It may seem odd to be talking about putting kids on the bus to school when the school year is winding down or even, for many school districts, over and done with, but for one high school sophomore in American Fork, Utah, the morning send-off may be the best part about being through with school. It seems his dad loves him so much, he was willing to go to some pretty extreme lengths to show that love — including by putting on a wedding dress.

There aren’t too many Halloween costumes I would forbid my kids from choosing. The more horrific costumes and characters are out, as are overtly sexual ones. Other than that, however, pretty much anything goes. I also have no problem with the kids crossing gender lines, if they so desire. My youngest loves putting on his older sister’s outgrown princess costumes and ballet skirts. I don’t have any problem with that, nor do a lot of other parents — including one who went so far as to write a book on the subject.
Although my kids are not huge Star Wars fans (they’re too young for it), quite a few of their friends are. So for them, this Storm Trooper helmet, made from two 1-gallon milk jugs, has got to be one of the coolest ideas ever. I’m not sure I could make it without a few practice runs, but that’s only because I’m completely inept at such things. It actually does look pretty easy to make.
The way I see it, this is a fantastic re-use of a discarded item and would make for the basis of a great holloween or a nifty addition to the dress-up corner. And if that isn’t enough for you, the same site has instructions on making your own lightsaber from a flashlight and a balloon. So get out the hot glue gun and send your children off to join the legions of the Galactic Empire’s finest!
