Today my school had our character parade. We do not have it on Halloween so that it is not associated and parents can’t say we are celebrating Halloween. So we had our character parade today in our bus loop. Everyone dressed up as their favorite book character. The kids wear a costume and bring a book. Then the whole school goes to the bus loop. Each grade gets to parade around the bus loop one time to show off our costumes to all the other grade levels and parents. It’s such a fun morning! I love seeing all the creative costumes! The upper grades do book reports with their costumes but in first grade we just kept it simple this year.
My team dressed up as Camillia Cream from A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon. We had striped socks on our legs and arms, thermometers on rainbow striped shoelaces, rainbow masks from Party City (only $1), and colored/striped lipstick. The Kindergarten team dressed up as Pinkalious, Second grade dressed up as Fancy Nancy and Some other grades dressed up as Rainbow Fish, The Wizard of Oz, and Cloudy with A Chance of Meatballs.
In my class I had five princesses (surprisingly no Elsa’s but one Anna), Buzz from Fly Guy, an army man, a ninja turtle, two transformers, spider girl, a lion, a pirate, a ninja, and Fancy Nancy. The kids and teachers had a great time parading around in their costumes. We all look forward to this every year!
Hope you have a great week and Happy Halloween!
