Zoo Keeper Costume

My daughter decided she wanted to be a zoo keeper for Halloween this year.  I think it such a unique and creative idea--and I have to say I was relieved that she decided to break her three year trend of being Super Girl!

This girl loves learning about wild animals and even created her own little wild animal pocket book to go along with her costume.  She had so much fun researching different animals, picked two for each letter of the alphabet, and included them in her book along with a photo and interesting fact.

This costume was super simple to put together.  I found a plain brown shirt and put a "zoo keeper" patch on it (she added a long sleeve black shirt underneath because it was cold).   The hat I happened to find at Hobby-Lobby and the pants she already owned.  Since the costume was so simple (and a little plain) I let her pick out a snake to add something fun.  

 She loves her new stuffed snake and it's no secret that her brothers are jealous. 

This girl is ready for an adventure (and Halloween)!

What are your kids being for Halloween this year?
