Twin Halloween Costume Ideas

While Halloween is a fun and exciting time for all families, most parents of twins or more really enjoy the opportunity Halloween brings to get creative with costumes for their children.

Many parents of twins – even those who don't normally dress their kids alike every day – enjoy coming up with matching or complimentary costumes for their twins on Halloween.

When your twins are infants, the decision on how to dress them up for Halloween is entirely up to you . . .so enjoy yourself and have fun. As your children get older and begin to express themselves, they will most likely want more of a say in the costume they wear for parties or to trick-or-treat.

Some twins may want to continue dressing alike or around a similar theme. Others may want to wear costumes that have nothing to do with one another. Like all things with twins, take your cues from your children and give them a chance to express their individual preferences, as well as their twinhood.

If you like the idea of dressing your children in alike or complimentary costumes, the following are some twins Halloween costume ideas . If your twins also have younger or older siblings, you may want to ask them if they want to coordinate their costume with their twin siblings . . .several of the ideas below can work well with more than two children.
