Hi! I’m Vicki from Babies to Bookworms! I love all things books and education, so I am thrilled to join 30 Days of Crafty Halloween and share a fun printable that will keep kids entertained while they are learning! The more we can bring learning to life for kids, the more that they will be interested, and the more likely they will become lifelong learners. I try to come up with lots of seasonal activities and crafts to get kids excited for learning. In honor of the Halloween season, I created this pumpkin puzzle coloring page. I still enjoy coloring now that I am an adult, so I love any opportunity to sit down with my daughter and color!
Make Learning Fun!
I believe that learning and reading should be fun for kids, and what’s more fun than Halloween? I’m really excited to get all of our Halloween books out this year. I was never a big fan of spooky things, but so far my daughter doesn’t seem to show any fears! I like to create activities that can be used by lots of different age and skill levels, so I created a version of the puzzle with vowels and consonants, as well as a blank version which you can adapt for your child’s skill level.
Customize to your child’s skill level!
Print out your free copy of the coloring pages below. Instruct kids using the completed puzzle to follow the key in the corner. Consonants should be colored in orange and vowels should be colored in yellow. For the blank version, create a puzzle that helps your kids with a skill they are currently working on. Fill the face of the jack o lantern with odd numbers, and the rest of the pumpkin with even numbers. You could also use lower and capital letters, math facts with the same solutions, or rhyming words.
There are so many symbols and traditions of Halloween that can make learning fun. If you’re looking for more creative Halloween themed learning activities, check out my posts on The Monster at the End of this Book, Pumpkin Town, and Halloween books to share as a family!
