Funny DIY Kid Costumes for Halloween

    Costumes are a great way to help your kid express their funny bone, dream alter-ego, and make-believe. Professional parent tip: stock your dress-up bin with costumes and props. The day after Halloween is the perfect time to pick capes, wigs, characters, and props up for cheap.

    We took a cruise around online and chose a few of our favorite funny kid costumes. These are great for Halloween, theme-days at school, or just for fun. Your kids are funny! Help them dress up!

    These costumes are cute, fun and easy to DIY with some items at home and maybe a special accessory or two to really make the look complete.
