Halloween is getting closer! If you and your kids are planning to head out into your neighborhood in costumes this year, you won’t be alone!
Over 40 million kids will go treat-or-treating this year according to U.S. Census Bureau, and that even doesn’t include the parents that will be joining them. That’s a lot of Halloween costumes to compete with. And naturally, many of us will end up in the same looks which can get a little confusing.
Mommy and me or family costumes not only make Halloween more entertaining, but it is also a great way to set your family apart. Plus, it will probably make it easier for you to find your kids in the sea of trick-or-treaters! And you might even score more candy - hopefully, some healthier candies too - as a unified group. I mean, who wouldn’t want a cute family of bears to show up at their door?
Dressing alike may have seemed corny to us before we became parents, but group costumes can become a fun tradition for the whole family. And there are plenty of ideas and options for group costumes that don’t require a ton of effort. You can make creating your own family Halloween costumes a DIY project that everyone does together. Or, you can just buy them online - no judgment.
