The Adorable Baby

Even if they're not as enthusiastic about Halloween as the older kids, getting babies or toddlers dressed up for the occasion always makes adults melt. It may be too soon for anything too scary, so why not find a costume as adorable as they are? If your little one has a favorite animal, dress him or her up with fuzzy ears, a tail or a full bodysuit. If you can't decide on an animal, go with a classic and dress your little pumpkin up as, well, a little pumpkin.

The Wicked Witch

If she's already gone as a princess for, like, three straight Halloweens, go with a more seasonally appropriate route by turning her into the villain. It'll be nice for her to feel wicked for a change with an adorable witch outfit. Include a couple of props like a magic wand or toy broom, so she can enjoy casting spells while running around the neighborhood. As with any witch costume, a perfectly pointy hat is an absolute must.
