An elephant costume goes great with a safari theme.

Parents have walked up the sidewalk to take a closer look at me after the kids have run down the street to tell them, "That mom is dressed up!" Moms have told me they almost wore a costume but chickened out and that they miss dressing up for Halloween.
But there's no reason not to get in costume just like your kids do. In fact, it's so much fun to pick costumes around a theme. Your baby's elephant costume (compare prices) works great with a safari theme. Bring your child's favorite book, show or movie characters to life when you all dress as the cast.
See 12 costume themes for families you can work with this Halloween. My personal favorites are the walking garden, reverse family and Hollywood dream themes. Many of the costume ideas also have pet versions, so the dog won't be left out either!
Be sure to share your own themed costume ideas too. We may be parents, but who says we can't have the same fun right along with our kids?
