A Super Cool Way to Celebrate the Holiday with Your Kids

Halloween is such an amazing holiday to enjoy with your kids. My 5 boys and I have so many happy memories from our special times shared together.

A variety of costumes and decor make it interesting to check out all the creativity and enthusiasm for the holiday. So many cool things to observe!

Since our other printable holiday scavenger hunts (like Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas Lights, Christmas Tree) were so much fun with my boys, I decided that we needed a Halloween version, too.

Creative Ways to Enjoy This Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Your kids will color in the objects when seen or found with this printable (PDF) scavenger hunt with Halloween themes.

To boost creativity and make it easy for your kids to enjoy, I suggest having a variety of coloring tools to pick from, like crayons, color pencils, and fine-tip markers.

My boys and I find this type of clipboard with storage area that opens on the side (not the bottom because your coloring materials can fall out too easily that way!) works well when we’re having fun or learning on-the-go.

If it would be too hard or frustrating to when you’re out-and-about, no worries! Simply make a pencil mark next to the object and color in later 😉

Also, I suggest printing this Halloween scavenger hunt on white cardstock. Regular printer paper will work fine. My boys, however, get excited when doing this type of activity and have a tendency to accidentally rip the paper. Maybe your kids are the same way?

If you’d like to use this printable scavenger hunt again and again, you can laminate it or place in a dry erase sleeve and use dry erase markers.

Tips & Tricks for Having Fun with This Type of Scavenger Hunt

When enjoying this type of outdoor scavenger hunt, you’ll find it helpful to keep these things in mind:

  1. Be prepared: Have those coloring tools ready to go to make it easy to mark off your finds.
  2. Keep it simple: Please don’t feel like you have to find each prompt in one go. Extend your Halloween fun to different dates and times for activities to look forward to spending together.
  3. Make the most of this special time: Even if you’re not really into Halloween, try to get into it for your kids.
  4. Think outside the box: Stuck inside (weather, illness, or other yuckiness)? No worries! You can still enjoy this Halloween scavenger hunt by enjoying it with books, home decor, and videos.
  5. Add your own prompts: Before you head out on your Halloween scavenger hunt, talk about the prompts. Include any extra ideas that your kids have on the back. They can even create doodles as you go along.

*If you’re using this Halloween scavenger hunt with younger kids (or anyone who gets spooked by the holiday), I suggest doing it in your home with age-appropriate decor and resources.
