Halloween is creeping up on us all! If you have little ones, you’re most likely so busy with the day to day that coming up with a costume idea is still on your “to do” list. Well, lucky for you, I’ve rounded up some amazing family costume ideas thanks to my friend Happi Olson, multi-generational mother of four and host of The Happi House aaaand VP of Creative Kidstuff. This lady knows a thing or two about getting kids pumped up for holidays.
