Halloween Costumes for Kids and Babies
Halloween was never my favorite holiday. But when I became a mom, I found myself going all out with decor and costumes for the whole family. And I kind of want to throw a Halloween party this year. Looking for the perfect Halloween costume can be so much fun – and making magic for your kids really is the best part of being a parent. If you’re looking for Halloween costume ideas for your kids, I have something for everyone in this post. Here are the best Halloween costumes for babies and kids of all ages.
Halloween Costumes for Babies, Toddlers, and Kids
When my first was a baby, I waited until mid-October to buy a costume and everything was sold out. I ended up buying some cat ears and a little black onesie and it was so sweet and simple. I’m not very crafty and can’t sew, so I won’t be buying craft supplies and making my kids’ Halloween costumes. Store-bought is so much easier, but the good kids costumes sell out early. I’m letting the girls do their thing this year – they can each choose something they want to dress up in and can wear whatever they want on Halloween. I’m excited to choose something cute and fun for my little guy since he’s too little to care.
It’s so fun to dress up as characters from your favorite movies, tv shows, and books. I was sure my girls would choose The Little Mermaid this year! They don’t play video games but had a Princess Peach obsession for a moment. Last year, they wanted to be witches and on Halloween night, chose dress-up costumes so there you go.

Halloween Costumes for Babies
Baby costumes are so fun and sweet. It’s your one and only chance to dress your little girl or little boy as a favorite character from your childhood. Once they’re old enough to have opinions, there will be no picking out your child’s costume. Madeline was the perfect costume and I don’t know that I’ll ever top it.
Kids and Toddler Halloween Costumes
Halloween is a great way to make use of dress-up clothes or buy something fun your kids will use for dress-up. My oldest loves Moana, and we went all out years ago – it was so worth it. I don’t think I can get my kids on board with a family costume again, even though I really thought they might agree to Toy Story. Older kids have too many opinions, so they’re going to choose their own costumes. I just have one rule – no scary costumes. Here are some adorable costumes for toddlers, little kids, and big kids, too. I even included some superhero costumes.
