Big Rubik's Cube and Mini-Me Cube Halloween Costumes by Tina Harris
Tina Harris’ son wanted to be a Power Ranger or a Ninja for Halloween, but she refused to waste money on a Halloween costume worn once –nor did her family even have the money to spend. Instead, she found a box, some construction paper, a glue stick, and black duct tape and created two Rubik’s cube costumes for her sons. The hardest part was getting the squares to fit evenly over the entire box. To her delight, once her son saw what a big deal everyone was making out of him and his little brother, he was not only happy that Mom made their costumes, but he started coming up with ideas for next year! They were the cutest kids on the BLOCK — no pun intended!
HOW TO MAKE THIS COSTUME
Find the perfect square box.
Cut the bottom out of it, tape the other three sides closed, measure for a circle opening for your head (and arms if needed).
Measure for what size blocks to cut out of construction paper and (glue) place them evenly on each side of box (random or same color).
Finally, use black duct tape to go over each section vertically and horizontally — keeping in mind to cover up the loose ends of tape.
