DIY Warm Halloween Costume Your Child will Love all Winter

Halloween is around the corner. If you haven’t picked out a custom yet, I have a great idea for you that I know your child will love all winter long! Kids can instantly transform into their favorite animal with an adorable, super soft blanket.  The blankets have heads with faces as well as paws for their hands! What more do you need for a Halloween costume?! It is going to be a cold Halloween this year, making this the best option – your child can wear his coat under this Halloween costume so he won’t freeze!

There are so many animals to choose from, as you can see above!  What I would do is dress my child in a similar color of clothes. For instance, wear brown if you child wants to be the Brown Bear  or Lion , wear white to be the Polar Bear, green for the Turtle, black or white for the Zebra, and so on. You can paint their face or add whiskers too if you are really creative!

Wild Things also has blankets that kids can get right into. They measure 53” tall by 22” wide. I’m not 100% sure but I feel like this would make a great costume for children in wheelchairs as it would keep their bodies warm. They would also be good for toddlers in strollers. Choose from Orca Whale, Penguin and Shark.


This is a really warm Halloween option with ultra-soft material. Unlike other costumes, your child will use and love this blanket all season long. I know this from experience because my daughter loves her Wild Things Animal Blanket.  She has a Polar Bear blanket and uses it all the time – at night, in the living room while watching tv, at sleepovers – everywhere! It is super soft and super cute!

If you haven’t yet picked out a Halloween costume for your child, hurry over to the Wild Things website and order one right now for $24.95 – you may need to express ship it to get it time for trick or treating! Also makes a wonderful Christmas gift!  Wild Things blankets are available on, and
