These could easily be found at any shop.

Did Captain America ever come without his Shield?

Captain America cannot just cannot be complete, without his mighty shield. This could be made easily at home, given that DIY resources are available. One should be cautious of the weight of the shield because the kids will be running amuck from door to door in search of candies and it will be unfair if in their happy times, they are held back by the weight of the shield.
