Are you ready for Halloween? Teacher halloween costumes can be time consuming to put together! And most schools don’t allow students or teachers to dress-up for Halloween any longer, but many do have a “Book Character Parade” instead. So here is a super simple and easy idea for preschool teachers.
Teacher Halloween Costumes
I love Halloween and would like to dress-up for the kids, but I am always too busy to put together a good teacher halloween costume. Besides, how many Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s do you really need in a parade?
One year we had a staff development day on Halloween and several of the teachers arrived wearing unique shirts and teacher accessories. I was inspired by this idea so I made my own t-shirt, you can see the front of the shirt above and the back below.
You Can’t Scare Me I’m a Teacher Shirt
After I made my own shirt I found one on Amazon that is similar.
You know you are a dedicated teacher when you do your nails Halloween style! These Halloween nail stickers are super easy to use.
What would match the orange teacher shirt and nail polish better than a pair of orange Crocs with Halloween jibbitz?
