Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re a parent, you might find yourself in a last-minute scramble to put together the perfect costume for your little one. But fear not! We’ve got you covered with these 7 last-minute costume ideas for kids this Halloween that will make your child the star of the trick-or-treating night.
1.Paper Bag Monsters
Grab a brown paper bag, cut out holes for eyes, and let your child’s imagination run wild with crayons or markers to create their own unique monster face mask.
2. Classic Black Cat
If you have a black outfit, all you need are some homemade cat ears (attach black paper triangles to a headband) and a little face paint to create whiskers. So Easy!
Grab a plain black outfit for your child and use white fabric paint, tape, or chalk to draw white bone shapes on it. Paint their face white and add black lines for skeleton features. In no time, your little one will be a bone-chilling skeleton!
4.Witch or Wizard
Find a dark-coloured outfit and add a cape, which can be created by cutting up an old black sheet or using a large piece of fabric. Finish the look with a pointy hat (you can put one together from cardboard and black paper). Don’t forget a broomstick for that magical touch!
Raid the dress-up box for an eye patch, bandana, and a striped shirt. Add a cardboard sword or hook hand, and your child is ready to embark on a pirate adventure. Arrr, matey!
The classic ghost costume is a breeze. Find an old white sheet or pillowcase, cut holes for the eyes, and drape it over your child. They can float through the night as a friendly ghost.
Find an orange outfit, paint a jack-o’-lantern face on their tummy, and craft a stem-shaped hat from green paper. Adorable and festive!
These last-minute Halloween costume ideas are not only easy to put together, but they also leave room for your child’s creativity to shine. So, relax and enjoy the Halloween festivities with your little one, knowing that their costume is a simple yet spectacular hit. Happy Halloween!
