I always try to do a handmade Halloween costume for Noodlebug but sometimes I can't quite convince him to wear it. Last year, I made him a Prince Philip costume from "Sleeping Beauty." On Halloween night, he ended up wearing a store-bought Jack Skellington costume. Still, I figured we would get some use out of the prince costume by incorporating it into the dress-up trunk.
This month's Kiwi Crate features crafts and activities based on Medieval times. One of the activities was to make a knight helmet. (or a princess hat) We made the knight helmet for Noodlebug and he insisted on getting completely dressed up in his prince costume. I was the princess that he rescued from the dragon. A good time was had by all!!!
