Best Halloween Costumes For Kids 2024 - Girl & Boy Costume Ideas Popular

Does anyone else totally stress out from about mid-summer until the week before Halloween when either trying to figure out what your little ones will dress up as or having to listen to your kids change their mind thousands of times up until the main trick-or-treating event?  Sigh.  There are so many great options out there, but it can really be overwhelming and pretty stressful!

Quite honestly we don’t love spending a ton of money and, as time goes on, it seems like more options are getting a bit more risque, especially when it comes to options for girls.  Well, times are changing so we wanted to recommend some really cool options for both girls and boys that are totally age-appropriate, fun and, in some cases, a teachable moment. We totally understand that many people are looking for girl or boy specific costumes, but in the spirit of total inclusion all of these costumes are for any kid.  Be you.
