Trunk-Or-Treat

Saturday night we had our annual Trunk-or-Treat and Chili cook-off at church.
The boys went as the Blue Man Group. Turns out-not a lot of the under-12 crowd has any clue who they are. I guess it's just the burden you have to bear if you are way cooler than all your friends.

 If you want your kids to be an obscure character for Halloween so that they can spend all night telling everyone who they are, all you need is a tube of .97  (I used 2 for all 3) blue make-up tubes from Wal-mart and swim caps. The boys refuse to tuck their ears in, so they looked a little smurfey.
Surprisingly, a lot of kids didn't know who Mary Poppins is either (we may need to move somewhere with cooler kids).   It's one of my all time favorites.   
If you want to be practically perfect in every way- Click here to see tutorials for the hat and umbrella.



For the most part, the blog is mostly about crafts, but I'm hanging out out Crayon Freckles today, talking about my life and my parenting style. Come visit.

  1. I love, love, love the Mary Poppins costume. It's on my "list" of ways to dress my daughter for upcoming trick or treats. I'm stopping over from Crayon Freckles, and I love your "shoes". I especially love your "Modest is Hottest" motto with your daughter. I think modesty is so important, and isn't emphasized enough! Have a great day!

  6. Surprisingly few adults knew who we were either. A few people thought they were the smurfs, but my favorite was when someone ask my youngest if he was supposed to be a "Blue Rapper"????

  12. I think your costumes are great...and I would have known who they were...but we did Princess Bride this year (like you did a few years ago, only mines not as good as yours) and some people had no idea who they were...but the people who did know, absolutely loved it!
