Easy DIY Kids Costumes For Halloween

Halloween is almost here, which feels surreal to even say! Between zoom meetings and virtual classrooms, it hardly feels like we've had any time to even think about costumes yet. But with time moving at seemingly warp speed, we've pulled together some last-minute costume ideas inspired by some of our favorite Trailblazers! With a few easy DIYs and using items you likely have at home, we hope these tips help make your Halloween season a little easier this year.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg Halloween Costume

There's no doubt we'll be seeing a lot of costumes honoring the late RBG this year - from both kids and adults. But before you rush out to buy a pre-packaged (and overpriced) RBG costume, we wanted to share a few tips to pull together this look at home:

  • Pull hair back into a tight bun
  • Use an old graduation gown as your Justice robe!
  • Make a dissent collar out of coffee filters or old doilies (or check out this fun DIY project from our friends at Bravery Magazine)
  • Grab a pair of grandma's old glasses (but be sure to pop out the lenses if they're prescription)
Jane Goodall Halloween Costume

This famed primatologist is considered to be the world's foremost expert on chimpanzees. Step into her shoes with these easy hacks:

  • Throw hair into a low-bun to capture Jane's signature, low-maintenance look
  • Make binoculars out of toilet paper rolls and paint (glue them together and puncture a hole on each side to tie string around)
  • Bring along a stuffed animal monkey as a sidekick!
Frida Kahlo Halloween Costume

This vibrant artist is one of our all-time favorite Trailblazers to emulate! Colorful and creative, embodying this icon feels like stepping into a painting yourself. Throw on your most colorful clothes and:

  • Make a flower crown out of construction paper or pick some flowers around the neighborhood
  • Grab a paint brush for an easy prop
  • Top off your look with a colorful shawl
  • And of course, no Frida costume is complete without her signature brow. Use a little eyeliner to create the look.

Mae Jemison Halloween Costume

The first African-American woman to travel in space, this trailblazing leader is the perfect costume for your little astronaut. Put on an orange sweater or jacket and:

  • Paint a NASA badge using cardboard from the recycling bin
  • Use a toy rocket as a prop
  • Cover a bike helmet in foil to make a DIY space helmet
