How To Make Fun Toddler Costumes For Halloween

Sep 4, 2008
Not all Halloween festivities can be participated in by toddlers. That does not mean, however, that toddlers have to be completely uninvolved in the fun. They are sure to want to wear their own Halloween costume, even if they are not able to go trick-or-treating.

Remember that toddlers tend to be sensitive to a lot of the scary sights of Halloween. Although older kids love the thought of terrifying their neighbors with gruesome or spooky costumes, toddlers could be really frightened by seeing such things. That means that parents need to make sure that their toddlers are well cared for while participating in Halloween events.

Most toddlers have a favorite television cartoon, movie or story book character. Small children get a lot more pleasure from dressing up as a familiar character they know and love. They are still young enough to like to be praised for looking cute, and are more likely to get a lot of fun out of acting out the role of their favorite character than out of trying to be an evil witch or goblin.

There are some characters that seem to be rather timeless favorites of many toddlers. For example, Mickey Mouse, Scooby Doo, Superman, Spiderman, and Batman will always be popular with young kids. Your toddler, though, might have a different character in mind, depending on what happens to be popular at the moment.

Even if the costume itself is not of the highest quality, your toddler will love it if it allows them to become one of their favorite characters. That means that, in order to choose correctly, you need to pay attention to which characters really fascinate your children when you read them stories or when they watch television and movies.

Toddler costumes of popular characters are not difficult to find at all, both for sale and rent. The price of the costume will depend on its quality. You can find cheap plastic costumes as well tremendously detailed ones that are less cheap. While trying to decide which costume is best for your toddler, you also need to think about which costumes will be safest. Stay away from outfits that are flammable, for example.

With lots of candles, and all the other things you have to do at Halloween, you do not want to take unnecessary risks that your toddler could get into trouble when you are not looking.

A problem with renting is that the costume must be returned. If your toddler falls in love with a well chosen costume you may find this could become a difficulty for you.
