I’ve always been a fan of all the different holidays, and Halloween is a special favourite. I love creating fun homemade decorations, dressing up and handing out candy to the neighbourhood kids. And my boys love the fun of trick-or-treating and dressing up in fun costumes just as much! Last year, we took our costume inspiration from Avengers Assemble on Netflix Canada for our costumes and dressed as Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow.
This year, both my boys have taken their costume inspiration from video games rather than television but personally, I’m thinking dressing up as Eleven from Stranger Things would be a fun and easy DIY costume choice! A pink dress, an oversized jean jacket, a white-blonde wig and sports socks would be all I needed to showcase this character from my new favourite Netflix exclusive series.

Of course, nothing is better for getting in the Halloween spirit than sitting down to watch some spooky shows together! My boys especially love Casper’s Scare School, a series they watch all year long! And the entire family enjoys taking some time to watch Ghostbusters or Goosebumps together in the days before Halloween arrives!
Whether your kids prefer to be cute and funny or spooky and scary, finding costume inspiration is often as easy as choosing your favourite Netflix show. Whether you decide to DIY like I will be this year or you splurge on a costume as we have for previous Halloween celebrations, you and your kids are sure to be dressed to impress on the most creepy, crawly, candy-filled night of the year.
