Kids Halloween Costumes That Will Scare The Pants Off You

Feb 26, 2008
The air gets crisp and the leaves turn color. Its fall! And every little kid anxiously anticipates the eve of the greatest candy haul of the year, Halloween! Yes, actually "Trick or Treating" is fun. But, the preparation is just as, if not more enjoyable. This is the time of year where kids are really allowed to be kids. Let your little one choose their kid's Halloween costume. It's the one night of the year where they can feel grown-up while acting very much like a kid.

Boys and girls running the streets for two hours decked out in their scariest and grossest of kids Halloween costumes is what makes Halloween exciting and fun. Allowing children to be children is what makes Halloween especially rewarding for parents. Nothing scares me more than a child dressed up as an adult the other 364 days of the year. Kid's Halloween costumes give kids a chance to break free from their stress and pretend to be anyone they wish.

The festive holiday, though scrutinized for its misinterpreted meanings, gives kids a chance to celebrate the firm and strong notion that things in this world are not always as they appear. By strapping your child into a classic vampire costume of the 1920s you are helping them to make peace with the monsters they think might be under their bed and simultaneously permitting them to stand out as an exceptional vampire.

These days, popular movies like Star Wars and Pirates of the Caribbean are spawning a new industry derived of creating costumes from those movies. You can even accessorize creatively by getting a sibling to come along as another of the characters (or, in the case of Pirates of the Caribbean, even as a parrot). Need to have a mate walk the plank? Mom or dad, go ahead and toil along behind Junior, the captain, on a rope as the prisoner just for the evening. Then your roles can go back to the ordinary and everyday parent-child setup right after the festivities are over.

It's healthy to create. Take advantage of the holiday and teach your children how to create. We all have an inherent sense, but creativity takes training and practice. Decide as a family on a theme and then everyone can create their own Halloween costume.

Of course you can decide to stay at home this Halloween. What ever you decide is entirely up to you. But, on the other hand, you can use this day to nurture and grow your child's creativity. Designing a child's Halloween costume is a fun thing for parents and children to do together. Of course you don't want to forget to carve the pumpkin!

If you do happen to buy your child's costume, start looking at least a month before Halloween makes its appearance. And even though children tend to change their minds a lot, you can impress upon your child the importance that this is a decision he or she will have to make for good once the costume is bought. Regardless, the perfect costume will make for the perfect day and make you a hero to your children, even after they have taken off their own superhero costumes. Edited by Glinda Zuladra
