Word Games For Kids: Halloween Printables

The excitement is building over here in anticipation of our Halloween festivities. We love Halloween activities for kids. I created a packet of Halloween Word Games for kids because it’s getting hard for them to concentrate on school work and I wanted to spice it up a bit.

These would also be great for a class or co-op party. My oldest is ten and still enjoys word games and I love creating them for her as well.

I have to admit I’m not a crazy huge fan of Halloween, but I love seeing the excitement it builds in my littles. We stay away from gory and bloody, and try to create and read things with family friendly characters and ideas.

This set includes three different puzzles; a word search, word scramble, and a crossword puzzle with common Halloween themed words.

Here’s what to do:

Print out this set. I tried not to go to color heavy so you can print these at home. I will definitely laminate these and add them to our dry erase binder. More on that later. Have you child or student follow the short directions and find the Halloween words in each puzzle.


Ideas for Parents and Teachers

  1. When we are in need of a break, I can pull these out in between subjects.
  2. Set a timer to see if you can solve each puzzle in under a minute.
  3.  For younger kids or siblings try reading some fun Halloween books and search for the puzzle vocabulary words in each book.
