Using costume characters is a cheap and excellent way to help kids (or adults) grasp a lesson. They provide a number of benefits and can be utilized in a variety of types of services and any church size. We’ve used costume characters in outreaches, regular services, our family experiences, and even in our Easter and Christmas services, which is a great way to make visitors feel more comfortable. I’ve identified a few of the things that make costume characters a great tool that should be in every kidmin’s arsenal.
They are cost-effective: Costume characters can easily be created out of miscellaneous stuff you have lying around or by purchasing random items from yard sales and thrift stores. I also usually spend a little bit of money when Halloween stuff goes on clearance for wigs and props up to 90% off. When it is that cheap, I often buy things I don’t need but could possibly need someday. I’ll even help you get some cheap eyeglasses for your characters.
