"Is Halloween cancelled?"

That's probably the question on every kid's mind right now. It's just not safe to run around the neighborhood grabbing treats out of shared bowls. So how can you show your kids a good time while keeping everybody safe?

Read on for some fun Halloween activities that will keep your kids excited about the season.

Join a Costume Parade

If your kids love dressing up, why not create or join a costume parade? All the kids can dress up and march (socially distanced) down the street, through a park, or around a parking lot to display costumes. It'll give kids a way to show off, and also get out of the house!

Halloween Zoom Party

Even if you're not meeting in person, hop online to show off everybody's costumes! Friends, coworkers, or grandparents will enjoy seeing your family's fabulous outfits.

Neighborhood Pumpkin Carving Contest

Invite everyone in the neighborhood to decorate and set out pumpkins for a jack-o-lantern contest. Participants can vote for winners online, or just walk up and down the street to admire everybody's work.

Decorate Masks

Since the face mask is this year's new fashion statement, why not make it part of the costume? Try creating a mask that matches your outfit, or decorate a fun Halloween mask to wear on its own.

If you don't sew, don't worry. The CDC has instructions for making a quick and easy mask with a piece of cloth and two rubber bands. Let the kids choose fabric and decorate it with fabric pens to make their own Halloween statements.

(Note: A costume mask won't protect kids from germs, so the CDC recommends making a cloth mask a part of your costume. Don't let kids wear a costume mask and a fabric mask at the same time, as it can make it hard to breathe.)

Make Creative Costumes From Household Items

Since your kids don't have to impress anybody, make this the year to get creative. What do you have lying around the house that someone can turn into a really fabulous costume? Scarves, hats, old coats, letter jackets, cast-off skirts, oversized shirts, and bath-towel capes can turn your kid into a superhero, a movie actor, a monster, or something you've never imagined.

Mad Scientist Candy Lab

Create a laboratory for destroying candy and learning science lessons. Try candy experiments like throwing Warheads into baking soda water to make it bubble, stretching out taffy like ectoplasm, or creating slime by microwaving gummy worms and letting them cool. You can melt, sink, crush, break, soak, and stir--who knows what the kids will discover!

Choose Your Favorite Treats

If you're not buying 10-pound bags of candy and handing out pieces to every kid in town, why not let your kids choose this year's treats? This is the year for gourmet chocolate, sour bombs, exotic fruits, or whatever your family really wants. Buying the candy yourself instead of sending kids around the neighborhood also helps you limit the amount of sugar your kids get for Halloween.

Trick-or-Treat Candy Hunt

If you don't go out trick-or-treating, make the hunt happen at home instead. Hide candy or prizes in Easter eggs, and add glow sticks to make them glow in the dark!

You can also create a scavenger hunt or a treasure map to get kids searching all around the house.

Old-Fashioned Halloween Treats

Try celebrating Halloween the way your great-grandparents did by making the treats yourselves. Kids can mix and shape Jell-O popcorn balls without having to boil sugar, and pulling taffy will get kids involved and teach them about candy chemistry at the same time.

Keep Halloween Fun

Don't let the current craziness keep you from enjoying Halloween. If you get creative and plan out some new Halloween activities, you can celebrate Halloween 2020-style and keep the day fun for everyone.

Fwd: 7500+ Free Printables for Kids Are a LOT of Fun!


7500+ Free Printables for Kids Are a LOT of Fun!
 
Woo! Jr. Kids Activities
Hi Jody,

Did you know that Woo! Jr. Kids Activities has been around since 2008, and has over 7500 FREE printables on the website? In addition, there are nearly 3 million pins on Pinterest by parents and teachers saving our content. Today, we wanted to show you some of the most popular resources on our website so that you can bookmark them for future use! And did we mention that they are FREE

While you're bookmarking, please follow us on Facebook and Pinterest, too!
By far the most popular content on our site is our printable alphabet letters, alphabet coloring pages, and alphabet worksheets. Our full 26 letter full page alphabets are extremely versatile; people use them to make banners, decorate bulletin boards, or use them as craft templates. 
From Pokemon, to Charlie Brown, to every holiday you can imagine, we have kids' coloring pages for every day of the year! We also have mandala coloring pages, animal coloring pages, a set for boys and a set for girls. In fact, there are just too many to mention! 
Our printable mad libs and original kids poems are a big hit with teachers and homeschooling parents. We also have a whole section of lesson plans with supporting worksheets. And we've got you covered for math, science and history, too!
Some of our personal favorite fun activities on the site are our printable crafts. We have tons of masks, paper toys, and on Halloween our pumpkin carving patterns are so popular we have to add server capacity in October!

Back to School With the Internet Archive
Useful Tools for Back to School

As students around the world resume their education, millions of learners are facing uncertainty about school schedules, class formats, and online study. As a nonprofit dedicated to Universal Access to All Knowledge, the Internet Archive provides a number of free resources for parents, students, teachers, and librarians around the world—check out these tools for remote learning!
For Parents
Do you have a budding history buff, wildlife biologist, artist, or stargazer on your hands? Looking for books to entertain and educate them with? We've created a number of handy resource guides on a range of subjects, from astronauts to zebras. You can also check out some previous compilations of our favorite collections!

Of course, one of the best ways to support your child's education is by reading to and with them. The Internet Archive's Open Library contains thousands of children's books to check out and enjoy together.
FIND RESOURCES
For Students
If you need homework help, The Internet Archive has a huge array of textbooks and study guides. If you're looking for primary sources to cite in your History assignments, our 26 million historical books and texts are a great place to start; if you're trying to get through English class we also have thousands of works of literature from around the world.

And if you need a study break? We have a huge collection of educational software and computer games you can play around with. (Not to mention plenty of less-educational games, too!)
STUDY UP
For Teachers and Educators
Over the past several months, the Internet Archive has collaborated with a number of educational specialists to determine how our collections can best serve teachers. If you're trying to plan for an online semester, are wondering how to increase your students' digital fluency, or want to prepare for long-term distance learning trends, you can find expert analysis and advice on our blog. And if you want to leverage the Open Library to get new material or find lesson plans to make curriculum preparation easier, our doors are always open.
DISCOVER TOOLS
For Librarians
As a nonprofit public library, we know that now more than ever, libraries and librarians matter. While digital librarians are facing unprecedented situations—and formerly analog librarians are being forced to adapt—we're providing useful resources to library and archive professionals everywhere. You can learn more about how we can enhance course reserves on our blog, or browse our American Libraries archive to explore some of our partners' collections. We proudly sponsor both Archive-It (an institutional web archiving solution) and the Open Libraries program (which allows libraries to expand their digital holdings using our collections). If you'd like to learn more about how the Internet Archive can help you provide more digital materials to your patrons, sign up for an upcoming webinar!
LEARN MORE
In these tumultuous times, we want to make sure that students have the tools they need to learn—and we couldn't offer the resources we do without the help of our partners, donors, and supporters everywhere. Whether you're looking for homework help, teaching via videoconference, or finding new ways to support your patrons, we hope that our collections prove useful to you.

Stay safe and healthy, and thanks for using the archive!
