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
Rap: 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.
