Toddler Halloween Costume Ideas

Toddlers will want their toddler Halloween costume too, so they can be part of the Halloween action along with the rest of the family, even though they may not yet be ready to go treat or tricking or to stay up late for the Halloween costume party.

Halloween is a time for older children to dress up in fun spooky costumes, and go trick or treating. Being cute is no longer on their minds - they want to curdle your blood and send a chill up and down your spine. Your toddler, on the other hand, is likely to still find the images of ghosts and witches very scary. They need to be taken care of during Halloween, to make sure they do not become frightened of the dark or have bad dreams because of the escapades during Halloween of the older children.

Most toddlers have a favorite television cartoon, movie or story book character. Small children get a lot more pleasure from dressing up as a familiar character they know and love. They are still young enough to like to be praised for looking cute, and are more likely to get a lot of fun out of acting out the role of their favorite character than out of trying to be an evil witch or goblin.

Favorite characters are changing all the time, depending on what programs and movies are showing. While you may be thinking about the old standbys of Superman, Batman, Mickey Mouse, Scooby Doo, Spiderman and the like, your toddler may have a totally different perception about what characters are "hot" right now. You need to be guided by which television, cartoon, movie or story book characters make your toddler's eyes light up with excitement. Discover the right character, and you are assured of success, even if the costume is mediocre.

Costumes are readily available to buy or rent for most of the leading cartoon and movie characters. The quality varies, from low cost plastic outfits through to expensive professionally detailed costumes. Especially with toddlers you need to be mindful of safety considerations, such as avoiding inflammable clothing, when making your costume choices. With lots of candles, and all the other things you have to do at Halloween, you do not want to take unnecessary risks that your toddler could get into trouble when you are not looking.

A problem with renting is that the costume must be returned. If your toddler falls in love with a well chosen costume you may find this could become a difficulty for you. 

Homemade toddler Halloween costumes are a lower cost option. Many of the favorite cartoon characters are animals, and make popular Halloween costume choices for toddlers. One-piece suits, especially those that come with a hood, make an ideal starting point for a toddler animal suit. Add a tail and ears, get busy with some fabric paint or a marker pen, apply some face paint, and soon you will have a cat, rabbit, lion, or whatever you want. If you can find a large soft toy for a low price at a garage sale, you may be able to remove the tail, ears, whiskers, paws and other parts, and sew them onto your toddler's suit to create a near instant and very successful costume. Chances are the costume will remain your toddler's favorite outfit long after Halloween.
