Is it teething time for your little one?

Top 10 last minute Halloween costumes

Vampire
Dress your child in a white shirt and black trousers and use a black bag to create a cape. Whiten their face with flour and use red lipstick to create blood around their mouth.
 
Ghost
Perfect for when you're really short on time. Simply cut two eye holes into a white sheet and drape it over your child. 
 
Gnome
This one is great if you have a fake beard lying around. Dress your child in blue trousers, a white long sleeved top and a waistcoat To make the gnome’s hat simply fold a roll of red card paper into a cone shape and secure with sellotape. Secure the hat onto elastic so it will stay on your child’s head.  
 
Little Red Riding Hood
Dress your little red riding hood in a blue dress and red tights. Make a red cape out of an old table cloth or sheet. Simply drape the cloth over your child’s head pinning it loosely at the neck. To complete the look get them to carry around a picnic basket.
 
Witch
This costume is perfect for busy mums. Simply cut a hole at the top of a black bag and one on either side for the arms. Dress your child in a stripy top and stripy socks, paint their face green and then pop the ‘black bag dress’ over them. Complete the look with a witch’s hat.  
 
Cowboy
Dress your child in denim jeans, brown cowboy boots, a shirt and a brown waistcoat. Finish the look with a cowboy hat, red bandana and a toy horse if you have one.
 
Pirate
To make this really quick costume, dress your child in black trousers and a baggy white blouse. Tie a red scarf around their waist and paint on an eye patch and beard. Finish the look with a red bandana on their head and loads of gold costume jewellery. 
 
Artist
This one is perfect for last minute. Dress your child in one of your white shirts and a beret. Cut a paint palette out of cardboard, blot some paint onto it and splash a few dabs onto the shirt. To finish off the look draw on a black curly moustache with eyeliner and get them to carry around a paintbrush.
 
 
Robber
Dress your child in a black and white stripy top, black trousers, black gloves and a black hat. Paint a black mask around their eyes or for the older child simply put clear tights over their head for an authentic robber look.
 
Viking
Dress your child in brown trousers, a brown top and put a furry waistcoat over them. To complete the look you will need to make a sword, shield and Viking helmet.
 
Firstly, cut a sword and shield shape out of cardboard and cover them both with tin foil. To make the Viking hat simply cover your child’s bike helmet with your trusty foil and use thick tape to secure horns cut from cardboard on either side.
