Happy Halloween! Celeb Kids Show Off Their Spooktacular Costumes

10/31/2014 at 01:32 PM ET

Move over Pepé Le Pew!

Sixteen-month-old North West may not yet be old enough to fully understand the delicious candy that comes along with a good trick-or-treat outing, but she sure does make the sweetest little skunk for Halloween.

Mom Kim Kardashian shared some Instagram pics Friday of her toddler wearing her black and white skunk suit from Pottery Barn Kids, complete with a curled tail and some spiky white fur.

“A skunk is on the loose!” wrote Kardashian, 34, in another shot that shows North romping across a matching black and white checker-boarded floor. “My little stinker is waiting to show daddy her costume. Halloween has come early this morning.”

SwitchCrafted Solves Halloween’s Sugary Situation

10/30/2014 at 06:00 PM ET

The Halloween witches are brewing up something sweet!

Before your costumed kiddies crash from a surplus of sugary treats, cuddle up with your little ones to read the tale of SwitchCrafted – and introduce them to a few wise witches, who are in need of a helping hand.

Written by Audrey Kinsman, the 20-page book tells the story of the Switch Witches, a group of whimsical witches who rely on piles of candy that they can convert into energy.

And from the fuel for their brooms (because the gas station just won’t do!) to keeping their haunted huts warm, the little ladies are in need of a whole lot of colorful confections.
