Add Fur to Boots

Transform a regular pair of snow or rain boots (temporarily) by using the other toilet seat cover. Again, trim off the inside elastic border, then cut the seat cover in two pieces vertically.

Wrap and Tie

Wrap one half of the cover around the top of each boot, securing with the last two remnants of the leather string.


Finish the costume with a Viking hat and Thor hammer, which can be found at a toy store or a party store. The hammer is made out of dense foam so kids can't really injure each other — but they do think it's the coolest thing ever.
