As Halloween approaches, we often do special activities at my studio or allow students to wear costumes. Many teachers like to reward their classes with a special treat, which historically has been candy. I feel that as dance teachers, we have a responsibility to celebrate healthy choices and I like to search out alternatives to candy–especially with all of the food-allergies and preferences that my students have.
Such an easy and low-cost “treat”
This is my choice for this year – trying something new and potentially something that they kids can take with them on Halloween. I found glow bracelets on Amazon for $8.79 for 100 bracelets, so for under $20 I was able to get enough to cover my 16 weekly classes.
Stickers, Stamps & Temporary Tattoos
My elementary-aged kids love stickers, stamps and tattoos. Not sure if their parents love them as much, but its fun to do a grab-bag of these items.
“Haunted House” Class Picture
This one is fun to do with the older kids or students who love social media… the “Haunted House” class picture – take a group picture but tell your students to make a face like they are going through a haunted house – leads to lots of funny faces!
Slap on a filter/background and send to your students and watch them share 🙂
