Cool, Quick and Easy Halloween Costume Ideas For Kids
Looking for unique kids Halloween costume ideas to dress your kids up for trick-or-treating this year? Keep reading for cute, quick and easy Halloween costumes for kids.
This year get a head start on Halloween by thinking of ideas for Halloween costumes for your kids. Halloween costumes for kids are available just about everywhere. Grocery stores even sell them! You can choose a manufactured costume or you can create your own Halloween costume if you're on a budget.
Costumes from famous people are not only popular, they are fairly easy to put together. The best way to dress your kids in a famous person costume is to go with the outfit the famous person is most noted for. For instance you can dress up as Waldo from the where's Waldo books by putting on a striped red/white shirt with blue pants and a red and white stocking cap.
Superman has been a favorite Halloween costume with kids for over 30 years. There are many commercial versions of superman costumes as well as homemade versions. Most include tights, a bodysuit in red and blue and a red cape. Many little boys use a towel around their necks when pretending to be Superman during the year so having a Superman costume can be fun after Halloween is over too.
Clowns bring smiles to everyone’s faces. Clown costumes can be simple to quite elaborate. Kids can use wigs or they can spray colored hair spray to change their hair color. Make-up or a big red nose can help with the look. There are many different types of make-up or if you prefer, you can use a mask. The main thing to remember with a clown costume is to have fun, keep it light and happy. Clowns are supposed to make people laugh and bring happiness to others. But since it is Halloween, this is one occasion where it might be appropriate as well to create a scary clown costume if your child is old enough to handle this type of costume.
Dragon costumes are another fun idea. A body suit that has scales/spikes along the center of the back works well for a dragon costume. Many commercial costumes are available for kids who want to dress up as dragons.
Knights who slay dragons can go trick-or-treating with your dragon. Dressing your children with the theme of dragons and knights is fun and can help to encourage a playful theme between your children for Halloween. With movies like Eragon becoming so popular, these costumes are going to increase in popularity.
Sponge Bob is a fun character that kids can dress up as for Halloween. A pair of brown shorts, black belt, and a yellow shirt with circles to make it look like sponge holes, and a silly look on their face will complete your Sponge Bob costume. If you want a more realistic Sponge Bob costume, you can find them for relatively inexpensive commercially as well.
Cookies are not only fun treats; you can dress your child up as a chocolate chip cookie! A large circle cut out of flannel or fleece sewn together so that your head, arms, and body can fit through with the cookie centering around your body makes a cute and original costume idea. Try varying this idea for your next costume contest.
With all the possibilities available there should be quite a varied range of costumes at your next costume party.
