Family Halloween costumes you can buy or create on your own for any family size.
As a family of four, I always try to think of different groups of fours to inspire me as I create the costumes. Of course, using your child's favorite story, TV show or music group is a great way to get them involved.
I would love to see you in your Family Halloween Costumes. Please use the form below to send in your pictures:
What did you dress up us? Why?
In this photo our younger son is just a few months old. It is his first dress up costume.
I had the doggy costume and the cat costume and had to think of a way to get my husband and I to be part of the family costume...
... and since it usually cold and rainy on Halloween (at least in our part of the country) I put on my rain boots got an umbrella and said we are: "It's Raining Cats and Dogs"
Of course the adults thought it was witty and clever. The children, not so much. They were just happy to be dressed us as animals.
Inspired by the story of Goldie Locks and since I am the only girl in the house and I am living with my three bears, this costume came to us naturally.
I simply bought hairbands and added cut out foamy ears. My older son had a bear costume and the younger one is simply wearing a one piece cozy fleece.
Last year my children were obsessed with The Wiggles. We listed to them in the car, at home and we even went to see them live.
We talked about the kind of Wiggle we want to be (Red, Purple, Yellow or Blue). I went to the stores in search for plain color shirts (not any easy task) and added the Wiggles Logo by ironing it on with a T-Shirt transfer paper.
My kids were so happy about this costumes that to this day they were the shirts every once in a while... as do we :-)
