Did Halloween sneak up on you with not even enough time to amazon prime something to your door? NO worries my Super Teacher friend! Head to the closet and see if you have something that would work with one of these 5 last minute Halloween costumes for teachers.
Teacher Halloween Costume #1: Quidditch Player
Have an old graduation robe hiding in the back of your closet? Throw it on, grab a broom, make a name tag if you have time and you’re a Quidditch player. A wand can be easily made with rolled up construction paper.
Teacher Halloween Costume #2: Koo Koo Kangaroo (Brian or Neil)
Have sweatpants, black shirt, and a headband? Get some yellow construction paper, cut out the letters K-O-O and be Brian or Neil. If you have a sweet fanny pack or mustache add it in! (I ordered my shirt online from the Koo Koo Kangaroo website last year out of laziness).
Teacher Halloween Costume #3: Sports Enthusiast
Have a team jersey or sports shirt? Throw it on with jeans and you’re a sports player/fan. Simple! (Cubs fans – I know you’ll be celebrating for years to come!)
Teacher Halloween Costume #4: Super Teacher
Do you have sticky label paper and a plain t-shirt? Print out a free super teacher pattern, cut it out, stick it on and be a Super Teacher. Mask/tights/headband not necessary but certainly welcome.
Teacher Halloween Costume #5: Roadie/Band Super Fan
And my favorite . . . Fish that old concert tee (I’ll be paying my respects to Chris Cornell this year) out of your closet, put on some comfy pants and Converse. Then take your teacher badge, cut out a cardstock square that says ROAD CREW and tape it on top. Got a guitar or a fake microphone (testing, testing, 1,2,3)? Take those as props and enjoy your day as a ROADIE. This one can also be recycled for career day. 🙂
Costume done! Now to make it through a week of Halloween fun!
