As part of the Care.com Halloween costume series, learn how to turn your child into a character from his favorite app.

Bored at the pediatrician's office, here, play Angry Birds. It happens all the time. And now, one of the best grown-up games is a hit amongst kids. At least they're not playing Words with Friends (yet)! Using this image as inspiration, here is how to recreate the characters who spend their time slinging themselves at bricks and pigs. But maybe yours won't be so angry!

Works for up to 5 people.

Materials:

  • 5 sweatshirts in red, yellow, blue and white and/or black
  • 5 white or yellow sweatpants or leggings
  • Felt in white, black, yellow, red, orange and blue
  • Black fabric marker
  • Poly-fill batting
  • Fabric markers
  • Scissors
  • Glue

Step 1: Outline eyeballs on white felt. Cut out and trace outer edge in black marker. Draw pupil. Also cut out black or red eyebrows, yellow beaks, under-eye circles and tuft of feathers, all based on each bird's picture. Glue on corresponding sweatshirt in face formation.

Step 2: Using a long sleeve shirt as the first layer, put sweatshirts over the t-shirt and tuck everything into the leggings.

Step 3: Stuff belly of sweatshirt with Poly-fil to give the round-bird effect. If necessary, hold in place by wrapping elastic around the sweatshirt.

Can also dress others up as pigs!
