Halloween in school is nuts. Not only do you have to keep your students focused while they’re on a sugar buzz, but they’ll be dressed up like what’s his face from whatever that popular new show is. AND you need come up with a costume that’s cool (and totally appropriate for school). Just what you needed – another thing to worry about. Well, here are a few easy Halloween costumes for teachers that can be thrown together at the last minute (and when I say “last minute,” I mean, 2 days – 2 hours before school).
OPTION 1: Children’s Book Characters
Viola Swamp from “Miss Nelson is Missing!” by Harry Allard (source)
Camilla from “A Bad Case of the Stripes” by David Shannon (source)
Rainbow Fish from “Rainbow Fish” by Marcus Pfister (source)
Professor Trelawny from the Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling (source)
(If you feel the need to do a group costume)
Madeline, Miss Clavel and the girls from the Madeline series
by Ludwig Bemelmans (source)
Emily from “Clifford the Big Red Dog” by Norman Bridwell (source)
The coconut tree from “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”
by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault (source)
The Giving Tree from “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein (source)
OPTION 2: Puns
I don’t need to caption these. They’re pretty self-explanatory!
