Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love planning my costume and seeing all of my students dressed up as their favorite characters. Here are some musical ideas to get your creative juices flowing for this year’s costume.

 

Under A Rest

Grab yourself a striped shirt or an orange jumper, print a rest on some card stock, and attach to a headband. You’ve got yourself a very punny costume that your students will love!

Enharmonics

If you have another music teacher at your school or just a friend or significant other that wants to play along, you could dress up as enharmonics. Just pick your favorite pair and puffy paint them on a plain t-shirt.

The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly

This is one of my favorite books and one my students love! Running low on time? Linda from Floating Down the River has a great set that you can easily print, cut out, and tape in a pinch. Check it out here!

Double Bubble

Does your school use thinking maps? Why not turn them into a fun costume? Grab another specials teacher and compare and contrast your hearts out!

Ukulele

This costume would definitely require some creativity and craftiness. With a big piece of card board and some white yarn, you could turn yourself into a musical masterpiece. You could spray paint the body of the ukulele your favorite color!

The Beatles

Why be just one Beatle when you can be all four at once? Pick your favorite Beatle and print out the other three out and glue to cardboard. Bonus points if you carry around a real guitar and sing Beatles songs all day!

Have a creative Halloween costume idea? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
