4 Creative Halloween Costume Ideas for Kids of All Ages

Halloween is a time for fun and creativity. Whether you choose to dress your children as their favourite characters or give them a creative theme, Halloween can be a great opportunity to show off your child's imagination and personality. Here are some tips on how to come up with creative costumes that kids will love wearing:

Strawberry shortcake

You can make a strawberry shortcake costume for your child by making a small hat out of construction paper and attaching it to the top of the head. Then have them wear a pink dress, add some pink tights and shoes and then put on some white ruffled socks. You can also use makeup to draw freckles on their face.


While this DIY costume is simple, it will likely take a few weeks of preparation. First, you will need to create the ice cream cone out of cardboard and paint it with edible food colouring. The child's face should be painted to look like an ice cream treat as well. You may also want to provide your child with some kid wellies that they can wear with their popsicle outfit.

Stick figure family

The stick figure family is an easy costume to make. You'll need a piece of cardboard cut into the shape of a stick, two paper plates (one for the head and another for the torso), two paper towel rolls (for the legs), yarn or string (for hair and bow tie), and twine (for belt).

To finish your creation, glue the stick to one of the plates to make it look like he's standing up. Then glue him on top of his family with their arms outstretched. Take another plate then cut out holes where you want eyes so you can put them on top of each person's head. Finally, add details like buttons made from yarn at different places on each person in your family so they can express themselves.

Olaf from Frozen

Olaf is a great costume for kids. He's adorable, and the theme song will get stuck in your head all day long. If you have a princess fan in the house, they'll love dressing up as Elsa or Anna from Frozen.

Firstly, you will need to pick up some hat foam from your local craft store to create Olaf's signature headpiece. 

Secondly, trace around two large circles on one piece of foam, then cut those circles out so you have two pieces of identical size with holes in the centre. 

Thirdly, cut another circle that's slightly smaller than these two pieces combined and place it on top of them so that it creates a dome-shaped structure when placed atop them (this will be his actual head). 

Fourthly, take some hot glue and use it to attach all three pieces together at their edges so they form one piece similar to what was seen on the screen. 

Once this is done, take some more hot glue and dab it into all four corners of each hole left by removing those initial two circles. So that they become filled with glue when putting this final step together with all four sides connected directly together through these small openings created during its creation process.


We hope that this list has helped you find something special for your little one. But don’t stop there. After all, there are so many things kids can dress up as on Halloween night—from characters in their favourite books and movies (or yours) to animals they love. You can even get creative with their outfits and make them match your own outfit or family theme if you wish. Just remember to have fun with it when creating those memories with your child.
