22 Best Family Halloween Costumes to Try in 2023
Here’s the perfect costume to celebrate Halloween and the fall season. Mom and Dad can dress up as graham crackers (use brown foam and yarn to DIY it!). The kids can dress up as marshmallows and chocolate bars. We love that they decorated their wagon to look like a bonfire.
2. Sugar Skull Family
This sugar skull family costume is more elaborate, but so worth it. You’ll need a few guitars, sugar skull makeup and skeleton jumpsuits. You can wear clothes from your closet, or head to the thrift store to find the perfect attire for your costume.
3. Troll Family
Looking for costumes that are a bit freakier? This family dressed up as characters from Beetle Juice, and the parents look horrifying. To recreate their spooky costumes, you can find Adam and Barbara masks online. The little ones can dress as Beetlejuice and Lydia.
5. Home Alone
If you’re looking for a super simple but fun costume idea, dress up as the characters from Home Alone.
Mom and Dad can dress up as Marv and Harry, and the little one can dress up as Kevin. For Harry’s costume, glue some feathers to a beanie. For Marv, you’ll need makeup to recreate the iron burn on his forehead. A little beanie and a red sweater will help the little one look like Kevin.
