Pediatric dentist know that all children are not alike. Every service is tailored to your child as an individual. Nitrous oxide/oxygen may not be effective for some children, especially those who have severe anxiety, nasal congestion or discomfort wearing a nasal mask. Your pediatric dentist will check your child’s medical history, level of anxiety and dental treatment needs and tell you if nitrous oxide/oxygen is recommended for your child. Pediatric dentists have comprehensive specialty training and can offer other sedation methods that are right for your child. Looking for more posts about nitrous oxide?

Li’l Pumpkin

Step 1:

Start with a pair of striped pajamas, an over sized orange T-shirt and a tie-on cap. Get some felt (orange, black, yellow and green) and fabric glue.

Step 2:

You will leave the set of pajamas as is. Take the T-shirt and cut the ends of the sleeves so that they are zigzagged. Then cut a pumpkin shape and pumpkin face shapes out of the felt and glue them onto the front of the T-shirt. Allow to dry. (If you choose, glue a length of gold rickrack along the T-shirt collar and allow to dry as well.) Cut leaf shapes out of the green felt and glue them to the cap. Allow to dry.

Step 3:

To get your little one into costume, simply put the pajamas on first, the over sized pumpkin T-shirt on top of the pajamas and the leafy cap onto his head.

Proud Pirate

Step 1: Dress your little pirate in a puffy white peasant blouse, a colorful vest, striped leggings and black or brown shoes.

Step 2: Tie a striped scarf or piece of fabric around their waist like a sash and a sheer black piece of fabric around their shoulders like a cape.

Wise Wizard

Step 1: Take an over-sized long-sleeved purple or blue shirt and cut the ends of the sleeves on a diagonal so they come to a point. Then cut the bottom of the shirt so it’s zigzagged and glue geometric shapes of black felt on with fabric glue.

Step 2: For the bottom of the costume, dress your young wizard in black pants. Take a long purple or blue skirt, zigzag the bottom and put it on top of the pants. Add a gold tie around your wizard’s waist.

Step 3: Add a pointed hat (decorate it with star and moon stickers), a scarf (dark or glittery is best), a colorful wig, a cane, boot covers and glasses.

I am a wizard

Menacing Monster

Step 1: The base of the costume is a long-sleeved shirt, spotted leggings and boots.

Step 2: For the body, cut a length of fake fur fabric that is about twice as long as you want it to be on your child. Fold it in half lengthwise, sew up each side almost to the top (leave room for armholes), cut a hole in the top fold for your child’s head and cut the bottom edge so that it is zigzagged. It should fit like a baggy sleeveless tunic.

Step 3: For paws, cut out two pairs of fur pieces shaped like mittens (trace your own hands, leaving an inch or two of extra space) and sew them together. Then cut a slit and thumb hole in the bottom of each for your child’s fingers.

Step 4: Cut out two rectangles of fur fabric, each long and tall enough to wrap around a boot. Secure them in place with glue and allow to dry.

Step 5: Make the cap using a simple pattern available at a craft store or buy a knit hat and glue on horns, eyes, etc. made of felt.
