Enjoy counting down the days with these free printable Halloween games & activities -- one for each day in October!
My kids are telling me that October begins this week (where the heck did September go?!)
Which means it's time to countdown to one of their most favorite holidays -- Halloween!
Dressing up, candy, carving pumpkins, candy, decorating, more candy...
As I'm sure you know from reading some of our Kids in the Kitchen posts, I'm not a big fan of the whole focus-on-the-candy part of the holiday (even though chocolate is a wondeful thing ;)
Instead, I love to surprise them with a fun paper crafts, word games, scavenger hunts and other quick & easy Halloween-themed activities!
31 Free Printable Halloween Games & Activities
All of the wonderful activities on our list include FREE printables -- one for each day of October as a treat for you! Print them off and let your kids choose one each afternoon as a surprise :) Or include them in a countdown calendar that you can make together.
If you'd like to make a few of your own printables, I use PicMonkey: crazy-awesome photo editing and love them! You can do some amazing things with it -- turn the kids into zombies -- or make a Halloween banner or party invitations -- PLUS Picmonkey is free (no kidding!) for all their basic photo editing which includes some of their awesome design features!
Whichever you choose, have a 'haunting' good time this month!
