in Kids, Tweens

Halloween costumes used to be easy for my baby girl, but as she’s entered her tween years, we’ve consistently had a more difficult time finding age-appropriate costumes that she both likes and are in her size. Perhaps the skirt is too short, the top cut too low, or the name of the costume always has the adjective “sexy” in the title – seriously, a sexy crayon costume? – so, like me, you’re looking for tween girl Halloween costume ideas! After much searching (and searching, because it took A LOT of digging), here is a nice list of 50+ Halloween costume ideas for your tween girl that you can feel good about as she goes trick-or-treating! Some are DIY, others are linked with affiliate links (thanks for your support!), but all are costumes I would feel comfortable with my 10-year-old wearing. Have a fun Halloween everyone!

Learning as much as we can about health insurance plans and taking advantage of available resources from health plan providers to become more knowledgeable, can only benefit us and our families! That’s why I’ve partnered with UnitedHealthcare for this post to share how you can use some of their fun interactive tools to get informed on health care plans and possibly win a little money along the way! (You do not have to be a UnitedHealthcare member to learn or participate – seriously!)
