My kids are telling me that October begins next week (where the heck did September go?!) Which means it’s time to countdown to one of their most favorite holidays — Halloween!

31 Free Printable Halloween Games & Activities

Dressing up, candy, carving pumpkins, candy, decorating, more candy…

As I’m sure you know from reading many of our favorite Halloween activities, I’m not a big fan of the whole focus-on-the-candy part of the holiday (even though chocolate is a wonderful thing 😉

Instead, I like to have non-candy alternatives for us to enjoy during the month! I LOVE keeping a basket with paper games & activities near our kitchen table — it encourages reading, writing, family bonding and (most importantly) some laughs each day.

In addition to all the FREE games & activities, we also love to have a few family favorite items in our seasonal basket (I’ve included affiliate links in case you’d like to add them to yours):

All of the wonderful activities on our list below include FREE printables!

Print out activities and let your kids choose one each afternoon as a surprise 🙂  It’s a great after school activity and fun for family time on the weekends too!  You can also use them in the classroom for a Halloween-themed writing or creative thinking area.

You’ll find scavenger hunts, Halloween word games, printable masks, pumpkin stencils and more!  Chose one for each day of October or do a 13 days of Halloween countdown near the end of the month.  And if you LOVE Halloween be sure to check out the Halloween Printable Activities & Countdown with TONS of fun ideas for families!

Whichever activities you choose, have a ‘haunting’ good time this month — Happy Halloween!
