Every year as Halloween rolls around, we dust off the costumes, but when it comes to your children, do they get to choose their costume? The move to break gender barriers is on at even this young age, so let them choose what they want to be—boys can be Disney princesses and girls can be Spider-Man. Halloween is time for fun and anything goes. There’s no need to draw gender lines when it comes to having fun with a kid’s costume.
