Have some spooky educational fun with these Halloween worksheets for preschool aged children. These printables could also work for the younger kindergarten ages or even those a little older than preschool. I would recommend these for children generally around the ages of 4-7. However, the colouring aspect also makes it fun for any kids who just love to colour. The I Spy worksheet is a good one for those that are a little older.
If you love free printables (and I'm guessing that since you're here, then you do!), you might also like to check out my blog post with my top 5 favourite Halloween printables.

Fun ways to use your free printable Halloween worksheets
Whether you're a teacher looking for a fun resource for your class; a homeschool parent; or simply looking for a way to keep your own kiddos entertained this Halloween… these printables will work for you.
Aside from the classroom, these pages are perfect for a family gathering and keeping the kids busy. The I Spy worksheet alone is a great party activity or good to use as a placemat at Halloween dinner. If you're having a Halloween-themed Birthday party, pop one (or all of these) into your party favor bags.
The designs include some spooky cute characters and elements such as pumpkins, ghosts, bats, cauldrons, witch's hats and more. Easy and cost-effective to print in black ink. Once the kids have completed the worksheets, they can then colour them.
Whilst I mentioned these are great Halloween worksheets for preschool, kindergarten or even older children, you are the best judge. You know your children best. Based on your child's skill level, determine if these will be too challenging (or not challenging enough!). My 10-year-old still really loves I Spy worksheets so I'll keep giving them to him as long as he enjoys it. Even if it's not challenging enough for him, I like that it's a holiday activity promoting creativity and keeping him away from the screens!
Halloween worksheets for Preschool or Kindergarten ages
Halloween Pencil Control Worksheet
Using pencil control worksheets is a great way to help preschoolers and young children develop their fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and pencil control. I like to use pencils, crayons, markers, or coloured pencils in various colours. Given these are Halloween worksheets, using Halloween colours would be good fun!
When using the pencil control sheets, show your child how to hold the pencil correctly using a comfortable grip and demonstrate how to start at the designated starting point. If they are new to pencil control exercises, begin with the simpler dashed lines.
Offer guidance but also encourage independence by having them take their time to stay on the lines. And of course, they always love lots of praise and words of positivity. Then either at the end of the worksheet or as your child finishes each dotted line, they can colour the spooky characters and elements.
Halloween Word Match
The Halloween word match worksheet is a fun and educational activity that helps children improve their vocabulary, word recognition, and reading skills. Again, I like to use different colours for more creativity and to make it more engaging for them.
This particular activity will be more challenging for those who are still learning words and younger children will need some assistance. You can always help them by encouraging them to sound out or identify the starting letter/sound and go from there.
The aim of this activity is for the child to match the words to the correct images by drawing lines to connect to the corresponding words and pictures. If they aren't too sure how to do this, show them by starting with an example.
Offer assistance if your child is unsure about matching a particular word to its corresponding image. Provide hints, sound out the word together, or discuss the characteristics of the image. You can also use this time to discuss the meanings of the matches, their pronunciation, and any related details or personal stories.
You can also go that step further by encouraging your child to use the matched words in sentences, create a short story or draw their own Halloween pictures with the elements.
I Spy Search + Find Worksheet
I Spy search and find worksheets enhance observation skills, attention to detail, and vocabulary. They are also my favourite of this download bundle!
Now your free printable Halloween worksheets for preschool kids absolutely become suitable for a larger range of ages. Some younger children may find the colouring too intricate so keep that in mind, as that may frustrate some kiddos.
Of course, you need to start by gathering pencils, crayons, markers, or coloured pencils. The objective of this activity is to find and circle or colour the items listed on the base of the worksheet. Using the circling method will help younger children or those who aren't very interested in colouring. Whilst you're completing the worksheet, talk about the items found and any interesting observations.
Within the key at the base of the page, each Halloween element has a box next to it so that you can also turn this into a counting exercise. Once your child has found all of the characters and shapes, they can count them up and write them in these boxes.
