Get Creative with These Halloween Costumes For Kids

In Children, Halloween, Seasons & Holidaysby Adam's Crossing Apartments

October is full of excitement — crisp air, pumpkin carving, and of course, Halloween! Nothing gets you in the Halloween spirit quite like decorating around the apartment and brainstorming costume ideas with your kids. Although it’s always fun to dress them up, it can be difficult to stay creative. Furthermore, it can get expensive and time-consuming if you have multiple young children. This year, get creative with these DIY Halloween costumes for kids!

Tube Man Costume

For both comedy and creativity, use a children’s nylon tube to transform your kid into the Tube Man! Although it takes a few extra steps than simply purchasing a costume at the store, this costume by the DIY Network is one-of-a-kind!

Scuba Diver

This fun and inexpensive costume is perfect for both boys and girls — and all they need to wear is black pants and a black shirt! Delineate Your Dwelling teaches you the necessary accessories, like goggles, a metal pail, and two-liter bottles to create the oxygen pack. Choose whatever color your child wants to feature!

Bubble Bath

Grab some pink and white balloons for a cute bubble bath costume by Giggles Galore. Additionally, no sewing is required! All you have to do is gather safety pins, balloons, a rubber duck, and rubber cement. Have your child wear all white (with a white headband) and simply attach balloons.

Lumber Jack

Another easy costume is a lumberjack! If your child already has a flannel and jeans, just grab suspenders and a fake ax and beard! Check out these tips from Make It & Love It for the perfect lumberjack costume. Another perk — the flannel will keep them warm if it’s a chilly night!
