Tips for Picking Your Halloween Costume to Wear to School

When selecting a Halloween costume to wear to work as a teacher, keep these tips in mind!

1. Mobility and Comfort

  • Opt for a costume that allows you to move around comfortably in the classroom. You'll still need to teach and be able to move around!
  • Consider the weather. If it's warm in the classroom, don't choose a costume that is like a warm onesie!

2. Price

  • Keep the cost of your teacher costume in mind, as you don't want to spend too much on a costume that you might only wear for one day.
  • Look for creative and cost-effective DIY costume ideas that won't break the bank.

3. Educational Tie-Ins

  • If possible, select a costume related to a book or historical figure that you've covered in class.

4. Student-Friendly Choices

  • Consider whether your costume will be something your students will recognize and enjoy. If you dress up as a character from before your kids were born, they won't know what you are dressed up as!  
  • Avoid costumes that might be overly scary too.

5. Accessibility 

  • Ensure that your teacher Halloween costume doesn't hinder your ability to move around.
  • Avoid costumes with masks or props that could be problematic in a classroom setting.

Summary – Best Teacher Halloween Costumes

In summary, there are lots of Halloween costume ideas for teachers. You can either go with a school-related Halloween costume, an easy DIY Halloween costume for teachers, a fun group Halloween costume for teachers, or just a simple Halloween costume from Amazon!
