Super Simple Halloween Costumes
The great thing about dressing up like Pippi Longstocking is that nothing has to match! Slip on an old smock dress, put your hair in pigtails, don some mismatched socks and shoes and you are ready to go. A few large freckles on your face and you will be the cutest Pippi in the whole school.
There’s no need to be a mad scientist this Halloween, but you can be a silly one! Tease your hair out and spray with a liberal amount of hairspray to keep it looking a wild and crazy throughout the school day. A white lab coat that has pockets that have been filled with plastic insects, a magnifying glass, and other strange science materials are all that you need. This costume is also a great way to get your students excited about doing some pumpkin science lessons during the day!
Swap costumes with another teacher in your building! Not only will you each get to be something you have not been, but it will not cost you anything. Think of it as costume recycling! For more variety, get all of the teachers in your school in on the idea and have a costume swap a few days before Halloween.
