Hands on Halloween - Letter Recognition and Math Activity

Halloween is upon us and I have one last Hands on Halloween post for the season.

Mason is working hard on his letter recognition and most of the time I have to trick him into practicing. :)  He loves using Bingo daubers and so I came up with these letter recognition dauber activities that he LOVED!


Concentration face :)  He daubed the G's on the ghost page and the P's on the pumpkin page.


Sister wanted a page of her own and I was happy to oblige!



 This would be fun in lots of different ways... a big piece of butcher paper on the floor that you could write letters on, daubing a particular letter in words, etc.  So fun!

Next up is Spooky Math...

I made this little Haunted House graphic and put numbers in the windows.  Then I printed out little ghosts and put math problems on them for Luke and dots for Mason that corresponded with the numbers in the windows.






No surprise that Luke told me his math problems were too easy. 



Mason had to count the dots on his ghosts and match them up with the numbers...


... so proud!!! :)

If you're looking for another quick and easy activity this weekend, be sure to check these out (click on the picture to go to the post).






And if you're in charge of a snack for school tomorrow or a party this weekend, here are a few of my favorites from past parties and such. 

These are just apple slices with peanut butter and mini marshmallows...


... and this snack mix is always a hit.  Candy corn, Reeses Pieces, jelly orange slices, Whoppers, Cheez-Its, marshmallows and pretzels. 


And then the easiest Halloween snack ever - popcorn ghosts!


I hope y'all found something fun to make and that you have a FANTASTIC day! We're excited about PJ day tomorrow at school and a festive weekend!
