100+ Spooktacular Halloween Ideas for Kids…A Halloween Round-up from Bloggers Around the World!

“We should not only use the brains we have but all that we can borrow.  ~Woodrow Wilson

Remember yesterday when I asked you to stay tuned for some upcoming Halloween ideas? Well, they’re here. I hope you’re ready to have your mind’s blown. Seriously. You’ll have enough to do for the next 5 Halloweens! At least.

You see, I have some other kid-blogger friends out there in the world. They are super awesome and ALWAYS willing to share ideas. Running a blog like this is not a one woman show…no siree. I need help and I need it often. When I asked my kid-blogger friends to contribute to a Halloween Round-Up, they came in droves. And they came armed with some pretty cool stuff.

Here is a hint to make this round-up easier to navigate: If you click the blog name, it will take you to their homepage. If you click the title of their post, it will open a new window and take you to the specific activity. If you click a photograph, it will take you to the activity but will not open a new window in your browser…you will have to use your back button to return to the Round-Up.

So without further ado, let’s get started…

First, I want to introduce you to who I think is a creepy Halloween activity genius. Ok, the woman is actually kid-activity genius, but her Halloween stuff is especially fun. Growing a Jeweled Rose is a blog filled with bright, fun, and often deliciously messy activities. Here are a few of her Halloween posts…You can also find these post on her blog… Halloween Egg Dying, Glowing Witch’s Brew, Spooktacular Ice Play, Glowing Pumpkin Jars, and a Scented Pumpkin Bath!
