Easy Halloween Costumes for Kids

Published: Oct, 10 2019

Halloween is just around the corner! If you are still in need of a costume for your little one, look no further!

From school events, to family parties and trick-or-treating, Halloween can be busy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun for the parents too! When planning Halloween for your family, the most important thing to remember is to have fun with it! Halloween shouldn’t be stressful and hopefully a quick and easy costume will help you and your family have a fun and relaxing day!

Here are some of the cutest, easiest, and stress-free Halloween costumes for kids:



Black Cat

All you need are a pair of cat ears (easy to DIY if you can’t find them), some black clothing, and face paint (or eyeliner!) to draw on whiskers!




All you need is a witch hat! You and your child can come up with a fun outfit to match the hat, maybe some striped leggings or tights and a black or purple t-shirt, and you are ready to go! If your child would prefer to be a wizard, a simple hat change will do the trick!



This is by far the easiest one on the list. Take a white sheet, cut holes so your child can see, and you are ready for trick-or-treating!




This costume can be done in many ways. You can buy a cape, make a cape, or just use a blanket or sheet as a cape, and then add the optional mask. The colors are completely up to you!



From Tinkerbell to the Fairy Godmother, this can interpreted in a million different ways. Start with a basic t-shirt/leotard/tank-top paired with a skirt or even pants (whatever makes your child most comfortable), and pair with some fun accessories! Some of the optional additions include (but are not limited to): wings, a tutu, a tiara, tights, magic wand, and ballet slippers.



This costume is simply a leotard (or shirt) with a tutu (or skirt) and the added ballet flats. You could even use a dress instead of a skirt or ditch both ideas and wear pants! This is up to your imagination and interpretation, just have fun with it!


A few more easy costumes not listed above are: bubble bath (a simple google search will lead to some fun costume interpretations of this beloved nighttime ritual), a firefighter (this one can be less DIY and more quick-trip-to-the-party-store), a princess (Disney or otherwise, this one is super easy!), and an athlete (if your child already plays sports this one is convenient, just throw on their uniform!).
