Here we are, in October already! The other day my son asked me when Halloween was and I explained it was on October 31st, the last day of the month. He then asked me why everyone starts putting up Halloween decorations at the beginning of October if the day isn’t until the very end of the month. I explained that people like to celebrate events and seasons and sometimes it’s fun to make Halloween last a little longer by celebrating it all month long. Ask any teacher and I’m sure they’ve got Halloween (and Thanksgiving for us Canadians) on the brain all month.
Here’s a great activity that you can start planning now with a site called HalloweenScavengerHunt.com! It’s designed by age group so that the hunts and clues you print out are age appropriate so parents and teachers can find specific scavenger hunt clues for their kids.
Once your design is chosen you can then start choosing fun clues to engage kids in the hunt! The clue below is for ages 6-9:
Once you complete all the pieces needed for the hunt, you can purchase it, to print, for $14.99 via PayPal. Up until this point, you’re able to use the site for free to create your scavenger hunt. One important (and great!) thing to note is that the $14.99 gives you unlimited scavenger hunts to create and print for a full month – so a teacher could use this for several projects, or classrooms, or a parent could use this to complete a Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas scavenger hunt for the kids all within a 30 day time-frame.
Have fun creating and checking out this great resource!
