You can literally find inspiration for every topic on Pinterest. It really is a one stop shop for any idea. We found this board which has great ideas for wheelchair costumes! But don’t stop there, type in anything and see what the wonderful world of Pinterest can show you!

With the goal of “putting a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair,” Magic Wheelchair is an incredible non-profit organization that brings any wheelchair costume to life for children. If you are unable or don’t want to make your own costume, this would be the organization to look into. Each year, they select five kids and make epic wheelchair costumes for their Halloween celebration. To learn more about how they do it, visit their site. You can even donate to Magic Wheelchair which will help fund the costumes for deserving kiddos!
The best Halloween is a safe Halloween. Below are a few tips for your trick-or-treater:
Have your parents or an adult inspect all of your candy before you start to enjoy it. (And don’t eat it all at once. )
