Last year I wanted to dress the girls up as M&Ms. I brought it up with Maya last week, and she gave me a funny look. Apparently it’s a dumb idea because according to her kids only dress up as princesses, super heroes, witches, or pumpkins for Halloween.
I tried to push the M&M idea by letting her design her own candy character on the M&Ms website. This is what Maya & I came up with for her and baby sis:
But it didn’t work. The answer to the costume question is still up in the air. Maya changes her mind everyday; I might just see what’s available in the neighborhood costume exchange so I don’t waste any money. I figure I can’t go wrong with anything Disney or Princess-y. As for baby… she’ll probably be stuck wearing her big sister’s old witch costume if I can figure out where I stored it.
Want to become an M&M yourself? All you have to do is go here: www.m-ms.com/us/becomeanmm/ and follow the step-by-step instructions to customize your character. When you’re finished, you can buy custom merchandise, download it to your computer, print it, email it to a friend, and even play games with your new character! How cool is that! My daughter had a blast creating a likeness of herself.
What’s your favorite kind of M&M? I love peanut, especially mixed with popcorn! YUM.
