Thanks for stopping by to check out my list of Easy DIY Halloween Costumes for Kids! I have always lovvvvved Halloween! As a child, I remember when my parents would dress up with me and we had a great time trick-or-treating together. My most memorable Halloween was when my dad wore a dress! I was Pippi Longstocking that year, and my Mom wore overalls, and had straw in her teeth. I loved that my Mom was so creative with our costumes, and I’ve tried to carry that on with my girls.

    I clicked on this article, when I saw the Raggedy Ann costume, because I pinned this image a year ago and thought you might have more cute costumes up my alley. Love these ideas! I noticed that your Raggedy Ann pic is credited to the wrong person, though.
