Halloween is one of the most widely loved and celebrated holidays of the year. It’s whimsical and ghostly charm attracts the young, old, and canine alike. According to a survey by the National Retail Foundation, this year’s Halloween is the most-loved yet, with a record breaking 170 million people who plan to celebrate. Between decor, candy, and costumes, the average person will spend $79.82, with total consumer spending expected to reach $8.0 billion.
Children especially love Halloween, and we can understand why- playing dress up and eating massive amounts of candy! Although fun, picking and purchasing your kid’s costumes can sometimes be difficult. Some schools are beginning to set rules banning costumes that they deem too scary or risqué, though most still leave it up to the parents discretion. Not to mention, children’s costumes can cost up to $60, which might just be the scariest part of Halloween! We understand it can be difficult to justify spending so much money on a costume that will only get a few hours use before it sees the trash can, so we offer a handful of budget-friendly and kid-friendly costumes that your children will not only enjoy on Halloween, but will play in year round!
