Finding tween Halloween costume ideas that are appropriate and costumes that fit their growing bodies can be tricky. Most costumes are made for adults, making them too big, or for young children, making them too small.

No matter what reason your tween is dressing up, these Halloween costume ideas for tweens will be a fun way for them to celebrate the spooky season.
