30 Mind-blowing Halloween costumes for kids

Clever, cool, and cute.

October 20, 2016

As a kid, the sweetest thing about Halloween was the candy. Chocolate, specifically. But the second best part was brainstorming costume ideas with my mom. While she always asked if I wanted to be a pumpkin or Raggedy Ann, I always opted for to be a ballerina, a vampire, or even a ladybug.

If you’re thinking of creating your child’s costume or need some inspiration for a family ensemble, check out these awesome, fun, and way-clever ideas. A few, like the Futuristic Ballerina even incorporate littleBits – so you can trick (or treat!) your kid into learning while they make a cool costume.
