Just because babies may not be ready to ingest all of the sugar-filled loot they collect on October 31 doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to participate in Halloween festivities. If spending a small fortune on a pint-sized costume seems silly to you consider these ideas for low cost baby Halloween costumes.
Use What You Have Anyone who has a baby probably has a drawer full of snapsuits. Turn your one-piece rompers into adorable costumes using items you probably already have around the house. Read through easy instructions for creating a tiny witch or Sasquatch costume at PBS.org.
Find DIY Inspiration
An octopus? Baby aerobics instructor? Or maybe a tiny burrito? Your baby will be adorable in any costume so narrowing down the choices can be tough. Sift through some easy DIY inspiration at DisneyBaby.com and perhaps one costume will jump out at you.
If baby doesn’t mind shopping for looks off the clearance rack head to PartyCity.com. Baby costumes including a teeny tiger and characters from the Backyardigans are just $5.
Use Coupon Codes
If your baby would rather go as a Business Executive than a super hero or a police officer instead of an elaborate little lion you can score a costume for less than $10 at Diapers.com. Plus, if you’re a first-time customer at Diapers.com save another 10% off baby’s costume with code OHBABY10.
Since most babies don’t spend a lot of time in their Halloween costumes, you can swap like-new looks with other parents. If you’re in Canada, be sure to check out listings for organized costume swaps at costumeswapdaycanada.com. Otherwise, organize one at your workplace, school or church and baby will be looking great for less this Halloween.
