My daughters wanted to be zombies for Halloween, but we couldn’t find anything at the stores. So we went in their closet and found old pants and shirts, and ripped them up. Then they got to stomp them in the mud (which they loved), and I glued twigs, moss, and leaves to them.
I used make-up from a zombie make-up kit from Wall-Mart, and I teased their hair (last time I ever do that!). Then we sprayed it gray, and I stuck twigs and leaves in it. It took about two days to get a brush through it, but it was definitely worth it!
We got tons of compliments for their Zombies costume.
