5 items or less – easy Halloween costume ideas for kids

Pumpkins, apple cider, and spiders – oh,my!

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, but the planning of events and costumes starts to happen in July,because if your kids are like mine, they change their minds A LOT. We usually start out with being a princess, then a llama, a giraffe, a pirate, a pirate princess, a banana, and finally back to a princess.

With all of these changes, I like to have some quick costume ideas ready on hand that take 5 items or less. All of these kids costumes can be made with things that you probably already have at home — things like balloons, electrical tape, duct tape, and sponges.  And because they’re such easy Halloween costume ideas, they’re also a great way to get your kids involved in the process while having fun and being creative — Mommy win!
