Halloween Board Game

This Halloween board game is extra special. In this Halloween board game, kids not only get to play the game, they also get to color it in.

“Coloring with a purpose! I love the idea of having Halloween games to space out during the month and add to the excitement and anticipation. This one is adorable and gives kids the feeling that they made it themselves...”
Make Paper Towel Ghosts

Make ghost decorations for Halloween! They're made out of paper towels and are a cinch to create!

“Doesn't get any simpler than this. Cheap, easy, and super fast Halloween decorations, without a trip to the store. Going to keep this one in mind for the before dinner rush.”
Make a Plastic Cup Pet!

Learning about how plants grow is a building block in the preschool curriculum. Put a fun twist on this science concept with these cup pets.

“This is like a Chia pet, but with a Halloween theme. So cute, I may make a few and line my windowsills with them.”
Paper Pumpkin

These paper pumpkins will make lovely, festive centerpieces in your home this fall.

“A nice alternative to the typical pumpkin jack-o-lantern. Like that it gives preschoolers practice cutting strips with scissors, too.”
Egg Carton Spiders

Get into the Halloween spirit by creating creepy (but cute) spiders from paper egg cartons, paint, and pipe cleaners.

“Simple and maybe not revolutionary, but another super easy craft with supplies I have on hand, for a quick distraction.”
Create a Calendar: October

This October Hallowen calendar helps your child learn the days of the week. Use this October Halloween calendar to celebrate holidays and everyday.

“I'm already hearing a lot of questions about how soon Halloween will come. This October calendar will help my preschool kid visualize how long she has to wait.”
Halloween Cutouts: Spider and Ghost

Color in these spooky Halloween cutouts and hang them on your backpack or bike for some new friends that you can take anywhere.

“Haven't seen anything like this before. Like the idea of Halloween decorations you can take with you!”
Halloween Banner!

This Halloween banner is the perfect decoration for your next Halloween party. Make a Halloween banner with this easy printable.

“This is something both my preschool and elementary kid can help with-- I like that they can work together, but each take a few letters to make their own.”
Bat Flyers

This Halloween-themed bat flyer paper project is perfect for kids who love paper airplanes. The finished flyers will provide hours of eerily fun entertainment.

“All the fun of a paper airplane, but with a bat theme! There was no way my daughter could fold this herself, but she liked "helping". This would also be a cute Halloween treat to stick in a lunchbox as a surprise.”
Printable Board Game: Halloween Match-Up

Here's a simple Halloween card game that you can print out at home.

“We never have enough games at my house. Card games make kids feel grown up, and I don't care if she loses the cards for this Halloween one!”
