There is no way that I would be able to accomplish all of these activities during the month of October and I know each of your kids are different and are interested in different things. I also know that some Halloween themes (like ghosts and witches) are avoided by some families.

That way you can easily scan and find the types of activities your kids would be interested in!
For each Halloween themed section below I tried to include a...
- sensory play activity
- fine motor activity
- movement activity
- alphabet activity
- arts & craft project
- number activity
