Fun Halloween Ideas for your Little Ones!
This is the cutest time of the year! All of the little pumpkins, princesses, and monsters running around with their baskets ready to be filled with candy. We know, it’s still September, but it’s never too early to start thinking about costumes! Especially ones that come in mini-size for your little ones.
Carving a Pumpkin!
We all love pumpkin carving! It’s a great way to get the family together and in the festive spirit. Instead of carving out some scary faces, you may want to try this! On a piece of blank white paper, stencil out your baby’s hands and feet. Tape the stencils you’ve created to the pumpkin using some clear tape in the position you like. Using a black sharpie, outline the hands and feet stencils and carve them out!
Babies look so cute in their costumes. Let’s face it, getting them all dressed up will be the best part of your day. Here are our top 5 baby costumes that will make every heart melt this Halloween!
This one is obvious. BUT, kids look cute as buttons when they walk around in their pumpkin costumes with a pumpkin basket surrounded by colourful fall leaves. The end result? Some AMAZING photos.
2. Despicable Me Minion
Just look at this photo. How cute is this kid?
3. Starbucks Drink
Seriously? This kid can’t be any cuter! Everybody loves caffeine and you love your kid just as much right?
4. Peas in a Pod
What do they say about twins? They’re like two peas in a pod? If you are raising twins, this costume idea is perfect for you and definitely something your twins will thank you for years later. Siblings have a very special connection. For twins, this connection is even stronger!
5. We all love TACOS
Your baby loves to crawl… It’s the number one way for them to get places and they’d like to keep crawling even on halloween. This taco costume will let them move and stay cute!
TRICK or TREAT? Maybe you should DITCH the candy!
Unless you have other little kids who want to go out for Halloween to fill their baskets with candy, you can use this time to raise funds for your favourite charity with your baby in tow. Some people also collect canned goods during this time to stock the shelves of local food banks who always get an influx of people coming to them for help during the start of the winter months.
If it’s your baby’s first Halloween, chances are they won’t be nibbling on the chocolate and candy. It’s a great chance for you and your friends to get together with your kids and make a difference in your community!
Take LOTS of Photos!
Baby’s first halloween is a big deal…. for the parents at least! Hey, you work hard to make sure your child gets everything they need. So it’s okay to to do something for yourself, even if it is dressing your baby in silly costumes, taking loads and loads of pictures, uploading them ALL to your Facebook, or Instagram and enjoying this moment with your young child. Don’t be embarrassed to go absolutely crazy with picture taking. It’s a once in a lifetime kind of thing!
After halloween is over and those costumes become dirty, don’t forget to get them professionally cleaned before you store them away until next year!
