Occupation Dress Up & Pretend Play Ideas for Children’s Halloween Costumes

My kids love playing dress up and when Halloween rolls around each year it’s just another awesome day to pretend to be someone else all dressed up! Occupations are a great choice when choosing children’s Halloween costumes!

My kids usually aren’t into any specific characters so I usually encourage them to choose a real life person to dress up as! My mommy secret is that once I put an idea in the kid’s heads usually one of them will run with it! PLUS these are awesome for book report ideas too!

Below are some great ideas to get you started! Piece together outfits from the thrift store or shop on Amazon here! PIN this post here to look at later!
