What can brown do for you? Give you an awesome Halloween costume idea for your kid -- who is, of course, your very own special delivery.

What you’ll need:

- long, rectangular box
- scissors
- pencil
- brown, gold and yellow paint
- black construction paper
- four blank CDs
- hot glue gun
- brown pants, shirt and cap

How to make it: Position the box horizontally and cut out holes for your kid’s head and arms. Remove the underside of the box so the whole thing can be worn as a shirt. Paint brown and let dry. Then paint the UPS logo along each side with gold paint and the head and brake lights with yellow paint. Let dry. Trace and cut out four circles, each 6 inches in diameter, to make the tires. Glue each blank CD into the middle of each “tire.” Secure the tires to the bottom corners of the box with hot glue so they look like wheels. Then, dress your kid in all brown so he looks the part!
