Kid-Friendly Toronto: Green Your Halloween with a Costume Swap

Autumn officially arrives in Toronto this weekend, which means that Halloween will be here before we know it. Many Toronto kids are trying to choose their costume for this year, while Toronto moms are hoping that whatever it is, it’s cheap and easy. If you can relate, we have the kid-friendly Toronto event for you. Plus – bonus points – it’s also eco-friendly!

Junction Halloween Costume Swap

Tackle your dress-up bin and round up the costumes that your children have outgrown or lost interest in. Make sure they’re clean, then head to Kid Culture at 3124 Dundas Street W between Sunday, September 22 and Friday, October 4, 2013 to drop them off. You’ll return to the store on Saturday, October 5 between 10:00am and 6:00pm when the swapping magic happens.

Here’s how it works: for every costume you drop off you’ll get a swap ticket. On swap day, you can exchange those tickets for some new-to-you costumes. If you love the idea but you don’t have any costumes to swap, don’t worry. You can buy a costume from the swap stash in exchange for a $5 donation to The Redwood, a safe haven for women and children fleeing abuse. Or check out Kid Culture’s selection of locally-produced costumes for a planet-friendly and kid-friendly Toronto Halloween.

Kid-Friendly Toronto Halloween Fun

The costume swapping fun doesn’t end once your kids are outfitted for Halloween. Diana Nazareth Photography will be on site with a photo booth, to capture some ‘spooktacular’ images. Play Me Mama will have costumes for sale as well. Green Moms Collective will be on hand sharing some information on greening your life, and Kid Culture will have some fun workshops for your little ones. You can also book a Halloween party with Pitter Potter for the easiest Halloween ever.

Here’s to a greener – and easier – Halloween!
