Are you looking for the perfect Halloween costume for teachers? Students just love it when their teachers come dressed up. It’s super fun to collaborate with your team and dress up together. I hope that these teacher costumes give you ideas that are fun and simple.
All of these costume ideas and pictures were shared by teachers in my Not So Wimpy Third Grade Facebook group.
Teachers can’t go wrong dressed as crayons!
The best part is that this costume choice works well for teacher teams and even teams with male teachers.
This costume is perfect if you are dressing up as a book character. You can use the book The Day the Crayons Quit or Harold and the Purple Crayon.
Crayon shirts can be purchased HERE on Amazon.
Our kids just love emojis. It’s almost like an alternative alphabet that can be used to describe all kinds of feelings!
These costumes are simple to make, perfect for large teams, and can be used for female and male teachers.
It’s lots of fun to dress up as school supplies! How fun are these Expo markers?
Again, this idea is perfect for a team!
Pinkalicious and Friends
I love the Pinkalicious books! This is a good team costume idea for a female team. It is another great choice if you need to dress as a character from a book.
If You Give a….
…Mouse a Cookie
…Moose a Muffin
…Pig a Party
…Cat a Cupcake
Aren’t these fun book characters for a teacher team to dress up as for Halloween?!
Koo Koo Kanga Roo
My third graders loved Koo Koo Kanga Roo songs on Go Noodle! These costumes would be a hit for sure. (But I would probably be singing Pop See Ko all day.?)
My teammate and I didn’t even plan this, but we both came dressed as Waldo/Wenda. It was perfect for our book character parade around the school. The kids loved it!
You can grab a simple Waldo costume HERE on Amazon.
This is a fun costume idea for you and your teacher bestie! It’s another great choice if you want to dress up as a book character.
This brings me back to my childhood for sure! This is a fun costume idea for a larger team and can accommodate male and female teachers. It would be a simple DIY costume with some t-shirts and felt.
Teachers are the glue that hold it all together, right? Plus, we are suckers for school supplies.
I love the tutus!
Teachers are always hard at work keeping the running records up to date. The play on words is fun!
- Dalmations (Would your principal go as Cruella?)
- Pete and Cat (The whole team can do different colored shoes.)
- Care Bears
- Super Heroes
- Different Idioms
- The Little Old Lady Who Swallowed a… (each person picks a different book)
- Rock, Paper and Scissors

Check out my Halloween Trick or Treat Project Based Learning. This activity puts students in charge of planning the perfect Halloween night.

It’s the perfect way to celebrate the spirit of Halloween while still tackling essential math skills.
