With Child's Play: Quick and Easy Costumes for Special Occasions and Everyday Play, author Leslie Hamilton has provided  the definitive guide for creating  safe, easy, and imaginative children's costumes. From a rock star to a washing machine, Hamilton offers loads of creative costume ideas that are easy to design and  will delight your child.  

Who knew that costume design could be so effortless? With easy-to-read, easy-to-follow instructions Child's Play makes it possible for even the most domestically-challenged parent to create  more  70 fabulous costumes.  Also included are activities and games devised to engage your child's imagination before, during and after the costume-making process.

THE MUMMY

Tear an old white sheet into strips 2-4 inches wide. With child wearing a white or light gray sweat suit, wrap arms, legs and torso with strips. Use safety pins (or a stitch or two) to fasten ends to sweat suit. Leave some ends straggly. Wrap top of head with one or more long strips. White makeup with dark circles under of around the eyes completes the look. For small children, use rolls of gauze instead of sheet strips.
