Below is a link to great advice from Easterseals on Halloween costumes for kids with disabilities or special needs. The article mentions that doing a trial run with the costume is a good idea, and that learning tips on how to attach costumes to wheelchairs and other devices will help along the way.
When doing costumes with my daughter’s walker in years past, one of my favorite “hacks” is industrial strength velcro! The stuff is amazing – super sticky back to hold it on, and the velcro holds super secure. Regular craft velcro can’t hold a candle to it. You can get it at Michael’s or off Amazon (Amazon link HERE to industrial strength velcro).
Also – Below are links to costumes we’ve done for my daughter with her walker in year’s past.
And then there is last year, when she wanted to be Ned, the Junior Conductor from Dinosaur Train. Did I mention that Ned is an orange, 4 legged, long neck dinosaur? This one pushed my abilities to the brink!
Happy costume making!
