Halloween Ideas for the Classroom


Eek! It's that time of year again! Halloween will be here before we know it and I have some ideas on how you can bring a little Halloween fun into your classroom! Whether you are having a party or not, these are things I have come across in the past, tried and enjoyed with my second graders, or look very promising and fun!

1. Estimation Game
Easy and fun! Fill a clear container with candy corn, plastic spider rings (like these at Amazon), fake eyeball erasers (seriously - check them out here - I laughed when I found them), or other small items. Put out blank paper, pencils and a small basket for kids to write their names and guess! The winner gets the glory and you can split the items in the jar among the whole class.


2. Coloring Pages
Halloween Coloring Pages are simple and kids always love having the chance to color! You can find them for free in tons of places.I like these from Learning with the Owl on Teachers Pay Teachers. These from Art with Jenny K cost $, but I have used them and they are pop art inspired and very engaging and beautiful!

3. Halloween Lego Games 
Pretty much like it sounds! You need LEGO bricks and the directions which you can find here at teachMama!

4. Magic Pumpkin Science
 I love squeezing Science in whenever I can and Steve Spangler is a great resources. Check out his Magic Pumpkin Science at his blog here!

5.  Party Science Station
There are some cool and engaging experiment ideas which include ghostly goo, magic pumpkin potion and more. Check out some  ideas here at Preschool Powol  and here at Growing a Jeweled Rose! 

I have three resources for you at my own TpT store with a Halloween theme!
