Coordinating Family Halloween Costume Ideas You Must Try This Year

Since we’re towards the end of September, Halloween is just around the corner. I know there are moms like me who already thought what their kids is going to be for Halloween as early as first or second quarter of the year (I don’t know for how long I can get away with it though). But for those of you who haven’t thought of yet what your little one is going to be this Halloween, then you’ve come to the right place. Today I’m going to share Halloween costume ideas for kids, as well as coordinating family Halloween costumes.

While I wish these commissions were enough to let me stay at home with my kids, they’re really for paying the fees to keep this site up and running. Thank you for your continued support!

Family Halloween Costume Ideas

There’s nothing more adorable than a family dressed up in coordinating Halloween costumes. I seriously didn’t have a thing for Halloween costumes before having kids but I find it so much fun wearing Halloween costumes with my kids when we go trick or treating. So I’ve rounded up 4 different family Halloween costume ideas for you to try with your little ones.

Monsters, Inc.

This Monsters, Inc. Halloween costume ideas are perfect for family of 3. Your daughter can be Boo and you, the parents, can be Sullivan and Mike. OR if you have a son, he can either be Sullivan or Mike, and Mommy can be Boo.

This was our costume when we went trick or treating the Halloween of 2015. Although it was just me and my daughter because Daddy had to stay at home with my son (he was just a month old then and I didn’t want him to catch any virus). I was able to find a Sullivan t-shirt (similar) from an Etsy shop. It was a practical choice for us because we still got to wear our costumes after Halloween. Shop some of my favorite Monsters Inc. costumes below.




Inside Out

This is probably one of my favorite family Halloween costume ideas simply because you wear actual clothes as a costume which you can still use even after Halloween so investing in any of these pieces isn’t such a waste. If you want to take it a bit further, go ahead and get yourselves some wigs to complete your look.

Addams Family

If you want to be traditional and stick with the black and white color scheme, this coordinating family Halloween costume idea is a perfect option for you. Just let your daughter wear a black tights underneath the white shirt collared onesie and black dress and she’s good to go; or let your son wear black shorts to go with the black and white striped t-shirt/onesie I’ve linked above.



Justice League

Because who doesn’t love to be a superhero even for just one day? I believe Justice League is perfect coordinating Halloween costume idea for that reason. And with Wonder Woman being released earlier recently (girl power), I think kids & moms would want to dress up as her! I know I probably would if I didn’t already have our Halloween costumes planned.

      Thank you! I’m glad you liked it. I liked the inside out costumes as well; we would probably do inside out this year if I haven’t decided yet which ones we’re going to be this Halloween.

    I love all of your ideas. And the fact the adults costumes aren’t necessarily all “costumes.” They are more practical and something we more than likely already have hanging in the closet!!

      Thank you; I’m glad you loved them. This is so true; and if we ever need to get something new for the “costumes”, we will be able to wear them even after Halloween.

      Lol! That would be so cute. My kids are too young yet to decide what they’re going to be for Halloween so I am taking advantage of it. 🙂 Thank you; I’m glad you loved it.

      Thank you! I couldn’t agree more. I do still have a few more years before my kids would want to decide for themselves so I am taking advantage of it. 🙂
