Neither of my boys have the stamina to walk long distances. This is why we love our Little Tikes Cozy Coupe wagon. This has been a savior in so many different situations such as amusement parks, the zoo, and even walks around the neighborhood. This is why I am absolutely planning on taking the wagon with us Trick-or-Treating.
Last year, I saw some other parents decorating their children’s wagons in order to match the kid’s costumes. I thought that this was a fabulous idea except I had no idea what sort of coordinating costumes I could do for the boys. That was until my boys decided to be a monkey and a lion this year for Halloween and I realized I could do a safari-themed wagon!
I debated how to create this jungle themed wagon as I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on it, especially since it would only be for one night. It turns out with a little bit of creativity (and a little bit of luck) I found a great way to make our wagon!
Baby R had had a jungle-themed first birthday party and I had saved some of the decorations. One of these decorations was a folded table centerpiece. I was able to use this centerpiece to wrap one side of the wagon. The other side has a door that swings open so it wouldn’t have worked on that side.
In addition to the stuffed animals and the jungle background, I also added a jungle print hand-tied blanket to the wagon in order to keep the boys warm on Trick-or-Treat night. This also fit perfectly with the theme and even had leopards and monkeys on it.
Little E is really looking forward to taking this super-cute wagon out in order to show off his monkey costume in just a few weeks. I am looking forward to not having to carry him home and our Little Tikes Cozy Coupe wagon giving my back a break!
