Popcorn Costume
Ages preschooler

Introduce your little kernels to the joys of corny crafts this Halloween with this Popcorn costume they can help make themselves.

What you'll need

  • Cardboard box (big enough to cover body of child)
  • Box cutter or serrated knife
  • Wide masking tape
  • Picture of popcorn
  • Red duct tape
  • White duct tape
  • Glue
  • 1 piece of white construction paper
  • 1 piece of yellow construction paper
  • Red and yellow markers
  • Popped popcorn
  • Red long-sleeve shirt and brown pants
  • Yellow visor (optional)
Helpful Tip:

1. It's wise to pencil on the "Hot Buttered Popcorn" before writing it in pen. If you have the right software, a good alternative is to print the words and the oval out from your computer. 2. Not a lot of real popcorn is required for gluing on the box top. Cheese-flavored popcorn is yellower than other types and looks more like buttered popcorn.

How to make it

  1. An adult should cut holes big enough for the arms and head of the child. Remove the bottom of the box for the legs.

  2. Tape sides of box closed with masking tape. Cover any sharp edges with tape as well.

  3. Print out multiple photos of popcorn and cut off any excess white border.

  4. Wrinkle the photos and glue or tape to top of box around head hole at the top of the box.

  5. Wrap paper edges with duct tape. Where tape overlaps armholes, cut darts and wrap tape through arm holes to inside of box.

  6. Use red and white duct tape to create vertical stripes, starting at bottom of box and taping toward top. Let tape extend about 5" beyond top edge of box and fold excess back onto itself. Trim folded over tape into triangle.

  7. Cut out a white oval and a slightly larger yellow oval. Write "Hot Buttered Popcorn" on white oval. Glue yellow oval to front of box first, then white oval.

  8. Hot glue some popped popcorn to the top of the box.

  9. Finish the look off by adding a yellow visor, red top, and brown pants.
