10 Costume Ideas for Kids this Halloween

15 September 2016


They might behave like little monsters all year-round, but at Halloween your children can actually look the part too!

Whether you prefer to get crafty and make you own costume or pick up something ready-made, we’ve got everything you’ll need to dress your little ones up in creepy clobber.

Here are just 10 ideas from this year’s brand new B&M Halloween collection:

1. Fiery Demon

Suitable for children aged 5-10, this creepy, Fiery Demon costume features a hooded robe that can simply be worn over their regular clothing.

B&M Tip: Make sure you tell your child that they’re not allowed to wear it at night time. If they come and stand beside your bed to wake you up for something, you’ll have nightmares for weeks!

2. Sequin Witch

6. Fairytale Queen

All hail the Queen! Because if you don’t, she might cast a spell to turn you into a slug, or worse yet, decide that you will read them the same story at bedtime, that one that you’re already utterly sick of, forever… Oh, the horror.
