Zuri’s No Tricks Just Treats Halloween event at school is happening today! And we are so excited! 🙂
I mentioned before that Rupert and I made a promise of frugality for the months of October and November. That’s why, for the first time in years, Zuri is NOT buying any Halloween costume this year! Yup, we’re going DIY.
For the No Tricks Just Treats event at school, we’re reusing Zuri’s 4th birthday dress which I made myself with the help of Youtube. We’re restyling it to look like a witch costume with the help of some halloween accessories that we are getting from the pile that we have accumulated through the years. Check out Zuri’s halloween look below. 🙂
The broom and the witch hat with spider are some of the halloween accessories we have accumulated through the years. I think I bought them from Toy Kingdom years ago. The necklace and witch fingers were my in-laws’ old things which they left when they moved to Canada.
Also, last night, Zuri and I already prepared goodie bags for the Kinder class. Although the pre-packed halloween goodie bag by Trolli looks so cute, Zuri and I opted to go DIY. 🙂
We got the following candies from a nearby grocery store:
Zuri helped me prepare the goodie bags. 🙂
Each goodie bag contains one Trolli Sour Gecko, one Trolli Gummi Pizza, one JuJu Popping Candy (Barbie for girls, Ben10 for boys), one mini Chupa Chups, one Ice Pop and five JacknJill Wiggles. 🙂
For the halloween cards, we used these fancy papers from one of Zuri’s craft sets. 🙂
All in all, each goodie bag costs PHP 33.50. Not bad, right? 🙂
Halloween is one of the most fun times of the year and it doesn’t have to be heavy on the pocket. Reuse. Restyle. Go DIY. 🙂
Thanks for reading! 🙂
XOXO, Mommy Kay
