Is your child's Halloween costume going to wallow in a closet for a year and then get passed off to a sibling or neighbor? Amber fulfilled her son's wish to be a "Big Cookie!" for Halloween and also devised a clever way to repurpose the costume around the house. Any guesses what new life it's living?
Chair cushions! What kid wouldn't want to sit on a giant cookie (or, with simple alterations, a bagel, pizza, etc.). Plus, it can do triple duty as a soft pillow to hug and play with.
