As a mom of a girl, I think it’s important to encourage girls that they can like the same things that boys like. One year my daughter wanted to be a vampire, but thought it was a “boy” costume. This female vampire craft is a great way to teach kiddos that there are girl and boy versions of almost any costume. Get your girls excited to become a Vampiress!
