GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn - Halloween is only a couple of weeks away, but that doesn’t mean parents need to panic over their kids’ ideal costume.

Gianna Kordatzky from Family Fun Twin Cities has researched and found 30 different ideas that you can make from items in your own home.

She says If you take stock of what is already in your closets and think outside the box, you can save money. There may be a quick trip to a thrift store in your future, but anyone can build a solid costume from clothes they already have.

If you are looking for a great place to show off your costume, FFTC has collected all the family friendly Halloween events happening in the Twin Cities.
