Encourage your children to make up their own verses to reflect the costumes they'll be wearing.
Below are some sample verses for inspiration!
I'm gonna be a ghost, gonna wear a funny sheet
Gonna scare everybody, I meet along the street
You'll see me at the door, with all my spooky friends
Screaming for candy, with wide open hands.
I'm gonna be a fairy princess, as pretty as can be
Dancing from door to door, you'll really love me.
I'm looking for a prince, who won't give me a fright
We'll live happily ever after, well at least for tonight.
I'm gonna be a cavegirl, living years ago
Playing with the dinosaurs, it's fun to watch them go
You'll see me on the street, with clothing made of fur
With all my spooky monster friends, who are gonna cause a stir.
I'm gonna be a witch, put snakes in my hair,
Everyone will run away, but I don't really care.
I'll look really freaky, riding on my broom
My cat will be behind me, screeching at the moon
I'm gonna be a cowboy, a-ridin' on the range
I'll be ridin' on my horse, and I'll be acting really strange
I won't be making spooky sounds, I won't be saying 'boo'
But I'll be riding
Spooky, spooky, very spooky,
Don't look at me cause I'm too kooky
Kooky, kooky, very kooky,
Give me a treat, give me a cookie
Cookie, cookie, come and lookie,
Look at the way I eat my cookie.
