  • Here at SmartParenting.com.ph, we love giving our moms and dads the opportunity to showcase their amazing work — whether it’s a DIY toy for the kids, birthday cake designs, or a parent’s hobby that is inspired by their kids. This month, we’re celebrating Buwan ng Wika, and once again, we’re awed at the beautiful costumes parents have prepared for the occasion!

    15 Buwan ng Wika costume ideas for kids

     Whether it’s DIY or store-bought, these costumes were definitely prepared with love. And not only did the kids rock their looks, but they also showcased beautiful traditional costumes from different indigenous groups in the country.

    Scroll and look at some of our favorites!

    Mom Emerald Bailey loves to DIY for her kids, and this Buwan ng Wika costume she made for her daughter Brileyta was originally used for United Nations Day.

    Can you tell this costume is made from plastic spoons? Yes, both the dress and headdress! Emerald calls it her labor of love!
