16 Must-See Family Halloween Costume Ideas For Four

Already dreaming about the perfect family Halloween costumes for four?

Whether you want something fun, something whimsical, super creative, adorable or whatever, I think you’re guaranteed to get some awesome inspiration from this list.

I tirelessly scoured Instagram to give you the BEST of the best four member family Halloween costumes.

I mean seriously, these ideas are AMAZING and creative and fun and just the best I have found. Along with the other ideas that I have (for families with babies or just for siblings) that you can find at the bottom of this post. Don’t just stop here!

So are you ready? Let’s get started!

Family Halloween Costumes For Four

Family Halloween costumes for four

1. Baby Shark

I told you these were creative, but this first idea takes the cake. LOOK at these DIY costumes?! Are you not in shock right now? I mean, come on! And the doo doo doo on the doggy takes this one over the edge.

2. 101 Dalmations

From super creative to super cute! This mama’s costumes are so stylish and adorable and on point.

3. Grease

Oh. My. Goodness. I love that this one completely captures the feel of Grease without being too sexy. It’s classy perfection. And look at those babies!!

How is it that with just a few carefully selected accessories a costume can be so obvious? I adore this one, and if you have a daughter, you could totally have her ditch the “trick or treat” for a “tell me bout it, stud” instead.



4. The Addam’s Family

They’re creepy and they’re cooky… or in this case, absolutely gorgeous. I don’t think the Addam’s Family ever looked this good, but I LOVE it.

I also love how easy this family costume idea is to pull of. You probably already have everything you need!



5. Loggers

MATCHING Halloween family costumes?

Can you believe how freaking cute this family is? How about dressing your family up as some loggers? And I definitely recommend including a fun photo shoot into your Halloween festivities. Look at those faces!!

6. Aladdin

Even though I am sure there are probably no other mamas on the face of the planet who look as amazing as Yvette, I still think that this is a pretty great family costume idea.

And if you’re not feeling like a real-life Princess Jasmin, you could always go as Rajah and have one of your kids be Jasmine.

7. African Safari

What I want to know is are those pajamas? If so, I think I need them. The perfect family costumes for animal lovers!

8. Fruit

If I told you that a family Halloween costume of fruit just might be the cutest thing ever, you probably wouldn’t believe me. But here you go, here’s the proof.

And if you can get your husband to dress up as a banana like this amazing mama did, then YOU are amazing as well.

9. Jurassic Park

Okay, I think I have gushed about every single idea here, but COME. ON. Look at this cuteness!



10. Farmer And Farm Animals

I love that this family decided to complete the costumes of their kids. This (and many examples above) show how you can so simply add to your kid’s costumes with your own.

11. Cinderella

Look at that little, precious mouse. The whole family is perfect!


12. Scooby Doo

The little details of this costume ensemble are what make me a little bit giddy. I LOVE the thought bubbles and of course the vehicle is simply perfect.



13. Circus

We all know that parenthood is a circus! And again with the dog?! I love it and this photo is my FAVE.



14. Full House

Ummm… I have NO words.

Can you even with this one?! Uncle JESSE!

You should 100% follow this mom because she is amazing. And the next two ideas are from her, too.



15. The Addam’s Family (Take Two)

The Addam’s Family is such a popular family Halloween costume idea that I had to include another for inspiration.

I’m sure you agree that I had to do it.



16. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation

Did I possibly leave the BEST for last?

This costume idea makes me laugh and smile and gives me all of the good, happy feels.

Seriously, go follow her. She’s brilliant.



Okay, so there you have it… BUT WAIT. There’s more!
