5 Timeless Costume Ideas for Young Kids

        Culture | Halloween


Younger kids will have a lot of fun fighting off the bad guys on Halloween in their super cool superhero costumes. While you could shell out the extra cash for branded characters, such as Batman and Power Rangers, a custom costume doesn't take special powers to construct. A sweat suit emblazoned with the tiny superhero's unique logo (a lighting bolt, starburst or the like) comprises a bulk of the costume. Then, kids just need a cape and a cloth mask to complete the ensemble. A brightly colored construction paper cutout decorated with the superhero logo can be taped onto an everyday belt to create a utility belt.
