Halloween Classroom Activities – Witch’s Brew & Halloween BINGO

Two Classroom Festivities that I’ve done before that were hits!  I have not and do not dare try this is middle school (7th grade and up).  I think that my daughter would be mortified.  No, I KNOW she would be.  But I can say that up until 6th grade, all the kids loved the brew and bingo!

Halloween BINGO: Play a few rounds of Halloween BINGO with prizes for the lucky winners!  The favorite prizes were not candy; the kids like sticky, oozing, gooey goop, slime and other things like that.  (Eww)  In lieu of numbers, I made bingo cards with pictures of witches, pumpkins, ghosts, candy corn, etc.  I printed out the pictures to use in the classroom to call from and printed out the bingo sheets for the kids to play on.  We use candy corn as markers. Pour the candy corn in little cups OR before arriving at school, place one bingo card and some candy corn in a Halloween decorated plastic ziploc, so it’s easier to hand out and takes less time to start the game.  Buy at least three bags of candy corn, because most of the candy corn is eaten! Yummy

Witches Brew: Sent a letter to all of the parents through the teacher.  Ask one parent to arrive to the classroom dressed as a friendly witch, who will help the class make the special Witches Brew.  Each child is asked to bring an ingredient for the brew to the party.  With the witch’s help, they add their ingredient into the cauldron one by one and as the witch stirs the cauldron, they all help make the Witches Brew.   A little cooperation + taking turns = Halloween fun!!  Also ask for additional items, like plastic baggies because after they snack, there will be leftovers to be brought home.  See below.

Sample letter:
