Halloween Costume Ideas That Get the Whole Family Involved

At Pottery Barn Kids, we absolutely love Halloween. It’s not only a time to see your children’s imaginations run wild, but it’s also a time for bonding and having fun with your little ones. That’s why we’ve partnered with our friend Cassidy June again to show just how fun – and adorable – it is to get it costume with your kids this Halloween.


I had so much fun putting together some mom and kid costumes last year for Pottery Barn Kids. As a family therapist, I’m a firm believer in finding ways to make every holiday a family affair and I’m always a huge advocate of getting creative and silly with your kids. I was especially excited to get some dads involved in the dressing up this year, there’s no reason they should be left out of the fun!

This year’s PB Kid’s costumes are just beyond adorable, and I hope these looks will inspire you to get dressed up with them! Happy trick or treating!

The costumes:

Astronaut and “space!”

This look was inspired by my friend Kelly over at Studio DIY and her balloon space costume!  I wanted to look celestial for my brave astronaut so I wore a black sequin jumper (but anything black and shiny would work) and pinned on some gold sequin stars. The moon and star balloons were a big hit with all of the kids! My daughter had a blast orbiting her mothership.



Unicorns and “rainbow”

What goes better together than rainbows and unicorns?! For this look we paired a rainbow skirt with a white scalloped top for a “cloud” effect. The rainbow mama’s purse is actually an old Pottery Barn Kid’s bag (from last Fall) that I wrapped in gold sequin fabric! 



Lost at Sea Family

When I saw the adorable mermaid costume this year, I knew I needed a pirate to go with it. The mom is dressed up as “pirate’s treasure!” She made the jeweled crown and they all had so much fun tossing those pirate coins in the air! The little shark brought suspense and adventure and completed our “lost at sea” family!



Butterfly fairy and her flowers

Last year we had a bumble bee and her field of flowers, and this year we created a flowers look for dad! This little butterfly fairy thought her dad’s floralized beard was pretty special! If dad doesn’t have a beard, or you don’t have flowers hanging around, any floral shirt will do!


It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s super mom of two!

Ok mamas – you may not always feel like you have super powers, but you’re certainly a super hero in your family! This mama is quite crafty and she used a vintage tablecloth to make herself a cape. With her flower cuffs, this super mom’s secret power is to get her kids to pick flowers, not fights!



We had such a blast getting into the Halloween spirit that we hope this sparks some inspiration for you and your kiddos this year! Check out all our costumes to find the perfect kid n’ parent pair and tag with #lovemypbk for a chance to be featured on our social channels!
