Might be a horrible idea but does anyone do themed classes for the holidays?

Trying to build a bit of engagement in my kids classes (ages 5 to 12) so thinking of doing a Halloween themed one and then a Christmas themed one.

Still want it to be proper Taekwondo but maybe throw in a bit of a twist when it comes to exercises and warms ups. What can I do for Halloween?

Normally class is generally structured as follows:

Warm up (agility game or exercises)
Basics
Forms
Padwork or some partner work
Fitness based game to finish (relay races, circuit or similar)

For my warm ups I quite often get them to go up and down the room like animals (bear crawls, crab walk etc) or the same but give it superhero names (The Flash = sprinting, Hulk = lunges + smashing hands together). Suggestions for Halloween versions?

Any ideas to adapt the rest of my class?

Weíve done kids come dressed in the costumes for Halloween. They seem to like it. Iíve never attended the kidsí class, so I donít know if they did anything different as far as actual stuff goes.
