Easy Halloween Costumes for Kids with Autism and Sensory Issues

by Unicorn Lover on September 17, 2019

Moms with children that have autism or sensory issues- we know that navigating the holidays may be a little harder for you. Halloween is coming up and that might mean you are looking to find a way to make dressing up creative, but not overstimulating. We want to help make this year a little easier for you!

If your child has autism or sensory issues, then Halloween costumes might be too much for them with all the different colors, parts, and materials. This is yet another reason we love our blankets and hats- because they are fun for everyday use, but also a simple sensory-friendly costume!

 Easy Costume Options for Children with Autism or Sensory Issues

Unicorn Blanket for Girls

If you have a little girl who loves the unicorn world, then our unicorn blanket might be the perfect gift and Halloween costume. Our blankets are made with quality knitted acrylic that is soft and light. The fibers are not itchy or irritating, which is helpful if their sensory issue is the feel of the material. 

It comes with colorful fringe and a hood with horn to make dressing up as a unicorn easy and cozy. The blanket also comes in a few different fringe color options so that you can find the one that suits her preference. This is a great idea for older kids too because we also carry adult sizes!



Dragon Blanket for Boys

We know boys love dragons and dinosaurs! That’s why we created our dragon blanket- so boys don’t miss out on the fun of their own magical creature gift. It is also made with 100% acrylic that is well crafted and soft to the touch. We like to compare it to a soft knit sweater. 

Whether your kid pretends to be a dragon, dinosaur or monster, this fun character blanket will make him smile and roar. This means that he can cuddle up at home, or use it to inspire his imagination on Halloween night! Both our red/black option and our blue/green option come with eyes, spikes, and horns to make the blanket come alive.


Unicorn Hat for Moms

We didn’t forget about you Mom! Knowing that the process of getting the kids dressed and ready might leave you without your own costume, we have adorable unicorn hats you can throw on to join in on the fun. If you are looking for something bright and colorful we have a hot pink option and you can even get interchangeable horns. 



If you are looking for something a little more classic, we’ve got a laid back black option that still showcases a shiny unicorn horn!
