Fun Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids

Halloween is a great time of year. You get to dress up in a silly costume and get loads of candy for free. The hard part of dealing with Halloween is figuring out what your kids are going to be. They often waffle back and forth and aren't sure what the best costume could be. Additionally, you might find that all of the costumes at the Halloween store are sold out, leaving you unsure of what to do. Here are some easy Halloween costume ideas that your kids will love. 


Kids love to be witches and warlocks because they love to pretend to use their magical powers on people. When looking for an outfit for your child to wear, you'll do fine with any kind of black dress or robe. If you want to add embellishments to the outfit, you could sew on glow-in-the-dark spiders or drape spider webs around them to make it extra creepy. 

Simply finish the costume with a hat and a broom or a wand, and the costume is ready to go. 


One of the best parts about choosing a western-themed outfit is that you can give the costume a lot of accessories to help enhance it. Of course, all cowboys and girls need a hat. They also need a vest and a neckerchief. However, don't forget about the belt. When looking at kids western belts, choose something fun and colorful. It could also be cute to include a large belt buckle that resembles what real cowgirls and boys wear. 


If your child is already a dancer and has a white leotard and tutu, you should use it to your benefit. Simply tack a feather boa around your child's neck, arms and waist to help create the feathered look. Then, get some white tights and shoes for them to wear while trick-or-treating.


Sometimes a whimsical costume fits your child better than a superhero one. When that's the case, you could turn them into a grater. To make the costume, you need to cut holes into cardboard pieces that you have spray-painted gray. You will want to make sure that you measure and cut the pieces correctly to avoid any odd gaps. You'll need one piece each for the front and the back and then a smaller piece for each of the sides. If you measure it correctly, you can construct the grater so that it slips over your child's head and rests on their shoulders.
