This year my older kids chose a profession for their Halloween costumes; one will be an astronaut and the other a policeman. Of course my youngest is still too young to have an opinion but I thought, “Hey, it may be my one of my last years to get to choose her costume so why not make her a scientist!”
But when I searched for DIY girl scientist costumes this is what I found – mad ones. What is to be mad about on Halloween? Why not make science just a tad bit sunnier? So I tweaked these Michael’s costume instructions to make my littlest scientist a happy one.
- Tie dyed t-shirt (about two times bigger than normal size): I found mine here
- Pink duct tape
- A black sharpie marker
- Safety glasses: These are old ones that we have but you can also buy safety glasses at Walmart or LakeShore Learning.
- Plastic beaker
How you do it: I followed Michael’s tutorial here for turning a tshirt into a labcoat but substituted the white shirt for a tie-dyed one! Easy-peasy!
Who says being a scientist means going mad and having crazy hair. Let’s have happy adorable scientists who can experiment AND rock the tie dyed lab coat!
I hope you are having as much fun as we are getting ready for Halloween!
