Halloween is a special holiday for kids of all ages. Every year since I can remember I get excited about figuring out what I’ll dress up as for Halloween. The possibilities are truly endless. And, if you’re anything like me you always want to make sure it has an element of creativity. Because, honestly sometimes it’s more fun designing and creating the costume than it is running around trying to gather candy. I also tend to get the best reaction out of my simple DIY costume creations than anything store bought. My best advice, keep it simple. It doesn’t have to take a lot of money or a lot of supplies to really be a show stopper – all it takes is a little imagination.
The internet is a wonderful place for costume inspiration and I’ve come across some of my favorite DIY costume ideas to share with you. Does your kid love legos? How about an awesome Lego Indian Jones DIY kids Halloween costume, complete with tutorial. Since I was Toadstool a couple years back, I may be partial to this super cute Super Mario Brothers costume.
With only a couple weeks away, what do you have in store for your kids Halloween costume? If you’re still trying to figure out what to do for your kids Halloween costume, here are some great online resources I’ve come across to help with your search:
So whether your kid wants to be a hippie, a princess, a pirate or a shark (yes, all of these made an appearance in my costume history), it’s easy to find a way to make cool kids homemade costume that your kid will want to wear more than just once a year. With my family it meant lots of great hand-me-down costumes between kids each year.

Happy Halloween Costuming!
