Do you need a Halloween costume for a child in rapid fashion? You could spend $20 at your local department store or you could try this quick idea from me:

  1. Using appropriate face paint or other suitable makeup, give the child a mouse face.
  2. After you give the child the right makeup, take any gray sweatshirt without a hood and turn it inside out. Place it on the child backwards and zip it up.
  3. Make mouse ears out of stiff black paper and attach them to the back of any hat which fits the child. In a pinch you can use paper plates cut to size. Color a black outer rim and pink inner ear.
  4. Add gray or black sweat pants, perhaps tucking the sweat top into the waist band.
  5. Twist together two or three black shoe laces and attach for a tail. An easy cape adds to the fun.
  6. Squeak, squeak... instant mouse!
