Whether you’re a parent who's spent months planning, pinteresting, designing and making this year's Halloween costume, or you’re the parent who forgets and does the urgent dash to the dollar store (me), we’ve got the best costumes to try while your tots are still little.
1. Little old people
Make the most of bub's wobbly knees and toothless grins! All ya need is a grey wig (if your kid's not still bald), a cardi and glasses.
2. Bag of jellybeans
Cute, inexpensive and easy to assemble! All you need is some balloons, a see through bag, and a printout of your fave jellybeans logo.
Costumes like these are bound to win your kid more treats.
Blob, blob, blob. Whether it be some easy ribbon or high-tech LED lights, the variations to this costume are endless! And handy if the weather turns.
5. Scuba divers
Effective and environmentally responsible! Repurposing old plastic bottle and dummies is a nice touch.
This mythical creature is very in vogue right now. Fortunately this can be as extravagant or simple as you have time for.
7. Musical legends
From Bowie to Prince, you can get creative with these ones! Even a touch of face paint, or an appropriate jacket will work wonders.
8. The Minions!
Nothing despicable about this outfit.
9. Wayne's World
This one's for us parents!

10. Jon Snow
And another one, because if you've got a mini direwolf at home, you have to use it.
