Make a Matching Mom and Baby Kangaroo Costume
This Halloween, keep baby close and portable by taking a cue from our furry friends down under. Combine these easy-to-make kangaroo hats with a brown ensemble, then fix baby onto your front with a comfy cloth carrier.
- adult and baby brown beanie caps
- 1 sheet each of white, tan, brown and black felt
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Trace Templates Onto Felt
Print out mommy kangaroo and baby kangaroo templates, attached above, and cut out stencils. Trace individual stencil shapes onto corresponding colored felt sheets and cut out.
Attach Felt to Hats
Referring to image below, use a hot glue gun to attach felt pieces to front of brown hat. When attaching the ears, cut a slit in the middle of the bottom tab as indicated on the stencil, then fold the tab back while angling the two halves inward before gluing onto hat.
Pull Entire Outfit Together
Pair mom's hat with brown leggings and a tunic or sweatshirt. Dress baby in a brown onesie before comfortably positioning him or her in a brown cloth carrier or sling for a "kangaroo pouch" effect.
