As kids get a little older and develop their own unique personalities, they sometimes want less parental involvement in playtime, advice, or even school work. The same can be said for Halloween costumes. However, sometimes mom or dad can be full of cool surprises and ideas. If your little one seems stumped on what to wear for Halloween, toss a few ideas from our list their way. With our creative suggestions, they’ll be sure to love at least one!

What little boy or girl wouldn’t love to be a wizard like Harry Potter or Mickey Mouse in Fantasia? Use an old robe, put some shiny star cut outs on it, and be sure to add the point wizard hat, and you’re set! Complete the costume with a wizard staff or cane, or combine the costume with Laser Peg’s dragon set for extra theatrics!

An astronaut costume is great for any child who’s interested in space or aliens. A cute helmet can be easily made with paper mache, and you can complement the outfit with some rain boots for a pair of moon boots. For the actual costume, you can buy a ready-to-go astronaut outfit, or make one yourself from using white or orange clothes. You can make up some NASA patches to clip on them as well. For that extra bang, have them carry the Laser Peg spaceship kit as they trick-or-treat. It’ll make the experience all the more exciting to them!

Zombies are a creepy phenomena that have exploded in popularity over the past few years. If your child loves these pop culture figures instead of cowering in fear of them, a zombie costume is the way to go. This is a great way to use a few clothes that they’ve outgrow or are about to outgrow. Make the clothes tattered or dirty, and find some shoes that are equally as threadbare. From here, you can go crazy with the zombie makeup and be as gory or as mild as you want. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube for you to learn from.

If you want a costume specifically for boys, a prince costume could be perfect for your own little Prince Charming. Try a store-bought costume, or if you feel up to it, try your hand at making one! There are plenty of step-by-step guides online for you to follow if you’re feeling crafty.
