Here is a list of 40 great family costume ideas that I found on various blogs and on Pinterest that you can do together.
Dressing up at Halloween is one of my favorite things to do. Getting the entire family involved with a theme is even better. We’ve only done one of these on the list but now that we have 4 members of the family we have more options. This list includes great ideas for any size family!
Pick a decade! A few years ago we went as 20’s style flapper. Any decade holds a fun set of costumes.
