Fun Halloween Costumes for Kids
Part of the fun of this autumn holiday is getting to dress up and pretend to be something magical or out of the ordinary. Let your imagination and creativity free with these ideas for fun Halloween costumes for kids.
Garden Fairy: You can go the traditional route by choosing a cute dress, or jazz things up by letting your little fairy dress in jeans and tennis shoes. Who says a garden fairy can’t be modern? Add a simple ring of flowers on their head and a small pair of wings on their back to create an adorable garden fairy that is sure to charm everyone they meet.
Artistic Flair: Bring out the little artist in your child by letting them wear a beret and paint splattered smock. Let them carry a paint palette with a decorated paint brush.
Superhero: You can’t go wrong with the old favorite superhero costume. Make things more interesting by letting your child choose their superpower to center their costume around. If their superpower is speed, add little wings to their shoes and wristbands. Or, focus on cape decoration and really jazz things up with colors and images.
History Lesson: If you’re feeling extremely creative and want to make an impression, look to history for your child’s costume idea. Bring glam back by dressing your daughter in a cute black dress and a vintage hair-do. Don’t forget to add the bling! Look to your favorite old movies or moments in history for inspiration.

Fall and Halloween Decorations
The warm colors of the autumn season are inviting and bring a sense of calm to homes. There are easy ways to bring those colors in with creative decorating ideas. You can’t go wrong with making the outside of your home more appealing during this season. Adding a few small pumpkins to steps is one way to add color that is inexpensive. With the variety of sizes and colors available, you don’t have to settle for the ordinary orange pumpkin. Pumpkins don’t have to be carved with a spooky theme. Carve leaves or hearts in them for a different theme idea.
Add a festive wreath to your door or a decorative raven on top of your mailbox. Inside your home, fill glass jars with yellow, orange, black, or white candies for an easy autumn look. Use a black photo frame and some yarn to create a spider web box. Add small spiders to the webs before hanging the frame on the wall. Purchase large letters from the craft store and paint them to create word art. For example: BOO can be easily created with letters and black paint for a cute display.
