Costumes Kids Will Wear All Year & GIVEAWAY

I have nearly every Halloween costume that my boys have worn over the last 12 years.  They all are in a dress-up box in the attic.  Even costumes that are long outgrown are kept for the visiting friend or nephew who might absolutely need to be a chicken for the afternoon.

Because these items are used for years beyond the holiday, I have looked for sturdy and timeless additions.  I hit the jackpot when visiting our sponsor’s site,

Costumes Kids Will Wear All Year


These are just a sample of the costumes that I put in my cart at andRuby.

Oh, and did I mention they are $14.99?

What I love is that they are costumes that will take on a different role with each dress-up experience.  Likely the knight will be fighting the chef in some epic battle that includes flying projectiles in our playroom.  The doctor may step in after a consultation with the pilot only to discover that they are arch-enemies which will cause fleeing in opposite directions until the police makes a peace treaty.

And now I have a confession to make.

I went over to andRuby to pick something out for my kids.  Something that would make sense to write about here at Kids Activities Blog, but I got distracted…

andRuby - Things I could not live without


Yep, both of these items are en route to my house…I can’t wait to get them!

The Gigi Sweatshirt is $22.99 and comes in 5 colors.  The Houndstooth Jacket is also $22.99 and has a hood!

Be still my beating heart.

    1. I need some of those with each of my boys names on them so I can tell who dumped the couch pillows on the floor and walked out without cleaning the mess!

  6. This would be a great giveaway.. i love the different designs, couldn’t even name one.

    1. Oh no! I just checked and it looks like these and the cute pink reversible capes are all sold out. They were all there yesterday when I wrote this! Crazy.

  11. I love love love theTwo His & Hers Pillow Covers and the Houndstooth jacket you reviewed. SUPER cool! Thanks for the chance!

    1. I can’t wait to get it!

  12. I need to really make my home a reflection of me, and make it my sanctuary, I found so many amazing things on their site that would be perfect!!

    1. So true! I liked how unique everything was in the home accessories area.

  13. I would totally put the costumes in my cart if they were there, but they are not….so I’d probably go with the Be You (tiful) t-shirts for my kiddos!

  17. I love the Birds & Blossoms Statement Necklace, very pretty. I love the Gorgeous Damask Maxi Skirts, the Must Have Crochet Knit Cardigans (my mom would love this). But, I could keep going they have so much great stuff.
