Halloween is a great time to go on a walk through the neighbourhood. When my girls were younger they weren’t very keen to check out all the scary Halloween decorations at night, but during the day was a different story. By the light of the day spooky things lose a lot of their – spookiness. We would walk around and talk about how silly and unrealistic the witches were, or how beautiful the ghosts looked as they swayed with the breeze. My eldest daughter, especially, had a hard time separating “real” from “fake” and these walks truly helped her work through her fears.
If you have a little one who isn’t too sure about Halloween decorations that line your neighbourhood streets, why not take her, or him, on a fun Halloween Scavenger Hunt. I have created a simple scavenger hunt that kids of all ages can use to search and tally up what they find on a Halloween walk through the neighbourhood. Simple click on the link Halloween Scavenger Hunt and print off your very own.
Take the Halloween Scavenger Hunt out in the daylight or at night. The scavenger hunt works as a jumping off point to discuss Halloween and everything they are seeing.
