Keep your Halloween loving preschooler happy with this adorable printable Halloween coloring and activities book.
We all know that Halloween is just around the corner. Here are some activities to keep your preschooler busy and excited about this special day.
Let’s start with some I Spy Halloween page! It contains some cute Halloween animals, witch and bones. Your preschooler can use a pencil to circle the item and then write down the number in the box. Or you can have her/she color it in using color pencils.
Coloring pages for preschoolers can be a great activity to develop their fine motor skills and promote creativity in a fun way. They require greater attention to detail than coloring pages designed for children of an older age group. All 5 pages allow your kids to do lots of coloring, including the cover page.
You’ll also get a word search. Great for word recognition and prewriting skills.
The last page is a tracing and coloring page, which is so important for learning how to write.
These are great for homeschooling or Halloween party at school or at home. They will learn some prewriting skills such as tracing and coloring, numbers, and word recognition.
Supplies and Printing
printer – I have a similar HP printer that uses INSTANT INK. It’s a monthly subscriptions (I pay $2.99 for 50 pages/month. You can rollover unused pages. Doesn’t matter if you print in color or black and white. You’ll get ink delivery to you before it runs out. You’ll get a mailer also to recycle your old ink.
The kids getting excited about putting on their Halloween costumes and going trick or treating already?
Here is a Halloween coloring and activity book that will keep your kids entertained until Halloween.
Of course, you can also make these books and add some crayons or coloring pencils to give out to the trick or treaters instead of candy.
I’ve given you two options to print this Halloween coloring and activity book out.
One activity per 8.5×11″ paper
Two activities on one 8.5×11 paper. You can leave them as is or fold the paper in half, so you have a book as I created here.
You can always print these on copy paper if you need something swift to entertain the “Mom, I’m bored!” child.
I recommend printing only on one side. I tried printing double-sided on copy paper, and it did not look too pretty. Take a look for yourself in the picture below. See how the maze on the other side of the page can be seen on this page? I’m not loving that!
Also, if your kid decided he/she wants to use a marker it will bleed onto the next activity page if you print on copy paper.
If you want to print double-sided to save paper, I recommend printing on 65 lb cardstock. I’ve used Neena Bright White, which actually is an off-white, not bright white. And I just discovered this Accent Opaque card stock. They are WHITE! So depending on what brightness paper you like you can’t go wrong with either one of this cardstock! You can print double-sided on these and color away with a marker.
There are several ways to turn your pages into a book together.
