Have you been looking for a way to make Halloween more fun for your entire family? Are you the sort of family who love going out together and having fun? If your answer is ‘yes’ to any one of those questions, here’s a fun idea to make Halloweens more fun for your family. This Halloween, choose a theme that both you and your kids like. Then, go out and buy costumes that match that theme. Since you will be looking for costumes in adult and children’s sizes, it is better that you look in a place that has a large collection of costumes in both sizes.
Once you have gotten the right costumes, the fun part can begin. There’s nothing like the whole family dressing up to match each other. Let your imagination run wild when it comes to the theme.
Cartoons are always a popular theme, so you can choose to dress up as Loony Tunes characters. There are so many characters to choose from that you can focus on one set. For example, you can decide to dress up like the villains. So you can choose from Yosemite Sam, Wiley Coyote or even Marvin the Martian. Or you can all choose to dress up as one character. The entire family can go out dressed like Bugs or Daffy. The fun is in watching the same character take on different sizes and shapes.
Or you can choose a fairy tale theme. With so many fairy tales around, you can easily turn your entire family in to a family from a fairy tale. So the parents can dress up liked kings and queens and the children can dress up like princes and princesses. If you have a newborn or very young daughter, you can also dress her up as an adorable little fairy.
Accessories are very important when it comes to dressing up in Halloween costumes. So make sure you have the right ones when you choose your costumes, especially if they do not come with accessories of their own. For example, a generic princess costume will usually have a tiara but you can make it extra special by adding a magic wand to it. In fact, you can reinvent a costume by adding accessories. So if you already have a princess costume, you can add a wand and wings to make it a fairy princess costume. Similarly, if you have a pirate costume, you can get a fake hook and become the ‘Hook’ from Peter Pan.
When it comes to choosing a theme for the family, there’s a lot of room for innovation. So you can also make do with the costumes that you already have. The best thing about choosing a family theme is that you will never run out of ideas and you can always reinvent an old theme. So not only do you make Halloween a fun family activity, you also make the planning part much easier.
