Easy to Make - Milk and Cookie Costume

To make the milk container costume:
You'll need:
white 3-piece folding foam display board
red construction paper
precut block lettering
white face paint
X-acto knife
Scissors
Tacky Glue

  1. Cut out openings for arms with the exacto knife on opposite sides of the display board. Try it on as you go to make sure it fits well. Mark where the board hits at the knees, so you can cut the bottom of the board horizontally, also mark where the face is so you can cut a round opening for the face. 
  2. At the top, cut the sides on an angle so they look like a milk carton.
  3. Using scissors, cut stripes and blocks out of the red construction paper to create the milk carton design. Glue the red shapes and block lettering onto the foam board.
  4. You can use white face paint to create a "Milky" complexion. Use white gloves and red pants for that extra fantastic touch.
