I know we are a little ways away from Halloween yet but do you think I can stop thinking about what I want to dress Leo up as this year?! NOPE! Last year we had the cutest freakin’ costume (well, I liked it … maybe not so much Justin and Nacho … lol) and I really want to do something fun for the whole family again but I can’t figure out what the heck to do that won’t suck up a lot of time! So I’ve been cruising a few sites to see what was out there and there are a few good ideas floating around. I mean, I really WANT to make a costume for him but let’s be real … WHEN?! When am I going to do that?! LOL!!! I want something EASY!!
As I was poking around a few sites it dawned on me that it’s probably not just me already thinking about costumes, there are probably a lot of other mamas out there starting to toss some ideas around so I thought it would be fun to share some ideas with you that are super simple ways to pull off costumes for your babes that don’t require a lot of brainpower … time … and money! So here we go!
Sometimes all you need is a cute mask and comfy clothes for a costume. I think most toddlers find masks to be the most fun … or face paint for that matter! But some masks are pretty darn cute these days and some of the ones linked below even come with a built-in noise-maker … how perfect is that?!
Talk about a win-win and total mom hack here … but seriously, the pj’s these days could totally pass for a costume … some even glow in the dark which is great for safety as well … annnnd they’re all ready for bed once they come home! LOL!!!
Comfy (Pre-made) Costumes
There are some really cute costumes out there that are affordable, can be used for more than one year and are freakin cute!! Some of the options below can even be personalized with your toddler’s name, such as the chef, and the veterinarian and the train engineer … I mean … that alone is just adorable and worth the money! LOL!
Some toddlers may not even like dressing up quite yet so accessories may be a simple and fun option, such as a crazy wig, a cute headband, mini witch hats or fake glasses … hey, it’s the thought that counts, right??
I mean, just like the PJ idea … this is seriously easy peasy … toss on a Halloween graphic tee and some pants or leggings for the girls and you are out the door! LOL!
