What’s the first thing you think of when you think of Halloween?

If you recall, I am “all set” with my kids’ Halloween costumes

Do you remember this list?

1. Determined with the kids what they want to be.

2. Confirmed with the kids what they want to be.

3. Argued with the kids about good ideas for their costumes.

4. Finalized with the kids that these indeed will be their costumes.

5. Called my mom to say, “Okay, this is what we’ve got!” and placed our order for their custom-made costumes. (I know. I’m totally spoiled! But I must tell you that there is no way to do a last minute costume. We have to be a month out! So technically, we were cutting it close!)

Now, I realize that not everyone is as blessed as I am with my “own personal tailor,” so let me give you my two cents about Halloween costumes
 
1. First and foremost, half the fun of Halloween costumes is deciding what you want to be.  Start dreaming with your kids about what it would be fun to be.  If you don’t have kids, you can start dreaming for your own adult Halloween costumes.  This is one day that kids can play pretend and it’s okay!
 
2.  Try to make the costumes as easy as possible.  Hats and bright colored shirts and creative word plays are LOTS of fun.
 
3.  If all else fails or there is a certain character or costume you are looking for, check out websites like Halloween Mart.
