Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2018 -- As the daycare located in Germantown that's centered around early childhood education, Germantown Day School is dedicated to enriching the lives of its students through learning experiences and a multifaceted curriculum. Now, the school is offering tips on making DIY Halloween costumes for its children and their families.

Germantown Day School understands that dressing up and getting free candy are among the best elements of Halloween. Regardless of whether they want to be scary, funny, or weird, children can have fun personalizing easy-to-make costumes. And since many are made from everyday household items, it makes for an affordable and simple way to enjoy the excitement and allow children to express their creative sides.

For instance, a wide variety of costumes can be made using an ordinary cardboard box. By cutting holes for the arms and head, this box can be colored and serves as the basis for several clever costume ideas. By adding colored paper and gluing cut out designs, children can transform into dice, a gift, a Rubik's cube, or even a deck of cards. With the right amount of ingenuity, the possibilities are endless.

Another common household item that can create many costume possibilities is tinfoil. Ninja weapons can be made using cardboard tubes covered in the versatile material, and of course, the classic robot costume can be built by utilizing a cardboard box, some dryer vents, and glue.

With some resourcefulness, creativity, and imagination, any child can instantly transform into the perfect Halloween character. And no matter which costume they wear this year, Germantown Day School would like to wish all of its students a safe, fun, and candy-filled Halloween.
