Beanie Baby Halloween Costume

Time: 30 minutes to 1 hour

Effort: Quick and easy — no sewing required


  • Sleeper in an animal print
  • Socks to match sleeper
  • White poster board
  • Colored pencils
  • Red ribbon
  • Safety pin
  • Plastic headband (blend to hair color)
  • Gloves (optional)
  • Face makeup (optional)

Instructions: Buy a sleeper in an animal print and socks to cover your child's shoes.

Fold the poster board in half and draw a heart design to look like the Ty label. Cut out the heart, leaving the left edge uncut, so it will open like a card. Color the design with the colored pencil (some markers will run if it rains). Open the heart, and write a poem about the animal on the inside. Punch a hole in the left corner, add a short ribbon, and pin it to the collar of the sleeper.

Using folded poster board, cut out the ears (triangles for cats, rounded semi-circles for others). Put the headband on your child's head, and position the ears around the headband. Remove the headband, then glue or staple the ears on.
