I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years. I’m pretty sure the last time was when S was 2 and I made a DIY Flintstones costume for us. But this year, the kids and I are matching thanks to this super easy butterfly, flower and bee themed family costume idea.

Monarch Butterfly Kids Costume
My daughter doesn’t like most Halloween costumes — even the pretty ones — because the materials just seem too itchy too her. So instead of buying a complete costume for her, we put together a few simple items to make a cute Monarch butterfly. The best part is that half her costume can be worn anytime, not just on Halloween. She wears the shoes to school and the thermals will be handy in winter. The other half? Makes for fun dress-up clothes and only cost me $13 (but check the Cartwheel app for costume deals).
Baby Bee Costume
It’s just so much easier to buy the whole costume for baby’s first Halloween. I had grand plans of creating some fun space-themed outfit for my son’s first Halloween, but once S picked up the butterfly costume and I turned around and saw this bee one I knew what had to be done. These two are the cutest matching without really matching costumes ever.

Adult DIY Flower Costume
My little butterfly and bee totally love this flower! Ahahaha so, the point of this costume is to not only fit the family costume theme but to give moms the chance to buy a new scarf, dress and pair of shoes. This whole costume can be worn with other outfits and accessories (the dress is super cute with a belt), and 100% slutty or embarrassing one-time-use costume free.
