1. I absolutely love the balloon costume inspired by “Once Upon a Balloon”. You could easily make this one yourself , a total DIY project!

2. If your child doesn’t dream about going to space, they will after reading “Rocket Man”, a story about John Glenn. Then they might just ask to be an astronaut for Halloween!

3. What little girl doesn’t want a unicorn? Why not be one for Halloween? This costume goes along great with “If I Found a Wistful Unicorn”.



4. Boo! Take your little ghost to a “Haunted Party” in this adorable costume.


5.  I think this is the cutest witch costume! I love the green and orange combination. Perfect for the “The Little Green Witch”!
