Halloween is a perfect time to talk to kids about safety. Here’s a cool resource for teachers from the National Crime Prevention Council and it’s got age appropriate online activities for kids (featuring McGruff the Crime Fighting Dog) as well as resources for adults teaching children. The teacher who submitted this idea learned about it from a police officer who also included these cute Halloween themed pages to remind kids how to be safe while trick-or-treating: page 1 page 2
The point of Halloween is to get tons of candy… or at least that’s what my kids think. So here’s a writing project (that you could use to practice sequencing, transitions, or standard paragraph structure) to tie in kids plans for scoring loads of candy! Some of my kids have it figured out! They say to bring a little kid with you, preferably one who’s really adorable. They also told me to smile really big, so people want to give you more. Anyway, see what your kids come up with! Fun free Halloween writing project: How to get lots of Halloween Candy PDF Enjoy!
