What to Be for Halloween

Published about 1 year ago by Alexis Alexander

“A ghost, a witch, a spider….a superhero, a turtle, a zombie cow….a dinosaur, a pirate with a parrot...a unicorn or a cat, a zombie princess, a black bat…”

So many costumes, but only one Hallowe’en night! What will it be - the witch or the bat? These are just some of the things Annie and her friends consider dressing up as in What to be for Hallowe’en. There are so many choices - some spooky, some cute - but what will it be on October 31st?

If you have kids, we’re sure you’ve heard a list just as long as the one above. It may even change from day to day! One moment, they want to be a pirate and the next, it’s a kitten or a “creeper” from Minecraft. Half the fun is in deciding, after all (and the other half is in the candy)!

Not all parents dress up for Hallowe’en but if you can, we encourage it. Children love seeing their parents get in on the fun and be silly (or scary) for the night. You can dress up in your favourite costume or create a whole family Hallowe’en look - whatever works for your spooky crew!

There’s plenty of time left, but if you’re planning family costumes and need some inspiration, we’ve got a few ideas to get you started.

The Incredibles: Here’s a great tutorial from Freshly Completed.

A Bee-autiful Family: Our team loves this sweet-as-honey DIY project!

Baby’s First Literary Reference: What’s better than Harry Potter? A Potter-themed family costume like this one!

Get Mine-crafty: When your kids love video games but are still willing to dress like you.

Quick and Easy Fun: This stick man family won’t break your budget or take long to make.

Whether you’re a Pinterest-parent who makes their child’s costume of the solar system by hand or an Amazon Prime mom who orders it online, your kids are going to have a blast this Halloween. With all of the excitement of the season, why not give them a story that captures the fun?

What to be for Hallowe’en is available now, along with several other spooky books in the Friendly Fables series. Get your copy today and enjoy giggles for years to come.
