happy Halloween! a group of children in suits and with pumpkins in the homeHalloween is such a fun time for students — and it can be for teachers too! If your school allows students to dress up, why not join in on the fun? Your students will be sure to get a kick out of your more playful self. If it’s been awhile since you dressed up for Halloween, we’ve got you covered. Follow these education inspired Halloween costumes for teachers.

Smarty Pants
This one is easy peasy! All it takes is a quick trip to your local grocery store and buy a package of smarties. Use glue dots or double sided tape to stick them all over a pair of pants!

Green with Envy
This one is for a group of two people. So grab your student teacher, aid or another teacher on your team for this simple yet funny costume. One person wears green (or colors their face with green face-paint) and the other person wears a white t-shirt with the word “envy” on it. Use iron-on letters, fabric markers, or puffy paint for the lettering.

Smart Cookie
Dust off that old cap and gown and find cookie stickers or glue dot on print outs of cookies and stick them all over your gown. Double the fun if you bring cookies to school to share with your students.

The Grammar Police
Get a police costume and grab an old black shirt. Write “Grammar Police” on the front of the shirt.

A Book Fairy
Take an old book, open it and use it as wings across your back. Make a wand and skirt out of rolled up newspapers or torn out pages from a book.

Smartphone Apps
Instagram, snapchat, Google, watch out! Each teacher on your team can wear images of their favorite apps.
