The Cat in the Hat

Dress up as the characters from this classic 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. If it’s your first Halloween as a parent, you’ll go gaga over these sweet mommy-and-baby Halloween costume ideas.

Taco Tuesday with all the fixings

Taco Tuesday with all the fixings

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!

Grease is the word

Grease is the word

Are you hopelessly devoted to Sandy, Danny, Rizzo, and the rest of the Rydell High gang? Get your crew decked out in picture-perfect ’50s style with these ready-to-go Grease costumes. If you’ve got a particularly big family, this is a perfect choice: Just add more Pink Ladies and T-birds as needed. Complete the look with high ponytails for the girls and extra pomade for the boys. And don’t forget your shades!



Use your child’s favorite stackable toy as the creative inspiration behind this year’s costume extravaganza.

Jurassic Park

Jurassic Park

There’s a dinosaur on the loose—passerby will get a kick out of this paleontologist getup. Plus, the wagon is perfect for toting around your toddler after they get tuckered-out from trick-or-treating.



This coming-of-age baseball movie is as nostalgic as it gets, and now you get to pass down your love of the game to the next generation.

The Back to the Future cast

Travel back to the ’80s with these Back to the Future costumes that are instantly identifiable and oh-so-nostalgic. Dress up as Marty, Jennifer, and Doc Brown—with your littlest family member taking on the role of the eccentric scientist. Seriously, is there anything cuter than a pint-sized Doc with wild hair? 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.

Ice Ice Baby

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!).

Wizard of Oz
