Last year J was set on being a race car driver for Halloween. Give me a quick and easy store-bought costume anyday. So I happened on a great race car driver costume at the Disney Store (the link shows the 2011 version) and called Halloween-prep completed. In the back of my mind, I kept thinking he needed a race car to go with his outfit. Fast-forward to October 30th about 8 pm. My parents were visiting and my mom agreed. He needed a race car.
How to: It was so quickly crafted (and so long ago), I don’t remember details. Lots of folding and refolding cardboard (the hard part), taping and retaping! We wrapped a diaper box in metallic red wrapping paper (it was actually Christmas paper but you can’t tell), added some foam tires, construction paper eyes and decals (the letters are foam stickers).
A little a lot of tape and glue and you have the perfect race car for a Lightning McQueen fan. Using duct tape, we attached Christmas ribbon to act as suspenders so that J could wear his car for trick-or-treating.
