If you’re like me, the thought of dressing up your kids in coordinated costumes is simply adorable. And if one of those kids is a baby, the cuteness factor rises exponentially. I particularly like the idea of dressing up my second child (who just turned 1) as the sidekick for the main character (who is 8). Here are some ideas that'll make any sibling pair stand out.
These would work particularly well if your older child is a girl and the little one is a boy. Dora the Explorer are readily available at Halloween superstores and online. If you’re having trouble finding a costume for Boots, you can always substitute a regular monkey.
My baby acts like a monkey, so why not dress him up as one? Here, the little guy would be the main character (Curious George) and the older one would be the secondary character (the Man with the Yellow Hat). This idea works particularly well for two boys.
It’s easy to make costumes for these nursery rhyme characters yourself (gingham dress and bonnet for Miss Muffet, black clothes for the spider and black nylon stockings stuffed with cotton balls for its legs). I also found costumes for both characters on eBay.
