Fall is just around the corner, and that means it’s time to break out the Halloween decorations because spooky season is upon us! Whether you’re all about dressing up or you’re just in it for the candy (and, hey, we wouldn’t blame you), Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year for the whole family. Between festive community events all throughout October and trick or treating on Halloween night, you can set yourself apart from the crowd with some truly creative costumes for you and your little ones. And we’re about to let you in on the best parenting hack to make this holiday as fuss-free as possible: DIY costumes with pajamas.
If you’ve ever tried to wrangle a toddler who just won’t keep their outfit on while trick or treating, or tried to soothe a baby who hates their hot, itchy costume, you know the major struggle that goes on behind the scenes of a Halloween family photo. Forget wasting money on a costume that your little one will wear for all of 10 minutes, and go the DIY route instead. Not the most savvy with a needle and thread? No problem. All you need is a soft, stretchy Kyte piece in the right color, a little imagination, a few accessories, and maybe a hot glue gun. Your child will be happy as a clam in the silky, breathable fabric and they can go straight to bed after the festivities. Here are some Halloween costumes you can DIY using Kyte Baby pieces:

Okay, this costume is so niche, but a huge winner in our books. This little one is dressed up as Kyte Baby founder Ying Liu, using a bamboo jersey cardigan in the color Nutmeg (retired) and long sleeve pajamas in the color Eggplant (retired). To recreate this, use any other color Cardigan, and any other Kyte Baby purple (Ying's favorite color!), like Haze.
