New Kits Let Kids DIY Their Own Halloween Costumes

DIY Costumes

Picking a Halloween costume is a rite of passage for kids of all ages. If your kids are anything like ours, they start the process of deciding on their costume months before Halloween. They'll pick one thing, change their mind, pick something else, change their mind again. It's a vicious cycle, and most parents know not to seal the deal and buy a costume until the very last moment, since their kids will probably change their minds again! If you're the crafty type, you may even take on the gargantuan task of making

Halloween costumes for your kids. That can be so much fun, but it's a lot of work, and it takes the creative direction out of your kid's hands. But now, thanks to KiwiCo, you can purchase a kit that lets your child DIY their own costume this Halloween. Best of both worlds!

The really cool part is a lot of the costumes light up or glow, which adds just the perfect touch to their trick-or-treating ensemble. If you've got two kids who want the same costume, don't worry! Every kit is different, so no two costumes will look exactly alike. Plus, since they're making it themselves, they get to put their own creative spin on their costume. They range in price from $12.95 to $44.95, which is a steal when it comes to Halloween costumes. These are all so amazing, and we can't wait to try one out!
