Catherine Romano blogs about crafty projects for kids and parents


This Halloween, we are planning a party. In addition to the usual spooky-themed loot bags and creepy looking desserts, I wanted to come up with a fun activity for parents and kids. Since we love to play dress-up (and I love to take pictures), I came up with a costume booth idea.

The plan is to set up a designated area in my living room with costume pieces, a camera, and a photo printer. Since the party isn’t happening until the weekend, I asked my little boy and husband to play the part of party goers for this post.

Surprisingly, my little boy easily took on the role of a devil.

Take a look at what we did.

1. Set up the costume booth area.
2. Try on a few costumes.
3. Start snapping photos.
4. Print out the best photo, and voila, a special way to remember Halloween.

P.S. Friends, this is my final Make It! post as I am moving on to new projects. Thanks so much for reading and hope you were inspired to create art with your family. If you are feeling ambitious, here are a few of my most favourite posts:
