School spirit is important at any educational institution. One way that school spirit can be generated is through organizing theme days that enhance a student's overall academic experience. One of the most popular theme days in elementary school, middle school or high school is Twin Day.
While options for Twin Day are plentiful, one idea that has remained constant over the years is simply to dress identically. There are no funky costumes or outrageous ideas required if going over the top is not your thing. Simply choose a friend with taste similar to your own and search your wardrobes for items that look nearly identical. Consider very basic items; nearly everyone owns a pair of blue jeans, a plain white t-shirt and a black headband (for girls) or black baseball cap (for boys).
Peanut Butter and Jelly
Dressing as people or things that go together, but that are not the same, will definitely make a statement and be a fun alternative on Twin Day. Choose a friend and together dress as peanut butter and jelly. You can choose to craft elaborate costumes that resemble slices of bread: one smeared with peanut butter and one smeared with jelly; or you can choose to simply wear t-shirts that announce the costume. The twin dressed as peanut butter can wear a brown t-shirt with PEANUT BUTTER written across it, and the twin dressed as jelly can wear a purple t-shirt with JELLY written across it.
Thing 1 and Thing 2
One idea that's used a lot, but that is always fun and entertaining is Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss' classic Cat In The Hat. One reason why so many people choose this option for Twin Day is because of the costume's simplicity -- but also its inventiveness. All you need are red sweatsuits on which you can pin large white paper circles with "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" written on them. Electric blue wigs are optional!
Good Twin and Evil Twin
Another inventive -- yet simple -- idea for a Twin Day is to dress as the good twin and the evil twin. In this case, outfits do not even need to be identical. For the good twin, choose an all-white outfit, curl your hair in ringlets and perhaps add a halo ornament over your head. For the evil twin, dress all in black, tease your hair into a tangled, crazy-looking mess and consider adding devil horns to a headband atop your head. This idea can also be easily modified if you want to go as Angel and Devil twins.
