  • I just made my "list' of ideas the other day for Family Costume Ideas (DH has learned to accept that I am cheesy and will coordinate all of us for Halloweed)
    The Wizard of Oz- Tin Man, Lion, Scarecrow
    Aladdin- Aladdin and Genie or Abu
    Toy Story- Woody and Buzz
    You could even do Pea and Carrot ("They go together like Peas and Carrots")
    Or things like a Cookie and a glass of Milk
    Pooh and Tigger
    I could go on....

  • I was going to suggest Peter Pan and Tink....but you have boys! A few years ago I saw a lady with three boys and they were Alvin and the Chipmunks. She bought over sized shirts and sewed a Big "A" for the Alvin one!

    You could do the man in the yellow hat and Curious George, Elmo and Cookie Monster, Knight and Dragon, 2 pumpkins.

    Have fun and good luck!

  • Last year for halloween my boys were 15 months and 3 months. The oldest was a monkey and the baby was a banana. I got both costumes at Old Navy. It was really cute and I got a lot of compliments.

  • He wants to be spiderman

  • Since your 4 yr old wants to be spiderman you could do spider man and one of the villians. I would think that Sandman wouldn't be to hard because it's just khaki pants and a drk green and light green striped shirt. Or one could be red spiderman and the other black spiderman.

    I have 3 boys and all of them went as spiderman one year. LOL they all love spiderman.
