Play Bingo Boo

This is a fun Halloween bingo spin off, perfect for kids working on their letters or handwriting. This printable game can be played with candy corn as markers. Or you can slip the cards into page protectors and use dry erase markers to mark each square they’ve gotten by writing the letter. This would be fun as a classroom party station or at home for a Halloween play date.

Go Boo-ing!

My kids LOVE a night of sneakily delivering goodies to their friends. Print these free Boo tags, put together a few fun items from the dollar store and go make some memories serving others! I bet you know of a family that could use the cheering up.

Go Trunk or Treating

Best bang for your buck as far as candy collection, wouldn’t you agree? If you know of a school, church or community trunk or treat I think they’re a great safe way to have some Halloween fun. If you need some ideas for how to decorate your trunk, check out my pirate ship trunk!

Plan a Family Costume

Sometimes getting the whole family involved in a theme can get everyone excited! If you have something the whole family is into maybe you can start to put together a group costume. If you need some ideas to get you going check out my post on group Halloween costume ideas.

Write a Ghost Story

This fun Mad Libs type style free Ghost story printable is a fun way to get in the spooky spirit! And if kids are wanting to really exercise their creativity there’s a blank version where they can write their own ghost story from scratch. Then take turns sharing them with the lights off, and of course you need some flashlights held under your chin for extra effect 😉
