    Halloween is one of the easiest times of the year to get the whole family involved and what better way to treat the neighbors than with a family Halloween costume? There are so many ideas that easily lend themselves to a family Halloween costume theme, you’ll probably find your only problem is narrowing down the many options.

    One of the most traditional and well liked family Halloween costume ideas is to have the whole family dress up like the cast of The Wizard of Oz. This idea works well because you can easily add or subtract cast members as you need to suit the number of people in your family.

    The most traditional way to handle this theme, of course; is to have a Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin man and Lion. If you have more than four people in your family; however you can could add Glenda the Good Witch as well as the Wicked Witch. Also, why not consider the Wizard himself? Even the family dog can get in on the fun in the role of Toto.

    The Addams Family has also been a traditional favorite for years when it comes to family Halloween costumes. There’s just something about Morticia, Gomez, Uncle Fester, Wednesday and Cousin It that makes everyone smile.

    While film and literature work extremely well for family Halloween costume ideas, don’t feel as though you have to limit yourself. Any type of theme will work just as well and you need not spend a lot of money in order to pull off an original look. Consider options like a vampire family, cave family or even a family from a particular culture or time period.

    Sitcom family Halloween costume ideas have also proven to be particularly popular, with The Brady Bunch and Married with Children rounding out the top all time favorites.

    Many of these pieces for these types of family Halloween costumes can be found browsing through yard sales, thrift shops and even the back of your closet. Look for specials on marked down fabric at craft stores and get handy with a needle and thread.

    A family Halloween costume idea is really only as limited as your imagination. If your family is particularly patriotic, why not consider working that theme into your costume idea? Mom could represent the Statue of Liberty with Dad as Uncle Sam; a young daughter as Miss America and a young son as a member of the armed forces.

    Keep in mind that family costumes do not necessarily have to reflect the traditional nuclear family, either. You could have just mom and daughter dress up in complimentary costumes or father and son. Brother and sister costumes work equally as well.

    Regardless of whether you are planning to go out trick-or-treating, attend a party or simply want to bring a smile to the lips of everyone that drops by your house this October 31 as you pass out candy, there’s no better way to enjoy this holiday than with a family Halloween costume.
