Cute Children's Costumes

Halloween costume ideas for kids!

November 01, 2018 by MOMNOTEBOOK.COM

This is my LO's first Halloween and she didn't dress up because it was 73 degrees out when we went trick or treating and I didn't want her to overheat in her cute costume. However I got really inspired after seeing all of the creative costumes on other children as we walked down 24th Street in Noe Valley, San Francisco.

I think the key to having a great costume is creativity, unique idea, or making it yourself! I remember when I was a little girl my mom made my costumes. To this day I don't know how she did it- but I always loved wearing them! I had some pretty challenging requests too... Ellaroo (half elephant and half kangaroo), half ghost/half witch, and an alien. As you can see there were always too many good options and it was hard to decide on just one idea!


Here were some adorable ideas I saw:

  • golden gate bridge
  • baby baluga
  • unicorn
  • norwhal
  • pumpkin patch
  • care bear
  • bat
  • dragon (Puff the magic dragon)


Cute Family Costume Ideas

  • Mickey and Minnie mouse
  • fruit salad
  • Very Hungry Caterpillar and the items he eats...
  • star wars (Luke, Princess Leia, Ewoks, Chewy, etc.)
  • Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Baby Shark
  • skeleton family (onesies)
  • three little pigs
  • The Wizard of Oz

What did you and your LO (little one) dress up as this year? I'd love to hear about it and even add it to my blog post!
