This is a versatile costume. It could be anything – a TV, a shopkin or anything else rectangular. Perfect for Halloween or just as something silly for the weekend. Best bit is most of us mums have nappy boxes lying around at some point.


  • 1 empty nappy box
  • scissors
  • paint


  1. Keep the open flap in the box where you have opened the box.
  2. Turn the box over and cut a hole in the base for your child's head and then on both sides for their arms.
  3. Paint the box a grey colour to be a robot (my daughter was too excited to let me do this step!!)
