How to Make an Olympic Swimmer Costume
As part of the Care.com Halloween costume series, here's how to turn your child into a mini-Michael Phelps.
The 2016 Olympics may be over, but your child can relive all of the athletic glory with this champion swimmer costume. They could wear a bathing suit or shorts with this outfit, but it might be a little too cold out. Sweats are a good compromise.
- Black bathing cap
- Small American flag decal or sticker
- Purple ribbon
- Gold spray paint
- Yoga or sweatpants
Step 1: Apply American flag decal to side of black bathing cap -- Go USA!
Step 2: Cut cardboard into a few medal-size circles. Cover both sides of the circles in spray paint and let dry. Pierce a small hole in the top of each circle and run ribbon through. Tie the ends of each ribbon into a knot.
Step 3: Put on bathing cap, goggles, flip flops, medals, shirt and pants.
Step 4: Grab the stopwatch and go!
