Halloween Maths Activities

With Halloween less than a week away, we've rounded up some of our spooky maths activities for you to try at home or in the classroom.

I-Spy Halloween Counting Puzzle

Are you ready for some spooky counting fun? We've created a seasonal activity sheet for you, to keep the kids busy in the run up to Halloween. How many of each of the symbols can you find?

Geometric Bat

Here's a simple but fun geometric puzzle activity to set up for kids, either as a non spooky alternative to Halloween or for bat lovers all year round. Cut out shapes from black paper and challenge kids to create a bat out of them.

Spooky Counting Books

Counting books are a great way to engage kids with maths at any time of year. Here we've shared three of our favourite spooky counting books for kids (though don't worry if your little ones are easily scared, they're not too spooky).

If you'd like to share your Halloween maths activities with us, please tag us on Twitter or Facebook or use the hashtag #MathsWeekScot.
