Halloween with twins can mean twice the stress as you try to brain storm, make, buy, and dress up your candy crazed kids. But, on the other hand, it's also twice the opportunity for creativity, because when you have twins, a whole new set of costume possibilities opens up. There are so many costumes for twins that aren't two peas in a pod or other over-done ideas that you probably all ready considered. These ideas are unique, easy to pull off, and more often than not, pretty darn hilarious when you get it all put together.
If the thought of trick-or-treating with twins is less than appealing to you, wait till you picture your kiddos in these costumes-for-two. Dressing your littles up like peanut butter and jelly or rambunctious minions from Despicable Me, is sure to make them the hit of the block. Plus, coordinated costumes means less stress for you.
Most of these ideas are cheap to buy, or even cheaper to DIY yourself with items you most likely have on hand. They all use basic supplies like t-shirts, fabric paint, or a little bit of cardboard, and can be made in a timely manner, because dressing up your twins shouldn't have to take twice the amount of time.
