Coolest Backhoe Loader Digger Costume

My three year old son is obsessed with backhoe loaders, or diggers, and that’s all he wanted to be for Halloween. With the help of his Aunt, an art teacher, we used a diaper box for the body, another box cut in two for a front loader and back loader, lots of black duck tape and hot glue, two cardboard tubes from dry cleaning hangers, yellow spray paint and black Sharpees. For additional support for the back arm, I used a Swiffer duster handle stuck in to the back top of the box and duck taped to the top of the arm.

This Homemade Backhoe Loader Digger Costume took many hours, a lot of materials and a lot of designing involved, but it paid off!
