10 Kids Halloween Costumes We Love

Fall is officially here and Halloween is just around the corner.

Tricks. Treats. And lots of costumes.

I love seeing the little kids dressed in their costumes parading down the street on Halloween night. They look so adorable waddling up to the door and eeking out a “trick or treat” with their goodie bag in held in outstretched arms. They make it worth the big bucks we spend on giant bags of fun size candy bars every year.

However sitting at home and passing out candy to the cute princesses and scary monsters isn’t an option for everyone. Many of us have our own kids to dress up and walk through the neighborhood with on Halloween. Thanks to Pinterest we have no shortage of ideas for costumes.

Check out these 10 kids costumes for Halloween that we absolutely love.

Mouse Trap
For those kiddos who can’t walk the distance. Incorporating the wagon into the costume is genius.

Where the Wild Things Are
Fantastic idea for a themed family costume.

Tiny kid. Old man. Too cute.

Edward Scissorhands
This is incredible. Tim Burton would be proud.

Gumball Machine
So cute and functional long after Halloween is over.

How warm and fuzzy does this look? I wonder if they make them in my size?

I’ll be wearing my youngest this year while trick-or-treating. I love the idea of making babywearing part of the costume.

Stay-Puf Marshmallow Man
I wonder if I could get my husband to dress up as a Ghostbuster?

Candy Corn
I can’t stand those nasty little candies but this is deliciously adorable.

Awesome variation on a classic Disney character costume.

Do you have a favorite? What are the little ones in your life dressing up as this year?
