Halloween costumes are so much more fun when the whole family gets involved! With creative group costumes, Halloween can be fun for kids and parents alike. Families can dress up together for the spooky holiday by taking inspiration from pop culture, books, and even candy. All that’s required is an eye for coordination and a bit of creativity. Here are a few fun family Halloween costume ideas.

Dress up as the characters from this classic Dr. Suess children’s series—your mother will not mind at all if you do. In fact, she’s probably the one coordinating this family affair. For an instantly adorable group idea, get the kids matching Thing One and Thing Two costumes. Then, dress up Dad as the mischievous Cat in the Hat himself. All Mom needs is a smart work dress to play the role of the unsuspecting mother who was out for the day.

Tacos make everything better…but who knew that they could also make everything cuter? While anyone can take on the roles of taco, avocado, and hot sauce, of course, the avocado is a perfect option for expectant moms. Fashion the fruit out of cardboard, paint it two shades of green, and cut out holes to accommodate your face and baby belly. Grab a festive taco costume for your partner and a Sriracha chili sauce tee and green cap for your little one, and you’re all set for a fiesta!

You can even DIY your own costume for Marty. All you need are jeans, a denim shirt, an orange puffer vest, and a skateboard. Time-traveling DeLorean not required.
If you have a new little one in your family, this costume is a hilariously punny way to introduce him or her to Halloween—and you don’t even have to dress Baby up! All you have to do is cut arm-holes in two empty ten-pound ice bags and stuff them with tissue paper or other clear trash bags to make it look like they’re filled with ice. Just make sure the word “Ice” is visible on both bags! Wear some shades, too, if you so desire (bonus points for putting tiny shades on Baby!).
