman and Robin :)
This year, big brother said he wanted to be a fireman for Halloween so that immediately meant that little brother was to be his fire dog :) Conveniently we already had a fireman outfit in our dress up bin so I only needed to purchase a dalmation costume for my little guy. I toyed with thought of DIYing it with a crochet hat and white shirt with felt spots....but then I saw a super cute little plush dalmatian puppy costume at Pottery Barn Kids and I couldn't resist!
Now we needed a fire truck! Their two-seater wagon was the perfect canvas. I used a large cardboard box and cut it up into two truck shapes for either side. I used scrap pieces to make the ladder. Big brother helped paint everything. I used chalkboard contact paper for the black hose and printed out a fire department logo to make it official :)
They got in costume yesterday and took their truck out for a test drive! With all the rain, there were no fires to fight, but they make a good team! They are more than ready for an evening of trick or treating :)
