Spooky season is here (so is spooky season memes!), and nothing screams Halloween quite like a good meme. Yes, we're talking the dancing person with a pumpkin on their head and "It's frickin' bats! I love Halloween." Just when the spooky elements seem to be a little too much (is that even a thing?), have a few laughs at these funny Halloween memes for kids and grown-ups alike. Peruse them while deciding on yourย big family Halloween costumeย or before catchingย a spooky Halloween movieย this year.

Laugh out loud with these spooky Halloween memes

1. Ghost in residence

OK, consider us spooked. Honestly, though, the ghost can stay if they just help wash a few dishes now and then.

2. July is the new October

"C'mon kids, we're going to Target!" You've gotta get those $3 pumpkins before all the other moms do, right?

3. The muscular system gives fright

This one's especially funny for kids who love science. It's a valid point, though. Those muscular system textbook drawings are enough to make our adult stomachs feel a little sick.

4. Nighttime giggles

Parents should really implement their own screen time limits, because these late night meme and TikTok sessions are getting a little out of hand.

5. Human stories for ghosts

Of all the ghosts and goblins that could be out there, we're truly the most frightening creatures!

6. Waving the kids on the bus in October

This is a dead ringer for what we look like every weekday morning as we watch the kids get on the bus.

7. Sharing is caring

No, not the gumdrop buttons! Honestly, though, the willpower to live in a house made of candy and not eat it is unmatched. We can't even stop ourselves from sneaking at least one piece of candy from the kids' Halloween buckets.

8. Cobwebs are a fashion statement

All of those cobwebs are supposed to be there, obviously.

9. Position is important!

Let this also be a solid reminder that we don't run with scissors, kids!

10. Storage advice

OK, so this one is best for older kids who won't start believing that there are child-eating witches flying around on Halloween.

11. Fun size < Full size

That's why we might have to hit the house that gives out full-size candy bars a couple times tonight. Just throw on another costume!

12. Not everyone wants to be a princess

This Halloween costume wins. Empty out the candy buckets. This kid should get all the candy for this level of creativity.

13. Fall season loading...

What's not to love? Spooky season is on its wayโ€ฆthe kids go back to schoolโ€ฆand it's finally cool enough to wear your favorite sweaters.

14. Mom buns unite

It might be the scariest costume of all. We can't even remember the last time our hair wasn't up in a bun.

15. Blame the cat

So, who spilled the box of cereal? Was it the kids, the cat or the resident house ghost?

16. Even vampires hate math

We couldn't have spooky season memes without Count Dracula and the dreaded, math!

17. The ultimate trade-off

Sorry sweetie, these are just the rules.

18. Bedside haunts

Honestly, what a great way to save some money this Halloween season!

19. A little hoarse

This one is just too cute.

20. Stealth is key

Is this considered a superhero power?

21. In-season

Fresh is best.

22. Candy wrappers galore

The kind of budget-friendly costume you have to pay zero dollars for.

23. Is this a fall option?

Now this is a first-class ride.
