Kinderling News & Features

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 in 2017.

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.

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.
