Spooky Halloween Activities For Kids

No Tricks — Just Treats

Halloween also known as All Hallows’ Eve, or All Saints’ Eve, is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October.

Halloween is one of the most fun holidays. Kids love the spooky monsters, sounds, music, dances, treats, traditions, haunted houses, and costumes that surround the holiday.

As a parent, or a teacher, you can capitalize on this time to help kids learn while celebrating the holiday.

Use the holiday to inspire your students or kids writing spooky stories.

How-to Halloween Writing

For younger kids, Halloween can be a great time to teach instructional or “how to” writing. Allow kids to write their stories while choosing the right costume, how to plan the best route for trick-or-treating and how to host the best Halloween party.

Sometimes writing can be tough, but when you have a list of great ideas to inspire your students, it is very often the writing experience begins to flow and becomes so much easier.
