Dice-Spray paint a box white, add head and arm holes, add black dots. If you want to go as “Fuzzy Dice” you can attach fuzzy material from a fabric store using hot glue.

Soap Box Costume

Get a bag of white balloons and a medium size box. Tip the box upside down, cut a hole for the head, Put the box over your head and cut out holes for your arms. Paint the box a bright color and the word “soap” across it. Then tape the (Balloon) “bubbles” to the top of the box around your shoulders and head. Voila, Soap Box Costume!

Race Car – Fold the sides of the box (on both ends), attach yard from front of box to the back (like suspenders) to rest over the wearers shoulders. Paint the box red, glue 4 paper plates (painted black) as tires. Cut out tail lights from construction paper and attach with a glue gun. Draw a number on the door and a grill on the front using a thick black marker

Robot – Use several different sized boxes, spray paint them silver and cut arm and head holes for a fabulous robot costume. Glue nuts and bolts on the front for control buttons.

Popcorn Box – Paint stripes on the bow and write “popcorn” in black letters. Dress in yellow and glue popcorn onto an old headband or hat & wear that.

Transformer – Apply duct tape to the box and paint various “decals” onto it to depict your favorite transformer.

Fire Engine – Paint the box red, to make wheels, add some black painted paper plates.

Sugar Cube – Cut holes for head and arms, spray paint white, let dry. Spray entire box with a spray adhesive, apply sugar liberally, let it dry. This one is NOT a nice one to leave indoors as the sugar flakes off and also in damp weather, for obvious reasons
