Halloween Resources, Freebies, and Fun Stuff



We are very excited about Halloween! A couple of days and we'll have the party! We're going to have a costume parade and have some fun activities!
If you still haven't decided what to do with the kids this year, here are some ideas:

  • Spider Ball Toss Game 
  • Tic Tac Toe with pumpkins (freebie coming soon!)
  • make play dough faces on pumpkins
  • paint ghosts, pumpkins, bats on the windows
    Nea, my awesome partner, made this village with adhesive black paper
  • make a Vampire Photo Prop – I had some IKEA cardboard boxes around the house, so I decided to paint this Dracula. I’m going to cut the face out and the kids will be able to take photos looking like a vampire. Our theme for this Halloween is Transylvania. Muhaha! 
  • Explore pumpkins by using them as playdough props, hull pumpkins to see what’s inside, use all senses to learn about pumpkins (taste baked pumpkins, touch the seeds, look at it, smell it when it’s raw and when it’s baked), paint with them, do all sorts of experiments. Here’s a resource that might come in handy when learning about pumpkins: Exploring Pumpkins: Coloring Pages and Task Cards {Pre-K, K, 1st}. This resource contains some coloring and tracing pages and a mini-book about pumpkins (with and without tasks, C and B&W versions). Please check the preview for more information.

  • My kids love mazes – especially when we use dry-erase markers! Here are some printable Halloween Mazes, Tangles, and Paths {Different Difficulty Levels}. This resource contains 77 mazes (C and B&W) in different difficulty levels. I created both C and B&W versions, to better suit your needs. I printed the color mazes and paths without the name on the top right corner for the hallway. I laminated them and stuck them on the wall with some blue tack. While waiting to wash their hands, the kids can do something fun. So far, these have kept them busy. Apart from candy corn, lollipops, and chocolate bars, the cute characters can go looking for apples and bananas. Please download the preview for more information.
