Family costumes are so awesome if your children will let you pull them off! My kids now at 5 and 4 have their own minds made up about their Halloween costumes so there’s no convincing them to dress in what mommy wants.
However, if you still have a young baby or toddler or hasn’t fully formed opinions on likes and dislikes, you can certainly plan group Halloween costume for your family of 4.
If you’re looking for that perfect family Halloween costume, I’m sure that I’ve got one for you here. You’ll find costumes that are great with a pregnant mom, babies, toddlers, or even a dog as well!
