Halloween is lurking just around the corner and if you are anything like us, it’s hard to determine who is more excited—you, or the kids? “Too old to dress up” just doesn’t ring true to you. So break out your rubber nose and dust of your witch’s hat, it’s time to play dress up with a family-themed costume.

Bear In Mind

Be sure to bear in mind your child's age (and tolerance level) when choosing costumes. This smart mama seized the moment with her young son’s age. There is a point beyond which most boys will emphatically refuse to dress up as matching cuddly bears. If you miss this point, there is no going back. Trust us, we've tried.

How does your family play dress up? Share with us below!
