Kids are Characters 365 days out of the year, so Halloween isn't that scary for parents after all. That said, your little one can dress the part with our sweet and fun Kids are Characters Collection. Kids' animal beanies, monster earflaps and fairy tale hats are all lined with fleece and super comfy to wear.

To make life that much easier, we compiled all the looks we know will save the day for last minute costume ideas (and make kids excited to keep their hats on throughout the winter on the coldest days spent playing outside!)


Here's our list of easy & instant costumes for a cold Halloween:

It's so easy to be a kitty cat this year!
