CovetbyTricia originally posted this PacMan and Ghost Costume idea. It would be really easy to add more colors and go for having a Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde!
Your kids can all be Gatorade Bottles! (Originally posted by the slightlysaltykids) Just use an orange swim cap and Gatorade Logo, which you can find on Google Images.View more Sibling Costume Ideas

I love this article! Every year I take my little ones to the local thrift store for their Halloween costumes and they go crazy (in a fun way). They love seeing how creative they can be with what the store currently has and their imagination. Last year my daughter found a pink dress and wanted us to “paste” white dots on it so she could be Minnie Mouse. We are definitely looking forward to dressing up for Halloween this year.
