The Best DIY Costumes for Kids

Whether your crafting skills are freakishly good or slightly scary, Halloween is a great opportunity to test your creative limits.

The best DIY Halloween costumes for kids are those with personality, and we’ve rounded up some of our favorites over the years!

And, of course, we especially love costumes you can incorporate your scooter into! Scooting from house to house while trick-or-treating helps save those little legs from tiring out before you've made it around the whole neighborhood, and our three-wheel scooters stay upright when not in use, letting kids easily hop on and off while they're collecting treats on Halloween night.

 Micro Kickboard Halloween Costumes

No matter your costume, Micro scooters are the perfect companion for Halloween night.

Allowing your family to keep up with the crowd and scoot from house to house, we love the Mini Deluxe Magic for ages 2-5 and the Maxi Deluxe Foldable LED for ages 5-12.

These scooters stay upright when not in use, allowing children to easily hop on and off while they collect their treats.
