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.)

    Olivia decided she and Zach would match again this Halloween. Last year they were Raggedy Ann and Andy. Guess what O chose for them this year? Zach is a urinal and Olivia is a toilet. Crazy kid!
    Here is the toilet:

    Ella: Halloween costume – Roller blade queen. She has a little crown and roller blades. And her dress is very flowy so when she roller blades. Bag idea: Her trick-or-treat bag is in the shape of a roller blade. When you put the candy in it slides down on the slide.

    Crystal: My comment is that they need to design some non-sexy costumes for teenagers but still are cool. So lets do humor. Tooth fairy, the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood complete with a nightgown and cap, Captain Crunch would be a good costume, etc.

    I would like to go as the Old woman who lived in a shoe!

    Zack: Goodie bag-
    The eyes are spiders. One spider squiggles up and down on the bag. The bag is orange and green. On the back says “Zachary Smith Bowman”. And then under it is a zebra with a spider on it.

    Jena: A candy bag that is a pumpkin with a light-up face that has a button to let you choose different settings. For example, one setting would just light up the whole face, another makes it flash on and off, another makes the lights go on one by one from the eye to the eye to the mouth to the nose, etc. The pumpkins are sold in different faces (scary, happy, etc)
