Although Halloween is going to look a little bit different this year, there’s no reason you can’t dress up with the family. Whether you’re staying in, going out or a variation of the two, these costume ideas could be homemade out of everyday materials or objects around the house.
The Little Mermaid
Each person in the family could be a different character from The Little Mermaid, including Ursula, King Triton, Ariel and faithful sidekicks, Sebastian and Flounder.
The Wizard of Oz
Last Halloween, country music star Thomas Rhett and his family dressed up as the Wizard of Oz gang and inspired many families to do the same. The characters are adorable and the storyline teaches the kids a valuable lesson.
The Addams Family
With the new The Addams Family movie released last year, it’s the perfect year to dress as the iconic Halloween family.
The Mystery Gang
Scooby Doo and the gang just took on a new adventure in a brand-new animated movie, Scoob! Introduce your young ones to the gang through the new movie or one of the classics. Once they are hooked, start planning the costume! If you have more family members than the gang, have some dress up as monsters.
With four movies, there is an endless amount of Toy Story characters to go as for Halloween. Go the classic route and be Woody, Buzz, Jessie and the other classic toys, or dress up as the villains or other supporting characters from each movie. Take a spin on the classic costume idea and go as the toys disguised as traffic cones crossing the street in the sequel.
If you have a big family or want to incorporate many families, the Despicable Me cast costume is perfect. Build your own army of adorable little Minions to run around the neighborhoods this Halloween.
The Little Rascals
Although your kids may be too young to know this movie, it would be an adorable costume for the young ones and a great family photo opportunity.
Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains is the perfect place for autumnal fun, and at Camelback Resort, families can also enjoy some spooks this Halloween season with its Haunted Mountain Coaster and Lights Out Zip Line.
While urban wine country might sound like an oxymoron, it’s actually a reality at the stunning City Vineyard in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood. The water-side venue is the perfect host for your next event — whatever that may be, from 20 to 200 guests and from cocktail party to plated dinner.
Driving into the quaint town of Luray, Virginia, was a much-needed reprieve from 4.5 hours spent driving mostly highways from New Jersey. My sister and I arrived in town around 4 p.m., found parking in the lot provided by Hotel Laurance, and happily jumped out to mask up, check-in and stretch our legs.
Picky eaters or adventurous culinary kiddos, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts debuted a new concept for its littlest diners, FoodieKiDS. The children’s menu was crafted after global research saw 5,500 parents of children 12 and under from six different markets interviewed about children’s eating habits.
