Did Halloween sneak up on you again this year 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 fit with one of these 5 last minute teacher Halloween costume ideas.
Last Minute Teacher 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.
Last Minute Teacher 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).
Last Minute Teacher 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!)
Last Minute Teacher 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.
Last Minute Teacher 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!
Any other last minute ideas? Leave them in the comments! I would love to hear your amazing ideas!
