Every year, I struggle with a Halloween costume. The teams of grade-level teachers always have themed looks—the Three Bears or Eeenie Meenie Minie and Moe–but I don’t have a team. I also don’t have kids at home to inspire me into painting my hair pink or my nails black.
A few years ago, I found the solution, and now–no worries. Even if it slips by my consciousness until I arrive at school on our Halloween Parade Day to the sight of goblins, Dr Who’s and other fantasies, I’m ready. Here’s my costume:
I print and pin (some years, I can’t find a pin and use a paper clip–every classroom has those) it to my shirt. Surprisingly (or not) I’m a hit.
If you want a copy for an emergency of your own, here’s the doc: halloween costume
