10 Halloween Snacks for Your Classroom Party

1. Fruit and veggie cups with dipping sauce are always a hit with little kids. I even created printable treat toppers for you that say “Fruit Doesn’t Scare Me!” or “Veggies Don’t Scare Me!” Get your copy HERE.

2. Ghost Bananas and Tangerine Pumpkins: These are quite possibly the cutest snacks ever! Invite kids to add 3 chocolate chips to half a banana to make ghosts. The pumpkins are peeled tangerines with a piece of celery added as a stalk. Eating fruit has never been so much fun!

3. Kids will love eating the fruit from these Pumpkin Fruit Skewers!

4. Mummy Juice Boxes are super easy to make and even more fun to drink!

5. Spiders on a Log: A fun Halloween twist on the traditional ants on a log snack; celery, peanut butter, and raisins. Invite children to spread peanut butter on celery stalks and add raisins to represent spiders. Even your littlest party goers can make this one. You can use cream cheese as an alternative if you have children with peanut allergies.

6. These Gluten Free Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats from Mess for Less look delicious!

7. Spider Web Pizzas: Here’s one that older children can make on their own. Invite kids to spread pizza sauce on a tortilla or English muffin, and then tear strips of sliced cheese to create a web. Toast the webs in your toaster oven and add olives to represent spiders.

8. Crafty Morning shares how to make these yummy and adorable Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas!

9. Who could resist these not-so-spooky Mini Jack-O-Lantern Cheese Wheels from Mama Papa Bubba?

10. String Cheese Witches Brooms are sure to wow the crowd! Simply add a chunk of string cheese to the bottom of a straight pretzel and tie with a string of chive. Slice the bottom of the cheese up to create the whisps of the room. This would be the perfect snack to go along with the book Room on the Broom!

Halloween One-to-One Correspondence Activities

These Halloween counting activities will make learning how to count fun for young children.

Here are some super simple activities to incorporate one to one correspondence skills into your daily math routine.

One to One Correspondence Halloween Counting Activities for Preschool and Kindergarten

One to One Correspondence Activities

One-to-one correspondence is the act of counting each object once and only once.

Many young children in preschool and kindergarten have difficulty learning how to count objects individually.

Providing young children in preschool and kindergarten with lots of practice to develop their one-to-one correspondence skills will ensure they do not struggle with more complex math skills later.

One-to-One Correspondence Counting Spider Rings

Counting Spider Rings


What could be more fun than playing with spider rings and spider webs?

For the counting spider rings activity you will need the following supplies:

  • Paper plates
  • String
  • Spider rings (dollar store)
  • Scissors
  • One foam die

Start by cutting notches around the outside of small paper plates. You will need one paper plate, or spider web, for each child in your small group.

Next, wrap the string around the plates using the notches to hold the string in place. If your students are too young to complete this step independently you could prepare the webs for them, but if they are old enough this will be great fun!

Each child in your small group should have their own web. Now, place a container of spider rings in the middle of the table.

To play, the children will take turns rolling the die and placing the corresponding number of spiders in their webs.

One to One Correspondence Counting Pumpkins Math for Preschool and Kindergarten

Counting Pumpkins


Your kids will love using the grabber to count and place the pumpkins in the pumpkin patch! Using the grabber has other educational benefits such as the development of fine motor skills.

Here are the supplies you will need for the counting pumpkins activity:

  • Orange pom-poms
  • Grabber (dollar store)
  • Paper
  • Green marker
  • One foam die

Start by drawing some vines with your green marker on the paper. Then, place a bowl of pom-poms on the left side of the table and the paper with the vines on the right side of the table.

Invite students in your small group to take turns rolling the die and using the grabber to place the corresponding number of pom-poms in the pumpkin patch.

Be sure to have the students stand in front of the table with the pom-poms on their left to reinforce left to right progression.

When students transfer the pom-poms from the bowl to the paper they are also crossing the midline.

For older students, or students who are ready, you can use a ten frame to represent the pumpkin patch to support fluency within ten.

One to One Correspondence Pumpkin Seed Counting Activity

Counting Pumpkin Seeds


Use real pumpkin seeds for this fun, hands-on counting game!

  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Mini pumpkin containers (dollar store)
  • One foam die

Start by giving each child in your small group a small pumpkin container. Next, place a cup of pumpkin seeds in the middle of the table.

Children will take turns rolling the die and counting out the corresponding number of pumpkin seeds into their little pumpkin.

Skeleton Syllable Activity

Forget spooky or scary, these Halloween skeleton gloves are just plain fun!

As teachers and parents we know the importance of making learning fun for kids. The more hands-on activities we provide the longer kids will stay engaged and on-task!

The cheaper the better, so when I found these fun gloves at the dollar store I knew they would make a fun learning activity.

Skeleton Syllable Activity


Syllables are the parts in words, such as the three parts we hear in the word banana (ba/na/na).

Syllabication is the ability to hear and count, blend, segment, and delete syllables in words.

Syllabication is one of several crucial components of phonological awareness skills which create a strong foundation for future reading.

When children in pre-k and kindergarten can hear and identify syllables in words they will be ready to decode unknown words they encounter in text later, when learning how to read. Without syllabication skills a child may struggle with reading later.

Skeleton Syllable Supplies


Here are the supplies you will need to create your own skeleton syllable activity.

I found the skeleton gloves in the Dollar Spot at Target.

Skeleton Syllable Activity Directions


First, print and laminate your syllable cards. Next, cut the cards apart and place in front of your small group.

Then, show the children each card and ask them to identify the costume pictured.

Now, show them the cards again and invite them to identify the syllables in each word by clapping their hands.

Finally, demonstrate how to put on the gloves and clap syllables.

Your students will have buckets of Halloween fun drawing cards and clapping syllables while wearing these skeleton gloves!

After each child draws a card they can place it in a bag or basket labeled with a number to indicate the number of syllables.

Could you do this activity with regular gloves or mittens? Absolutely!
