Be the city: NYC masks are great DIY costume addition

Crafty kids can show off their hometown pride this Halloween with these New York City Coloring Masks from omy. The masks are cute black line drawings on heavy white paper that kids can color with markers, crayons, colored pencils, and any glitter or other embellishments they dream up. Recommended for kids ages 3 and older, the set of eight masks includes a hamburger and fries; the Empire State Building replete with King Kong; a trio of shopping bags; a hot dog truck; a taxi cab; the Statue of Liberty; a big apple sporting a baseball cap; and a coffee with everything bagel (or, a sprinkle-covered donut — depending on how the child chooses to color it in). The kit contains the masks and elastic bands. Markers, glitter, and other accoutrements are supplied by the parent; creative ideas are generated by your DIY trick-or-treater.
