Costumes: Babies & Kids

Skip the Halloween costume store and dress your little one in a Halloween costume you make yourself. We have countless ideas for homemade Halloween costumes for kids of all ages (from babies and toddlers to elementary school-age kids), including projects that require little to no sewing and costume ideas for a group of kids. Our easy-to-make kids' Halloween costumes are creative takes on classic ideas -- turn your kid into a rock star, artist, mad scientist, and more with just a few simple steps. If you want to fashion a creative costume (and have a bit of time to sew), check out more Halloween kids' costumes, where we show you how to sew cute and clever costumes for your little ones, including an ice cream cone costume, a baby bird costume, and a candy machine costume. For tiny toddlers, our baby mermaid costume is perfect for anyone who wants to live under the sea. If you're still looking for kids' costume ideas, we have detailed instructions for any costume you or your child can think up, including a construction costume, an adorable bird costume, and a caveman costume.
