I found the complete instructions to create this adorable costume here.
Need: Swim Trunks, T-shirt, Visor, Beach Towel, Sunglasses, Flip Flops,
Surf Board (you can create a surfboard out of cardboard too.)
Use brown face paint to give a tan look, add a little red to give a sun burnt look and
white on the nose for a sunscreen look.
Need: Old torn up clothing, boots, old glasses (if you’d like)
Make cardboard sign that reads “Will work for candy or will play for candy.”
Use brown face paint to create a dirty face. Use black face paint to create a scruffy beard and mustache look, add large eyebrows if you’d like too.
Need: sunglasses, ripped jeans, jewelry, wig or spiked hair, bandana
Create a guitar out of cardboard, have your child color it.
Need: brown clothing, string for belt & part of the headband, brown material (headband)
trim (if you have it, hot-glue or pin in place) feather, bow and arrow, face paint.
Use brown face paint to darken the face, paint stripes on face.
and… here are some cute ideas that I found online:
