string a line from the top of your head to the top of each family member, then back to the original person. Go as an eruv! Make sure everyone goes to the bathroom before setting up the costume.
Oh, wait, that isn’t as good an idea as I first thought.February 27, 2011 2:43 am at 2:43 am #746236
yeah do farmers for the boys and cowgirls for the girls.. if there are any
and similar to ronrsr… i heard ppl to attached the whole fam to a string and hung clothes in between each child aka a cloths line … but its a little abusive lol !!!!!February 27, 2011 2:48 am at 2:48 am #746237popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Tie the kids up and gag them.
Go as pirates and hostages.

Mexican family theme is very easy to do… colorful ponchos & oversized colorful sombreros .. not too hard to do shalach manos with that theme either. 🙂February 27, 2011 2:54 am at 2:54 am #746239

Weird but you asked for original ideas….February 27, 2011 8:38 pm at 8:38 pm #746247observanteenMember
neek: How abt the army. Your husband can be the general, boys soldiers, girls American flags. Mishloach Manos in a plastic helmet with American flag junk, y’know. Oh… and you? Perhaps a tree? Or maybe the cook?February 28, 2011 12:44 am at 12:44 am #746248yaff80Participant

we were thinking of doing UPS delivery people, but when I asked someone that works there where i can get costumes he said I can’t and then “an investigator for UPS told me I can’t do it b/c will look suspicious
any quick ideas besides the ones which were mentioned above would be appreciated

you can get UPS costumes for kids online for about $20. google it. we were thinking about doing that a couple of yrs ago.March 1, 2011 5:47 pm at 5:47 pm #746255always hereParticipant
males can dress up in a ‘gi’– karate white pants & jacket, (or in black), w/ black cloth belt (or other color)– w/ bandana around the head. add a pair of nunchucks, & after Purim, you can all sign up for martial arts/defense classes. 🙂March 1, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #746256
none fit my kid’s size but anyway I wanted a family theme
