If you’re seeking inspiration for a cute costume for your little ones to wear this year, then this list might just do the trick (or treat!)

Super easy costumes for kids that even busy moms can make!

Ben 10

Ben Tennyson is a ten year old armed with a device that turns him into an exciting range of alien heroes. But when he’s in human form, his gear is pretty casual. Grab a plain white tee, a green varsity jacket, a pair of khakis, and your kid is good to go! Don’t forget a nice wristwatch.

Aang from Avatar: The Last Airbender

Aang is the last surviving member of the Air Nomads. He’s pretty powerful, but uses his gifts to keep the peace. Aside from the staff and the fan, you’ll need some face paint as well. A shaved head will be great for extra realism. But if your kid’s got a full head of hair, this costume choice might take some convincing… or a swim cap.

Korra from The Legend of Korra

Korra is the beautiful and headstrong heroine from the follow up series to Avatar: The Last Airbender. If you’re pressed for time, a long blue shirt or tunic could do the trick. Just add brown boots to finish off the look.

Winx Club

The Winx Club is a crew of fairies in training who protect the world from evildoers. You don’t need magic to come up with a cool Winx Club costume for your kids. Just a tutu, cardboard, and a bit of your own creative magic to make some wings.

Finn The Human from Adventure Time

Finn is a 14-year-old boy who loves nothing more than saving the day alongside his best friend, Jake the Dog. To take him out from the Land of Ooo and onto your streets, take a blue t-shirt, blue shorts and a green backpack! So easy!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Get your kids to dress up as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and have them shell shock your neighborhood trick or treat! With a green sweater and a bit of arts of crafts know how, you can use items like paper plates and cardboard to channel the radical looks of Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael.

Dora the Explorer

Dora’s a pretty curious girl who’s always out and about. That’s why her gear is pretty comfy and easy to find. Just get a pink shirt, some orange shorts, white sneakers, and don’t forget the purple backpack! It’ll come in handy lugging all the candy your kids are bound to take home on Halloween.

Diego from Go Diego Go

Diego is a lovable little boy who has a thing for rescuing animals. To get the look, ready some cargo shorts, a blue t-shirt and an orange backpack. For added effect, some patches and a stuffed animal will go a long way!


Megamind is a brilliant villain who ends up becoming a hero when a new threat starts to wreak some havoc. Some serious thinking (and sewing!) might be required to put this costume together, but if you’ve got blue tights, some cardboard, and a bit of face paint, seeing your kid as Megamind could be a Megahit in your community!

The Powerpuff Girls

You don’t need to mix sugar, spice and everything nice to come up with killer Powerpuff girl costumes for your kids! All you need are dresses in the right colors, accessories like a bow, and black belts. Chemical X optional.
