Is your child a Food Network fanatic? Is he or she eager to go grocery shopping with you, help you cook in the kitchen and try new foods? Celebrate his or her love of culinary creations by making them a Halloween costume of their favorite food.

Alton Brown’s creative Good Eats costume designer Amanda Kibler fashioned five foodie Halloween costumes that are almost good enough to eat for Food Network Magazine. Using simple, inexpensive and easy-to-find materials, Amanda made Good Eats, Great Costumes for kids.

The ultimate breakfast combo, bacon and eggs (pictured above) are ideal costume choices for sibling twins or best friends. When these trick-or-treaters go door to door, they’re sure to earn a few extra pieces of candy from the neighbors.

This lightweight and quick-to-assemble French fries costume (pictured above) is made with a cardboard box, red poster boards and painted foam pieces. To create a realistic ketchup effect, drizzle red paint atop the foam once dry.

The ultimate kid-friendly food, pizza is a go-to pick for dinners and costumes alike. This slice (pictured above) requires just felt, foam and butcher paper, and can be decorated with your child’s favorite toppings, including cheese, pepperoni, bell peppers and mushrooms.

Using colorful chipboard, corrugated paper and fleece, this sweet and sprinkled cupcake costume (pictured above) comes together in a flash. Substitute brown fleece for pink to make chocolate frosting.
