How to Make an Infant Football Costume

Sara Eberle

As part of the Care.com Halloween costume series, here is how to go from holding your infant like a football to turning him into one.

In just one easy step, you can turn your baby into a pig skin. But somehow that doesn't sound as cute as it will look! Have older kids, dress them as football players, make yourself the coach, and you've got a winning team!


  • Brown onesie
  • White bandage tape

Step 1: Lay out the brown onesie. Run one long piece of tape vertically down the middle. Then run five shorter strips of the tape horizontally across and evenly spaced to create football laces.
