Halloween is a time for kids to break out all the stops to flaunt their best costume. It's a holiday of celebration and fun, and one's age or mobile ability shouldn't limit it. Those with disabilities that restrict movement and require them to use a wheelchair or walker are sometimes forgotten around Halloween season by retailers selling costumes, so many parents have to create their own wheelchair-friendly costumes from scratch.
The Scarecrow Skedaddle is right around the corner get inspired by these parents, who have come up with some amazing ideas to transform their kids' wheelchairs and strollers into vehicles, cartoon characters, dragons, and more.
If your kiddo is a speed demon. This chair is sure to take their costume to the next level. It can be easily modified to their favorite NASCAR driver or cartoon character.
Push your little batman in this simple and quick bat-mobile! Just add some black foam board wings to your stroller or wheelchair for the perfect superhero accessory.
This little spider is on the move and his mobile aid spider legs look awesome!
This cute little chef will be warm and cozy for any outdoor festivities.
We love this DJ! He would be welcome at any Halloween party!
The greatest part of these homemade costumes is how it can reveal the costume wearer underneath it. Watch personalities shine and faces radiate with joy as they are seen for themselves and not for their chair.
Overall Halloween costumes are an awesome way to connect with everyone!
