He/she is the best role model for little girls and it would be more than inspiring to make the costume of the doctor. A lot of young, little girls want to become a doctor when they grow up and heal ill people. This can be an amazing idea to boost their motivation from the earliest phase of their life. So you can give them just a plain white shirt and a stethoscope. This is not a demanding costume but can bring joy to your little girl since you will make their dream come true even for a second. 


Girls love butterflies. This is mostly because of their beautiful, colorful wings and their ability to fly. Butterflies are beautiful and gentle. You can make the wings by using white paper and cut them in the shape of butterfly wings. If you want to achieve a perfect shape, then you should put one paper over the other and cut them at the same time. Then you both can paint them the way your little one wants them. After the paint is dry, you should clip the wings in the middle and add two strings so that she can wear them on the shoulders. 


It might sound evil, but it is not since it would be the cutest little witch in the universe. For creating the cap, you can use black-painted paper or if you can find black paper, then it would be ideal. Then you should use a black dress and some black cloth to make a cloak. It is not recommended to use makeup for little girls since it can damage their skin, so you can improvise and use only a small amount of lipstick to paint their lips and add some tint to their cheeks.



If your girl is a fan of cartoons, then she is a fan of fairies as well. You can make a custom-made fairy costume by composing it with a nice cute gown, even a ballerina tutu, and some DIY wings. You can make the wings using hard paper or even cardboard, and paint them in different colors and add some glitter. It cannot go without a crown, so you can make the crown out of paper as well and make your little girl look like an actual fairy. 

It is quite demanding to make a costume on the budget for your little girl. Girls, when small, are quite demanding since they want the costume the way which sometimes may be quite costly.
