I ended up with an unexpected problem this Halloween season – my son is scared of anything to do with Halloween! I didn’t see this coming at all. Halloween is one of my favourite holidays, so I just assumed he would be excited about it too. Turns out he’s not excited. At all.
I searched around for a costume, and found an amazing shark one at Winners. It was absolutely adorable, but I tried it on him, and he started crying. It was kind of a disaster! My next plan was to go back to Winners and see if I could find a costume that he would think was just another outfit, so he didn’t think I was dressing him up.
I found a totally awesome Ship Captain costume that was absolutely adorable. To try it on him I changed him just like I would any other day, and he started laughing at the cute medals on the shirt. Next I pulled out the gloves and hat, and he was begging me to try them on him. Success! He loves his costume, and it only cost me $24.99 at Winners. He even posed for me for a photo which meant he was pretty happy!
I saw lots of great costumes at Winners and Homesense on my hunt – Police Officer, Top Gun Pilot, Mountie….lots of costumes that were really cute!
The decor is so fun at Homesense and Winners as well! I have 5 or 6 giant boxes of Halloween decor in our basement, and the majority if it is from those two stores.
If you are having a Halloween meltdown with your toddler like I was, or are planning a Haloween bash, check out these images below of what Winners and Homesense have to offer now. Trust me, there is lot’s more to choose from in-store!
