Halloween is one of the best holidays for young children. They are allowed to freely express who they are, or what they like. There are many wonderful Halloween costumes on the market for children of all ages. Here we will break down the groups and see what are the best costumes for kids for the spooky holiday.
Infants can have fun with Halloween, even if they are only a few months old. Go for the standard pumpkin, which is classic and looks cute on any baby. Or why not get them an Anne Geddes outfit? This is a wonderful costume that they can have their picture taken in and will be sure to keep them warm in the cool night. Plus there are many neat animals that the parents can choose from. The baby will look adorable dressed up as a tiger, bumble bee, butterfly, cats, dogs, horses, and elephants. This list goes on and on. Or forgo the entire animal theme and have the baby go as a pea in a pod. This is a classic look that will be cherished for years.
Toddlers and preschoolers always look cute in animal costumes. Or pick their favorite cartoon characters. Little boys look so sweet in Thomas the train costumes, and the look is one that will be remembered for years since Thomas has been around for quite a while. Sesame Street characters will never go out of style. And with many to pick from, there is a good chance that your toddler will want to be one. Pick Elmo, Zoey, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, or any of the other spectacular characters. Superheroes also make an excellent choice for toddler and preschoolers. What little boy would not want to be Spiderman, Batman or Wolverine for the day? Little girls would love to dress up as Princess Jasmine, Belle, Cinderella or any of the other Disney Princesses. This is a costume that can be used for a few years, and can easily be changed from year to year by adding different shoes, jewelry, and a tiara.
Children in grade school will also love to dress up as superheroes and Princesses. They also love the cartoon look as well. Younger girls may wish to dress up as witches, and the best part is they can pick if they want to be good or bad witches. Another huge hit for young girls is Hello Kitty. Young boys may wish to dress up as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or go as Bumble Bee or another Transformer.
Now older children can still have fun with Halloween, even if they do not go trick or treating. Older girls may wish to for the classic look of the witch as well. They will love to dress up as a punk rocker, or their favorite singer, such as Katy Perry or Taylor Swift. Older boys may decide to go as werewolves, zombies, or Frankenstein. Pirates make a wonderful choice for each.
Halloween is one of the best times of the year and everyone, no matter what their age is, should have fun with their Halloween costumes. It is the only time of the year where you can be whatever you wish and not be judged, so have fun with it.
