Creative Halloween Costume Ideas for Siblings - Where the Wild Things Are

Need a Halloween costume idea for siblings? We’ve got tons of fun ideas to coordinate your whole crew!

Halloween may be all about the candy for your kids, but for us moms, can we admit that it’s one giant photo op (where your kids are actually excited to participate!)? And if you’ve got more than one child, they are a prime target for a fun themed costume where the sum is greater than the parts. We mean, what’s Batman without Robin, Ketchup without Mustard, or Milk without Cookies?

But we’re all busy mamas, and making our own DIY costumes takes time, energy and sewing skills that we often don’t have. That’s why we’re coming to your rescue with 40+ creative Halloween costume ideas for siblings that you can easily obtain with just one click. No trips to the craft store or needle threading required. And hey, if you’re handy enough to make something yourself (major kudos to you!), these ideas can serve as the inspiration for your DIY masterpiece.

Then all that’s left is taking that killer photo with your costume-clad children, happily smiling away. Happy Halloween to all!
