Halloween is quickly approaching and it's hard to find wholesome family friendly Halloween costumes, especially for women.
Most of the costumes are a bit too sexy for the family events we attend and I'm not a big fan of the scary or gross side of Halloween for kids.
For our family of three I have thought about a knife, fork and spoon, Wizard of Oz - Lion, Scarecrow, Tin-man, or mild mannered skeletons (black sweatshirt and pants with cartoony bones painted on them).
What have you come up with? Can't wait to hear your ideas!
I like the Wizard of Oz theme. I was always in to scary costumes with my kids but there are some others that can be fun and easy to do (also, I prefer makeup over any masks - it's amazing how a bit of makeup can change a whole look):
one year my son went as Davy Crocket
Any kind of animal or fairy or princess
Sesame Street characters (those can be relatively easy to put together)
Harry Potter stuff?
Renaissance Costumes (peasants or royalty)
Superhero costumes (though any girl superhero costume might be too sexy for a little girl)
