Family-Friendly Group Costumes for Halloween
Does your whole family dress up for Halloween? It’s fun to pick a theme and give each family member a role to play! Here are a few ideas (with instructions!) for Family-Friendly Group Costumes for Halloween.
This caveman family of costumes from Andrea’s Notebook is great for changeable weather conditions – everyone can layer up if needed for cold weather! The loose-fitting faux fur tunics are easy to make with basic sewing skills.
Home Made Mimi started with 5 yards of felt and made a whole family of Matryoshka Russian nesting doll costumes with enough left over to make matching trick-or-treat bags! The sewing is easy, and these costumes are another good option if you need to wear warm layers under the cute stuff. The decorations are stitched on, but you could glue them – just don’t use a water-soluble glue if you expect rainy weather!
Do the Littles get tired going from door to door? See Vanessa Craft’s No-Sew Care Bear family includes a cloud costume for the little red wagon! It can haul kids or candy! And if the kids are riding, they can’t dash out into the street. Looks like a sweet ride to me!
Get ready for your mission to Mars with spray paint and duct tape! These space family costumes from Tell Love & Party are not last-minute throw-togethers, but they are pretty easy to construct. Just allow plenty of time to go through all the steps.
A monster family is about as classic as it comes for Halloween, and Tell Love & Party shows you how to make costumes for dad, mom and kid monsters. The instructions are all here for all four characters. And how cute is that baby bat?
Here’s a video that details how to make the mummy costume.
Sweet and simple! Packing boxes, paint and pillows have this family ready to become S’mores! (Mom must be the other graham cracker, but she’s busy with the camera.) This cute idea is from Movers Who Blog, and they tell you exactly what size boxes work best. A sweet group hug in the making!
