Buy a child a ready made costume, a toy, a tasty treat and you'll make him happy for a while (in the case of my kids, only 5 minutes).
Give him the means to make his own, and he'll be happy, excited, busy, involved for lots longer. Moreover his creativity, 'can-do' attitude, dexterity, sense of achievement will develop during that time and will accompany him all through his life.
All this sounds great and I admit that often is so much easier to buy the ready made everything than taking the time to find crafts ideas, age and ability suitable.
Luckily, I found a great place online that offers Fun, creative and earth-friendly craft projects, delivered each month by GreenKidCrafts .
