Halloween is just around the corner and a lot of us are already planning and preparing our fun and exciting costume ideas.

Naturally, children are excited to show off their costumes to their neighbors and friends. Costumes can be as simple as dressing up as their favourite characters, to make them a little unique and eye-catching you can individualise the costume to your child’s personality. To make things easier you can come up with a ‘theme’ as a family so that you don’t have to think up of different ideas for each and everybody.

So that your costume preparation is a little less painful here are a few ideas for inspiration, starting from babies, toddlers, preschoolers and some for the whole family.
