I am having the hardest time this year getting my tweens to decide what they would like to be for Halloween. Don't they realize that a Mom needs some time to pull this stuff together? Sheesh! I spent some time searching and pinning ideas this weekend, in the hopes to encourage them to choose something. So far I've not yet been successful- but maybe this post on Halloween costumes for tweens will help to inspire your own kids!
Here are 10 awesome Halloween costumes for tweens that you can make at home!
Allison from All The Boys has a bunch of cool ideas on her site for tween boys- but my favorite is this stick figure!
This spider costume from Make It and Love It is gorgeous- and not too complicated to pull off.
This skeleton idea was posted on Coolest Homemade Costumes- and is simple enough that the kids can make the skeleton shirt themselves.
I love this idea for an iPhone costume! Created by UnschoolPlus.
Of course, I am partial to this Skittles vending machine costume that Grandpa Rowley created for my son Spencer!
And this adorable Angry Birds costume he made for Kyle…
Not to mention this Jack in the Box costume…. sigh…. so sad that none of these cardboard creations survived the move to our new home!
I love this Instagram costume idea for the more tech-savvy tween (courtesy of Thirty Handmade Days)…
And this cool hashtag costume from Kristen Duke Photography!
I think my youngest might go for this Minecraft costume (created by Cute As A Fox).
