Halloween Toy Design Project!
I have been looking forward to the Halloween project for a few months. I have been having an internal debate whether we should make cool costumes or make awesome trick or treat candy bags. I was unable to decide between the two, so we are actually going to do both.
Some of you may already have your costume all figured out, so you can focus on making a cool trick or treat bag. Others of you have not even thought of what you are going to be for Halloween and this will be a great opportunity to work on designing your own costume.
Trick-or-Treat Candy Bags
When I was a kids I used an old pillow case as my candy collecting bag. Wait… isn’t that what looters carry the stuff they steal around in? We can do better than that… right?
Here are some fun bags that I found:
Owl Goodie Bag by Susie (found here). They have a downloadable template to make your own bag. Thanks!
Scrappy Owl by The Long Thread (found here).
Candy Corn Bag by Ducktivities (found here).
This great little youtube video helped get me in the mood to design some sweet Halloween stuff… Beware the tune is kind of catchy:
You see the list is short! There needs to be more fun bags out there!!! Come on little designers, the trick-or-treaters need your help to be able to have a cool fun bag for Halloween night to help gather up all that yummy candy. Let’s see what you got. Design and submit a trick-or-treat candy bag to be eligible for the free toy giveaway. (If you need inspiration I have sketched out some design concepts here)
If you are making your own costume take a picture of the costume (with you wearing it or not, up to you) and submit it to be eligible for the free toy giveaway.
If you do both, design a bag and costume, you will have double the chances of winning. Good luck!
(Submit your designs as a comment to this post and attach pictures or drawings if you have them. If you have any issues please let me know and I can help you out.)
