Family Halloween Costume Idea #2: Wizard of Oz

halloween costume ideas kids

Next up in our Family Halloween Costume Idea series: The Wizard of Oz. A classic choice with enough characters for even the biggest family. This idea was actually sparked by my toddler who informed me promptly at 6:15 a.m. that he would like to be The Scarecrow for Halloween. After a little searching, I realized there are so many creative options for this family costume theme.

Just like with the Harry Potter theme, I chose mostly from Etsy because I love the idea of handmade costumes. So you can use these pictures as a jumping off point for your own DIY ideas, as a way to purchase from Etsy, or just for store-bought inspiration:
