    I love this article! Every year I take my little ones to the local thrift store for their Halloween costumes and they go crazy (in a fun way). They love seeing how creative they can be with what the store currently has and their imagination. Last year my daughter found a pink dress and wanted us to “paste” white dots on it so she could be Minnie Mouse. We are definitely looking forward to dressing up for Halloween this year.
