Watermelon Costume

Your kid is "one in a melon." (See what we did there?) So try this no-sew costume — party hat included — that says it loud and proud.

Introduction

This costume idea comes from our friends at Primary.com. Kids clothes or a color-coordinated pair of pajamas all work as the base for this outfit — simply use stick-on seeds and a party hat to top off the look. When shopping for crafting supplies, check out your local dime store: they will have most items on the list of materials.
