Halloween: Book Costumes and Other Fun

A friend of mine crafted this typewriter (to attach to a cow costume) out of a Cheerios box! Her six-year-old was definitely the cutest union member of Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type (by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin).

I love seeing little Halloween costumes based on book characters! Last year, Baby A was Gossie. And I can't decide what she'll be this year--Peter Rabbit? Pooh? Clifford/Emily Elizabeth? Or a fluffy monster? Time is running out! What are your costuming plans? Did you prepare weeks ago, or do you wait until the week before (like me)? I have been pinning book character costume ideas, if you still need them.

Our favorite Halloween book this year has been Little Goblins Ten by Pamela Jane, illustrated  by Jane Manning. The lyrics come off charmingly without ever trying to "force" a rhyme. It's a counting book, without feeling predictable. And the illustrations are part-lovely and part-creepy--definitely not too scary, but not cutesy, either.

My husband, 2.3-year-old, and I went to see Hotel Transylvania, and we were surprised at how much we all liked it! Next week, we'll be screening the classic It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

What are your Halloween traditions? Or are you trying something new this year?
