      This is a great costume for little ones (from 6 months to 2+). All you need is a
      red sweatsuit (preferably one piece), a red knit cap, 1 large orange pom-pom, a
      set of large plastic doll eyes (the ones with the black pupil that jiggles
      around), a pair of elmo slippers, and fabric glue. Simply attach the eyes and
      the pom-pom with fabric glue to make elmo’s face.

      You can also add a mouth by
      using black felt, but I chose to no to because when I put the hat on my son I
      had to roll it up and it left no room for a mouth. Slip on the sweatsuit, the
      hat, and slippers and you are done!

      My 2-year old wants to be Elmo. I bought a red sweat suit and ping-pong balls
      (Elmo’s eyes) from Target, and a red baseball hat, orange felt and one styrafoam
      chicken egg (Elmo’s nose) from Michael’s Craft store. Cover the egg with the
      orange felt.

      Draw pupils on the ping-pong balls for Elmo’s eyes. Take nose and
      eyes and hot glue them to the red baseball hat. Dress child in sweat suit and
      hat – be hold elmo!

      painting child’s face red is optional and depends on if your
      toddler will hold still.


      if you can use a glue gun, you can make this adorable halloween costume in only
      an hour or so.

      purchase a red, hooded sweatsuit and a pair of elmo fuzzy slippers in a size to
      fit your child. you can usually find these items at any discount department
      store. while you’re there, stop in at the crafts department for three styrofoam
      balls, some orange and black acrylic paints, a tube of puffy fabric paint and a
      lot of gold glitter.

      when your active child is taking a much-needed nap, haul out the glue gun and
      get started! first, paint one of the styrofoam balls with the orange paint. this
      will be elmo’s nose.

      then paint black circles on the remaining two styrofoam
      balls, creating elmo eyes. place these balls on the hood of the sweatshirt and
      hot glue them into place.

      using the tube of puffy fabric paint, write the word “elmo” on the front of the
      sweatshirt. fill in the center of the letters with good old elmer’s glue and
      sprinkle with glitter.

      on halloween night just dress your child in the sweatsuit, pull on the slippers
      and head out for some fun trick-or-treating. don’t forget to take photos!
