Last Minute Halloween Costumes

Well, here we are with days to go and no costumes chosen yet. Here are some awesome last-minute Halloween costume ideas for all different ages!

For Babies

This cute burrito needs only red and green paper and a tortilla-colored cloth for swaddling. I imagine some aluminum foil wrapped around the bottom half would be cute, too!

More cute ideas (like a sack of potatoes or a circus strongman!) here and here.

For Toddlers

Get your hot glue gun and some pillow stuffing for this last-minute lamb costume! So cute and simple and seems easy to do.
