So, my nine year old and I could not come up with anything good for his Halloween costume this year. Star Wars, done. Harry Potter, done. General Skeleton, Frankenstein monster options, done.
But what about Diary of a Wimpy Kid? Well, dressing up as Greg Heffley wouldn’t really work — a kid with a back pack, yawn, no thanks.
But, what about the star of the first book? What about the Cheese Touch?
Our inspiration came from here:
It was a fun project to work on. We got foam board, yellow paint, black permanent markers, plastic bugs, glitter glue, crayons and even yarn. We also got a head band and some felt stick-on letters. Oh yeah, and some moldy-colored duct tape.
It took us a couple nights of decorating and gluing, but I think we did a pretty rad job. AND it was original.
Here was the outcome.
(Oh and I swear he was more jazzed about his costume than it looks like in this picture. He was just mad I was taking pictures here and not taking him trick-or-treating…)
