Upcycle that Costume

Upcycled costumes are important to Kid Frolic Austin.  It’s not always easy to find time to make significant progress in the upcycling department.  It’s time to refocus on what’s important!  In a few days, school will be back in session.  That means Mom, me, can get back to a steady work pace.  I’m very excited and looking forward to having some time to focus on the upcycle/reuse portion of Kid Frolic Austin.  Visit the Calendar here on the website for Open Hours, the unique upcycled items are only available in the studio.

By the way, Kid Frolic takes costume donations:  1107 S. 8th Street, 78704.  Near ish to Lamar Alamo Drafthouse.

Costume Count

Throw a dress-up party without spending a ton of money.  Costume count for a dress-up party: 

In the invite, let guests know if there is a theme, suggest that each guest wear a costume.  Be sure to let them know there will be additional costumes at the party as well.  The kids (most of them anyways) will be thrilled at the prospect of dressing up and will come in one of their beloved costumes all geared up and in ready-to-play mode.  Some kids will love the quick change wardrobe options, many will be perfectly content to flaunt the wonderful costume they already chose just for this occasion.  It won’t take long for most kiddos to settle on their favorite, then it’s play, play, play. 

Depending on the number of guests, a range of 5-10 choices is great.  A handful of costumes can go a long way.  A few good dress-up options is enough to make it engaging.  Remember, not everyone is going to want to change.
