Who said kids on wheels can’t go trick or treatin’?
Parents of disabled kids try everyday to make their children feel normal.
Yes, they can’t run or jump or hike like the other kids, but that doesn’t mean they can’t play and have fun this Halloween.
Trick or Treat can be stressful, though. Parents strive to come up with the perfect costume. And guess what! We found tons of ideas online. Easy, creative and fun ones to make. All you need is some paint, some brushes, cardboard and other art materials. Run to the nearest art store now and don’t forget to stock on imagination!
Turn that wheelchair into anything you can think of — here are 25 Epic Halloween Costume Ideas to inspire you in making that major art project!
1) Red Baron Pilot
2) Buzz Lightyear
To infinity and beyond!
This is Connor and he has leukodystrophy. His parents are awesome at making him costumes every Halloween. One year it was Cat in the hat, then Mickey Mouse, then Spongebob with a boat. And this one, he’s Buzz Lightyear.
3) DJ Booth
Turn the music up!
4) Bat Mobile
Who said Batman’s retired?
5) School Bus
Kids, the school bus is here!
This Bus Wheelchair Costume can be made out of a recliner box and regular box. Buy some push lights for headlights and some handicap license plate. Then you need some krylon spray paint (or acrylic – works best on cardboard!).
This Fireman wheelchair costume was a show-stopper at the Holland Bloorview’s 2012 Halloween parade.
All this costume needs is lots of red spray paint! You will also need black and silver spray paint for the complete effect. Look for plastic bowls and LED lights at home depot to make headlights. Don’t forget the fireman hat!
7) Super Mario
The super brothers!
PS Use foam boards to construct a gnarly red spoiler and run to a hardware store to get some rubber for the steering wheel. Whatever you do, don’t forget the mustache!
8) The Flintstones
9) The Eleventh Doctor at Doctor Who
Because Bow Ties are cool.
You are under arrest…for looking so adorable!

15) How To Train Your Dragon
Dragons are friends.
“For Halloween this last year my oldest son wanted to be a dragon rider and fly Toothless from his favorite movie How to Train Your Dragon. These costumes for one day of the year — and really any day they want to rock ’em — bridge the gap of excluding kids in wheelchairs and do that in an epic way!” – Ryan Weimer, dad of Keaton, age 9 and Bryce, age 3
