It’s almost time for Halloween! Have you planned your costumes yet? These Family Halloween Costume Ideas that we have rounded up might just help.
We love a good costume theme for the whole family to follow through with. It can be such a fun way of celebrating the occasion together. Have a family brainstorming session and see what everyone comes up with. If you need some inspiration, show them this post to start get those wheels turning.
Family Halloween Costume Ideas
We’ll be honest – some of these costume ideas are a little more elaborate than others. But in many cases, they are quick and easy to put together. Be open to using them as inspiration and try to use what you have around the house. Your costumes don’t have to be perfect renditions of the characters – but using this inspiration can help you use what’s on hand to transform it into a nod to the characters that everyone will love.
This is a fun idea – we especially love that it allows you to incorporate someone who’s pregnant so easily!
Another one for the Disney fans, your family can dress up as their favorite Beauty and the Beast characters!
Or how about Frozen characters? Check out the parts of the costumes made from simple clothing you might have on hand already.
Pro tip: Check out thrift shops too for inexpensive pieces you can use in creating your DIY Halloween costumes.
These costumes look like a little more work, but boy oh boy, are they ever fun for an outer space-loving family!
The wigs are the key here. For the rest, find appropriately-colored outfits to go with their characters.
A classic! Choose your favorite classic Halloween characters and head out to spook the neighborhood!
SO simple! Buy some animal print fleece and cut simple tunics to go over your clothing. You can sew them, tie them, or use glue to put them together.
Any Baby Shark fans out there? These easy upgrades to basic hoodies will turn you and your family into the shark family. Be prepared for people to sing to you as you go trick-or-treating.
Again, a few more elaborate pieces but once more, the wigs really make the looks. You could simplify these (even without the King’s chest, he’d still look like the king!) as needed.
This is so clever! A really simple group look that will have everyone smiling.
Ever want to run away and join the circus? Now you can and take your whole family along!
We love this idea for a large family. Each one can choose their favorite color and you’re good to go. They’re so easy to make too!
If you have Mario fans in your family, grab some cardboard boxes and whip up these easy and adorable costumes.
If you’re big Hocus Pocus fans like we are, this one would be so much fun! Can you name all the characters pictured below?
This super cute family costume idea even incorporates the dog into the fun!
Another costume idea that is incredibly easy and could be used for a large family! Simply pick a different shape of pasta for each person. Or many one of them could be a can of sauce?
If you’re going to make this one, we suggest starting early. It’s going to be a bit of work, but it’s so worth it!
Again, this is another one that is a good jumping-off point. You could add in other family members to represent seed packets (easy piece of cardboard project!), flowers, vegetables, and so on.
Once you find the perfect hat, you’re ready to go with this fun Peter Pan family. This would be a good one to incorporate a dog into as well.
School supplies? What a creative idea. Other ideas to add: ruler, crayons (box or individual), how about a kid dressed like a student, backpack and all?
Here’s another one for the traditionalists out there. Just be careful with the ghost to make sure you can see well and that it isn’t a tripping hazard.
Care Bears Countdown! Pick your favorite bears and add a few details to some cozy onesies. Done and adorable!
What kid doesn’t want to be a superhero? Choose your favorite colors and create simple superhero costumes for everyone.
If you love Chick-Fil-A as much as we do, this is the perfect family of costumes for you. So simple to make – these could easily be whipped up last minute too!
Here’s another take on the outer space costumes, maybe a little easier and quicker to make than the others. You could even each pick your favorite planet to highlight.
Are you a Stranger Things fan? This likely wouldn’t mean much to the little kids (I mean, come on. WE have nightmares from it!), but with older kids or teens this could be a great idea.
If you love sushi, you might as well let the world know with your Halloween costumes. Besides, this is a perfect idea for a baby too small to walk around on their own.
Ha! Wear this one and see just how many people get it without any explanation. Works well for a family of 3.
For a parent and baby in a carrier, this is ideal. Want to add other family members? How about some fish, a sea horse, coral, shells, maybe another diver?
Kids may not get the reference but they will have tons of fun dressing up like dragons!
Well, we hope this got those creative juices flowing! We can’t wait to see your family all dressed up for Halloween. BOO!
