It is always fun to find free Halloween party games. I was a Teacher before I started blogging full time. I was always looking for holiday activities I could use in my classroom as well that didn’t cost me anything and I knew the kids would enjoy them.

  • Even if you have older children or students everyone always loves a word search. If they are older you can make it a game or a contest to see who can find all the words first and they get a prize!

Of course they can use a pencil or pen and draw a line thru the words they find but using colored highlighters makes it a bit more fun.

Then you can reuse them year after year. If you’re looking for MORE free Halloween printables and activities we have a few others like:

We hope you have a fun and safe holiday and enjoy the games we’ve created too. Let us know what you think and how you used these free printables too!

I receieved the word search, but when I go to print it out, it doesn't fit on an 81/2 x 11 paper. How do I change this?

That must be a setting on your printer. Make sure it is set to "fit on page"
