Halloween is creeping up on us and whenever we walk through the aisles of our local supermarket, Amy starts planning her costume – in detail. I didn’t think she’d get into the whole dressing up thing quite that early, but after banking herself lots of sweet treats when she went trick or treating with her cousins last year, she seems to have caught the Halloween bug.
I’m not a massive fan myself, but as Amy enjoys dressing up in fancy dress costumes, not only for Halloween may I add, I play along and let her embrace the spirit of Halloween while cringing behind my hands. We’ll pick up a cute little outfit for her, carve some pumpkins and visit some houses in our street, so that Amy can practise her scary face – if you ask me, if she puts on the one she shows me at 7.30 every morning, her little bucket will be full within a couple of minutes.
Last year, Amy dressed up as a little witch and I absolutely loved her costume. We ordered it last minute from Tesco Direct and it was delivered free of charge the next day to our local branch. She’s been wearing it until it fell apart last weekend, which is a bit of a shame as it really was utterly adorable. It was cute and girly and most importantly, it was age-appropriate. I hate nothing more than little girls and boys dressed up as zombie brides or the Grim Reaper. It just doesn’t sit right with me when there are outfits out there that are so much more appropriate for them.
Luckily there are lots of cute costumes available at the moment. Here are some of our favourites:
Have you thought about fancy dress costumes for Halloween yet or have you maybe even bought your little ones outfit? I’d love to know what they’re dressing up as!
