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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
In the original publication of this post, I had linked to an “Under A Rest” costume with a person underneath a quarter rest. I have since removed this suggestion as I reflected on how this may be hurtful, especially to students who may have incarcerated family members or friends.
