Even though we do these in March for the holiday of Purim, I like to blog these around Halloween time since that’s when most of you dress up. The seasons are quite similar, at least here in New York. March was chilly but not very cold as it often is in Autumn.

 

M was obsessed with everything Sesame Street (he still is but not as much…) and so I decided that my best bet was to create a cute family costume that he would enjoy. So we were all good sports and dressed up together as Elmo, Big Bird, and Cookie Monster.

How I took the Sesame Street Inspired Family Costume Idea a step further:

 

On Purim we hand out food-centered gift baskets and treats so I followed along with this theme. You can get inspiration from this for Halloween as well.

 

I got the Apple & Eve Sesame Street juices and put one of each in each of my food packages. It’s a great healthier treat alternative and super popular among the younger crowd.

I also painted a small round container with a blue lid with crazy Cookie Monster eyes using acrylic paint. I filled it with mini cookies. The acrylic paint actually can peel right off so that the container can be reused without the eyes (you may need to wash it for it to peel) but it’s durable enough to last as long as you need it.
