Costume Ideas for Kids to Put On This Year
This is one of the easiest costumes to get a hold of, and it seems to be a big hit with kids nowadays. They will particularly enjoy the fact that the costume comes with a hard hat and a plastic hammer and saw. Also, this costume can also double as a play costume; meaning your kid can still wear it months after Halloween when he’s playing games or sports. Talk about being double-duty.

Wonder Woman, Batman, or Any Other Superhero
Superheroes are a common costume theme during Halloween, and there are lots of superheroes you can choose such as Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the like. Because this is such a common theme, this kind of costume can be the easiest to find and get a hold of. They’re so popular that you can easily find some versions that are well within your budget.
Pop culture is a good place to look to for fashion inspiration during Halloween, and one of the most popular figures in recent times is Harry Potter and his friends at Hogwarts. This costume is even better if your kid is a fan of the Harry Potter books or movies as he is sure to enjoy dressing up as his favorite characters.
If your kid is into sports, a costume of his favorite sports theme is another good Halloween idea. Your kid can dress up in the jersey with the number of his favorite player, or he can even cosplay as his favorite athlete. This is another costume that can turn out to be multifunctional as it can also double as a play outfit.
This is another popular option for Halloween. If your kid is into magic tricks, he will enjoy dressing up as a magician. You can make it more fun for him by teaching him some tricks he can show off to other people. You never know; he might end up impressing them so much that they’ll give more candy in return. Just make sure you don’t let your kid eat all the candy at once or they’ll develop stomach trouble or, worse, cavities.
Star Wars Character
If you and your kid are a fan of the Star Wars series, what better idea is there than to dress up as his favorite character? The best part about it is that he gets to wave a lightsaber around in all its luminescent glory.
