As part of the Care.com Halloween costume series, here is how to turn your sweet little baby into a grouch.

Prepare for the terrible twos by turning your infant into your favorite ornery Sesame Street character: Oscar the Grouch.


  • Green knit cap
  • Googly eyes
  • Brown pom poms
  • Black felt
  • Red felt
  • Black fabric marker
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Green onesie
  • Green pants
  • Stroller
  • Gray blanket

Step 1: Glue Googly eyes to front of hat. Glue pom poms over eyes to make bushy eyebrows.

Step 2: Cut a semi-circle out of black felt to make mouth. Cut a smaller semi-circle out of red felt to make tongue; glue red felt to black felt; glue black felt onto hat below eyes.

Step 3: Put on outfit: green onesie, green pants and cap.

Step 4: Put baby in stroller and cover with gray blanket (aka the trash can).
