I do everything last minute.  It’s an ‘issue’.  Instead of being on the ball and super organized, I run around like a crazy person trying to fit everything in.  Case in point- I volunteered to help in Portia’s Kindergarten classroom tomorrow and I have neither a costume nor the treats ready to bring in.  Le sigh.

There’s no way I am alone in this.  Hands up if your wee one is still humming and hawing over their costume for Halloween!  Hands up if your wee one KNOWS what they want to be, but you still haven’t picked anything up!  You’re going to love this post if one (or both) of your hands are in the air right now!

I decided to do a little round-up post of easy, last-minute Halloween costume ideas sourced from Pinterest.  These are all costumes inspired from the shows we love most on Netflix.  So, while you scramble this evening to put one of these together, throw the show on for your kidlets to give you some breathing room.  😉

    These are so cute! Love the Unicorn. You are NOT alone! I was up last night throwing together ideas for what my daughter would wear to school today! We settled on her being a “Rebel” and I painted a star over her eye and sprayed sparkles in her hair.
