Writing in elementary school can be especially tricky to reluctant writers. Some students just aren’t motivated to write unless they are writing about something FUN! I’ve found that students are the most involved in their writing as the holidays approach, especially if the writing is about something they like. These 5 Halloween crafts for kids are a fun way to motivate students to write and get creative.
Candy Corn Halloween Craft
Whether you like candy corn or not, this adorable candy corn craft gives students something fun (and tasty) to write about. The writing templates are blank so they would be perfect for writing about students’ opinions on candy corn. Students can write, “I like/dislike candy corn because….”.
An “I See Candy Corn…” writing prompt is included if you want something simple for students to complete after piecing this craft together! It’s a fun craft to display on a bulletin board that says, “This Class is Sweet” or “Happy Halloween!”
Ghost Halloween Craft for Kids
Halloween is a Spooktacular time to make a ghost craft! The writing templates provided says, ” I See a Ghost” but the blank version leaves the kids with tons of possibilites.
Students can write about their ghost by giving it a name and adding some characteristics. Maybe it’s a nice ghost, a scared ghost, a silly ghost. Let the kids get creative with their writing!
Once their crafts are complete, this craft can be displayed with a bulletin board heading that says, “Second Grade is Spooktacular” or “Happy Halloween From Our Boo Crew!”
A Fun Witch Halloween Craft
Creating this witch writing craft is a ton of fun! Students can color the witch’s skin and hair any color they want! Add the pointed hat and creative writing piece and you have a fun Halloween craft parents will love hanging on to as a keepsake.
If you want to use this craft on a bulletin board, you can use the wording, “What’s Brewing in First Grade” or “Witch’s Brew”. Students can even write the ingredients to their personal witch’s brew! They get really creative while thinking about what might go into a potion.
A Bat Craft for Halloween or Science
Bats are the perfect animal to learn about in the fall. They’re just spooky enough for Halloween but amazing enough to research with your class.
You can pair this writing craft with the Echolocation Research activity! Students will enjoy learning how bats move around, hunt for food and find their homes at night!
Once their crafts are complete, these bats make adorable bulletin boards to share their research or to put under the words, “We’re Batty About Kindergarten!”
Frankenstein Craft The Students Will Love
Do kids still know who Frankenstein is? If not, you can show them with this cute and friendly craftivity. He’s the perfect activity to pair with student’s favorite things about their class or grade level. Once the crafts are complete, you can display them on a bulletin board that says, “Frankly We Love …”!
The template provided lets students write, “I See Frankenstein” and allows them to describe him in their own words.
