Oh snap – how has October rolled around so quickly? If you’re looking at your invitations to family Halloween parties and wondering if there’s enough time to order something online, or quickly pull something together for the kids, take a deep breath – we’ve got you covered.
Here are eight cute, tropical weather and budget-friendly ideas you can pull together after the kids have gone to bed (or maybe over a weekend):
Frida FTW (that’s For The Win!)
Flower crown, colourful clip-on earrings, shawl and iconic unibrow – who wouldn’t love to talk art with a little Frida Kahlo at a party?
If you’re low on juice but still want a costume that’s bound to elicit a couple of “awws”, whip up a balloon barbell to keep your little one’s game strong.
What a grape idea
The upside of this costume is that it’s adorable and you’d probably get some kudos for your ingeniousness. The downsides are your kid will have to spend all night standing … and you’d have to figure out how to secure all the balloons on. (It’s also probably not great for the environment.)
Let’s go Up!
Who doesn’t love a good Russell?
If you grew up reading Enid Blyton books, look no further than your kitchen cupboard for some costume inspiration for your kids’ Halloween. Be prepared for a whole lot of crashing and bashing with this Mr Saucepan costume!
Big hair, don’t care
If you’ve got a little more time up your sleeve and are handy with a glue gun, your little Trolls fan would love the chance to have hair like Poppy’s!
(Get a little) Mr Messy
Got a large box lying around somewhere? Turn it into your kid’s next Halloween outfit – pick your Mr Man or Little Miss and paint away! This one is a fun one you can involve your kids with.
Simple and yet so darn cute, this little snail outfit will take just some brown kraft paper and bits and bobs you probably already have around your house!
The Addams Family!
A classic that is instantly recognisable and pretty easy to pull off, this children’s Halloween outfit option also allows mum, dad and even baby to join in the fun. Your child may also have fun not smiling for once, like Wednesday Addams!
Man (Boy) of Steel
A tad easier than the full-on Superman outfit, this sweet lil outfit will be something you can whip up in a jiffy if you’re really out of time and ideas. Just make sure you nail the look with some slicked back hair!
