halloween kids

It can be tricky coming up with Halloween costumes suitable for the whole family. With Halloween right around the corner, its time to improvise. Here are some family-friendly costume ideas that will surely make the kids happy.


1. Tinga Tinga Tales Characters

The characters of Tinga Tinga are bright, animated members of the animal kingdom. Each character has their own informative story, like why zebras have stripes, why leopards have spots or why chameleons blend into their surroundings. This costume could be an educational one and inspire the family to see the musical the next time it’s in the area!


2. Black Panther

Black Panther was arguably one of the biggest films of 2018. If your little one already loves superheroes, chances are they’re fans of T’Challa. Wakanda forever!


3. Mermaid

For the lovers of all things sparkly and princess-like, this is sure to be a winner.


4. World Leaders

You may be what you eat but you may also be who you dress up as on Halloween. Is your child inspired by a world leader? Why not dress like them?

5. Monster

Monsters, witches and ghosts oh my! This Frankenstein costume is simple and easily recognizable. No itchy green face paint necessary.


6. Corn on the Cob

Who doesn’t love maize? Layered with an oversize sweatshirt and textured yellow and green, this one is pretty straightforward.


7. Sandwich

Think your kid is cute enough to eat? Prepare for the sandwich costume. This can be as simple or as detailed as you like- all you really need is two slices of Supaloaf!


8. Rainbow Everything

This could be anything from a fairy to the rainbow itself. Have a bunch of rainbow clothing items? Throw them together for a fun look.


9. The Wizard of Oz

Follow the yellow brick road and go as a family! These characters are iconic and lend themselves well to interpretation.


10. Super Family

Make the whole gang dress up as the Incredibles or another group of superheroes. After all, there’s strength in numbers!
