5 Last-Minute Children’s Costumes for Halloween

Not prepared for Halloween this year?  Never fear — The Laughing Stork has some unique and super-easy costume ideas for you.

What you need:
-Bunny ears
-Magic Marker to write “MISSING” on child’s shirt, dress, whatever

How to sell it to your child:
-Tell her that, by creating Max & Ruby’s missing parents, she is giving Max hope that he may one day escape Ruby’s evil rule.

What you need:
-One potty training seat

How to sell it to your child:
-Are you kidding me?  Your kid gets to wear a TOILET SEAT on her head.  That idea sells itself.


What you need:
-A jar or box or outstretched hand to collect donations
-A baby doll to kiss for photo opps

How to sell it to your child:
-Tell her that if she collects enough money and becomes president, she can pass important laws — such as requiring all families to serve chocolate chip cookies for dinner.

What you need:
-A baby holding a Pumpkin Spice Latte and/or a cupcake and/or the last thing the baby ate

How to sell it to your child:
-Getting your child to agree to hold a cupcake won’t be hard — it’s getting your child to not EAT the cupcake that may present a challenge.

What you need:
-A Magic Marker to write the post-baby state of your social life on the child’s outfit

How to sell it to your child:
-Tell her that, considering what you’ve sacrificed for her, she owes you at least this much.

Because sharing is caring, as I tell my kids. (Except my wine. Never my wine.)
