Special Needs Halloween Costume Ideas

Still debating costumes for yourself or your special needs child? If you’re anything like our family, James and I discuss the same 3 costume choices year after year, none of which involve helmets, masks, face paint, scratchy material, special shoes, sound effects or anything scary. What they all do involve are Star Wars, Harry Potter or Nintendo characters. Put the last two sentences together and that equals….. yep, about 3 costumes.

My 3 yr old and James are going as the Mario brothers this year – James is Mario. To make it sensory friendly (for both of them) we are using an eyeliner pencil for a mustache  and wearing cotton t-shirts underneath the scratchy overall costume. I wanted my 4 yr old to go as Princess Peach but she insisted on being Ariel, and with her red hair who was I to resist? I just hope she lets me brush it the night before!

Need some ideas?
