All of our fun Halloween activity printables will open in a new window. Each has a solution sheet attached except for the ‘How Many Bats?’ activity which has the answer given at the very bottom of this page. Have a look at our very own free printable Halloween Colouring Pages for October 31st too.
Looks like the time has finally come for us to be a bit more grown up! For the first 10 years of www.free-for-kids.com we were solely focussed on producing content for kids and teenagers but we think we’ve been ‘missing a trick’ by not extending our subject matter into the curious world of adults and parents. As always we have a lot to say about – well – everything really and this new avenue will let us explore products, knowledge, experiences and services that we think will bring many benefits to our older visitors.
How Many Bats?
This Halloween activity sheet will send you kids batty! …. the owl perched in a tree doesn’t look very impressed either. Bats and vampires are popular themes and images on October 31st so this page is covered with dozens of flying bats and it’s your job to count each and every one of them.
The answer is given at the bottom of this web page.
Halloween ‘Spot The Difference’
This ‘Spot The Difference’ puzzle shows a montage of All Hallows Eve icons such as a witch flying on a broomstick, a scary cat on a pumpkin, and a few grave stones. The two images look identical but there are seven differences for kids to find. These activities are always popular with children and make a fun addition to a Halloween party (sometime between the apple bobbing and carving jack-o’-lanterns).
Spider’s Web Maze
Anybody with arachnophobia should look away now! This fun printable maze is in the shape of a spider’s web and he’s waiting for his first meal of the day …. just one twang of those spidery threads will tell him exactly where you are!
Make sure this isn’t your very last October 31st!
Halloween Word Search
Another hugely popular kids’ puzzle sheet for a Halloween party … our printable wordsearch sheet not only features a dozen creepy and mystical words to find but there’s also 15 occurrences of the word ‘BAT’ to find too.
For a party activity, try creating teams of two or three players to go against each other to see who can find all of the words the quickest. The winning team gets a prize …. and the losing team should be given an unpleasantly gross forfeit … probably involving cold spaghetti …. but we’ll let you decide.
Some of the best kids’ Halloween activities involve art and craft. Just to help you out with any spooky Halloween arts and craft activities you may have planned we’ve put together a printable sheet of black and white images which can be cut out and used to create a spooky scene, a scary mobile, or anything else that involves cut-and-paste. You can of course use a photocopier to enlarge the pictures or shrink them.
There are 59 (fifty nine) bats on the ‘How Many Bats?’ sheet.
