Come-Clean Washing Machine

Kids can't resist airing their family's dirty laundry in a cool appliance that's loads of fun to wear. To start, all you need is a cardboard box, white Con-Tact paper, packing tape and cutting tools. Before taking this costume for a spin, be sure to incorporate the clear plastic plate (just ask your grocery store's deli counter for one) and some laundry -- clean, of course.

Halloween Costume

Ham & Cheese Sandwich

To serve up a costume that will make taste buds water, all you'll need is a quick trip to the fabric store. Materials include 2-inch-thick white upholstery foam pads, brown and green acrylic paints, craft foam, pipe cleaners, green vinyl mesh (also called waffle), and, of course, a wooden dowel and blue cellophane for the fancy toothpick at the top of the head.

Halloween Costume

King of the (Asphalt) Jungle

Your kids are sure to go ape for this famous gorilla, complete with a building perch and pint-size damsel in distress. To make the building: seal one end of the box with masking tape and then paint. For the gorilla, you'll need a black hooded sweatshirt, about 3 feet of shaggy black fur fabric sold at fabric stores for about $15 a yard, and a gorilla mask, which you can find at party stores. Don't forget the damsel in distress. Barbie will do just fine.
