So your little one wants to be a firefighter for Halloween? Or maybe she just wants a uniform of her own for dress-up play after a school field trip to the local fire station. You could always buy an off-the-rack costume, but making a DIY costume with your toddler offers an opportunity for parent-child bonding and results in a unique costume that nobody else on the block can match. (You already knew it was cheaper, too, right?)
Place strips of yellow reflective tape along the bottom edge of the raincoat, all the way around.
Place another strip of yellow reflective tape across the coat's chest.
Place one ring of reflective yellow tape on each of the coat's lower arms. Repeat with the upper arms if you like.
Outline the coat's collar in reflective tape.
Apply a ring of reflective tape around the top of each boot.
Dress your child in the black shirt and pants first, then the boots and coat. Top off with a plastic firefighter's hat. Your costume is complete.
