Wheelchair John Deere Tractor and Farmer Costume

Our one-year-old son Calvin is paralyzed from the waist down and uses a wheelchair to get around (and get into trouble). We decided to incorporate his wheelchair into his Halloween costume because he likes candy as much as any toddler, and needs a way to get to the front door!

Using just a cardboard box, some spray paint and yellow duct tape, we transformed Calvin’s wheelchair into a John Deere tractor that is the envy of other trick-or-treaters.

Sometimes other kids are afraid or unsure of Calvin’s wheelchair, but when it’s decked out in an awesome costume they are able to see Calvin as he really is – just a normal kid who uses a wheelchair instead of legs, and is super excited for all things Halloween.
