Halloween gives kids a chance to break out of their normal routine and have some fun, but having a great costume is essential. If you are a crafty mom, you can always make a homemade Halloween costume. I am neither crafty nor do I have the time to make a homemade costume but if your a busy mom and time is of the premium there are some great and affordable Halloween costumes out there, many that will also hold up to use as dress up clothes after the holiday is over.
The Construction Worker Role Play Set from Melissa and Doug is machine washable and the vest includes reflective material, perfect for a night of trick-or-treating.
The set includes a tool belt, a yellow hard hat, goggles, a hammer, a saw, and a name tag and is a great addition to your pretend play collection after Halloween.
Your daughter may not know who she is with this snazzy Wonder Woman costume but she’ll be sure to melt the heart of all of mommy’s friends who grew up with this classic heroine.
This costume may be best for warmer climates since it leaves the arms and most of the legs bare and it doesn’t lend itself to layering clothes.
Aeromax has a great line of affordable dress up clothes for preschoolers called My 1st Career Gear, which includes this great firefighter costume. The velcro closures make it easy for even the youngest trick-or-treaters to get their costume on and off (and use as dress up long after Halloween is over).
Every costume in the My 1st Career Gear comes with a great price tag and extensive detail has been given to make sure that these costumes are as close to the real thing as possible.
This Twister costume is one that you could probably make on your own if you have an extra game laying around and are feeling crafty, but again, it comes down to a time issue and if you have to go out and buy a game, the cost of the costume itself isn’t much more.
This is a very simple costume but it’s lightweight enough that you can wear it over other clothing for cold weather trick-or-treating or use as dress up clothes after the holiday.
Bewitched was always one of my favorites growing up so, even though I realize most little girls won’t recognize this character, I had to include it. The green sleeves add a stylish flair to the standard witch costume so even if your daughter
This great police officer costume from Young Heroes looks almost like the real thing and would be perfect for Halloween and beyond. This costume includes the shirt, pants, and hat (other accessories are sold separately) and is made from durable fabric so it will hold up to extended use.
