I’m a Parragon Books Book Buddy, so I was sent the coloring books featured in this post in order to review them. All opinions are my own.
Now that it’s October I feel like it’s time we can really start thinking about Halloween. I just pulled the fall decorations out of the attic and am slowly starting to distribute them around the house.
Halloween Coloring Books
The two Disney books come with four crayons and more than 30 stickers each, and have activity and coloring pages. They also come with codes for free digital storybooks on the Disney Story Central App.
My Halloween Activity Bucket
These books inspired me to pull together a simple Halloween activity bucket, mostly with items we already had in the house and a couple of things I bought at the craft store.
In addition to the coloring books, there are regular books:
- Ladybug Girl and the Dress-Up Dilemma
- Splat the Cat What Was That?
- a board book that’s just called Halloween
- Dora’s Spooky Hallowen
- Duck & Goose Find a Pumpkin
- Fall Leaves (an easy reader book)
All of these books have been in our house for years, and I should probably find some new ones because three of them are board books. Still, she likes them for the couple of weeks she sees them each year.
There are foam pumpkin shapes leftover from a project we did last year. There’s a Halloween pencil from somewhere, and a couple of little Halloween dolls that come out every year around this time.
I added a Perler Scaredy Cat kit (they also have zombies, spooky eyes, spiders, witches and other fun stuff), some new Halloween stickers (because I can’t find ours from last year) and some wooden shapes and a bat bead necklace I bought last year.
Between reading, coloring, making the melty bead project, decorating foam pumpkins and using Halloween stickers on everything, that should give us a lot of simple, fun Halloween activities to get us through the season.
I loaded all the goodies into our Halloween candy bowl, which we’ll have to clear out at some point, but I love having it all corralled together.
Need more Halloween activities? Over at Craft Gossip Lesson Plans I’ve shared pumpkin learning activities as well as fall learning activities and apple activities, which have nothing to do with Halloween but are still lots of fun.
