Didn’t have time to pick up a Halloween costume for your kid this year? Don’t panic. First of all, it’s a scientific fact that anyone under the age of 12 is probably too distracted by giant mounds of candy to care about what they’re wearing. Secondly, there’s a simple solution. Here are 13 last-minute costume ideas for kids that are ridiculously easy to pull off.
No sewing involved.
All you need for this adorable costume are overalls, a yellow shirt and hat, and some black gloves.
Does your little guy own a pair of superhero pajamas? Put ’em on underneath his Sunday best and there you have it—a superhero in disguise.
White clothes + electrical tape + a paper plate + marker = hilarious (and super easy) DIY Halloween costume.
The only time it’s OK for your kid to dig around your makeup bag. Red lipstick, brown eye shadow, face powder and hair mousse should do the trick.
Grab all the tinfoil you have to fashion a hat, then tape some string to make a strap and stick a big Hershey’s sign on top. Done.
Time to bring out the Little League gear. Make it more Halloween-y by adding some scary scars and zombie makeup.
Tear an old sheet intro strips, tie around your kid and there you have it—a totally spooky (and adorable) costume.
Oh go on, let your kid wear her prettiest dress for Halloween. Team with a tiara and some glitter makeup for a happily ever after.
Hey, it’s a classic for a reason. Grab a white bed sheet, cut out two holes for eyes and you’re ready for a night of trick-or-treating.
A black tee and hat for Wayne; a blonde wig, drumsticks and checkered shirt for Garth. “Party time, excellent!”
Tinfoil to the rescue yet again. Cover a box in foil, add some dials and there you have it. Or grab some green makeup from the drugstore to create a spooky monster.
Draw on an eye patch, grab a stripy shirt and you’re good to go.
