How To Make a Halloween Book For Kids

Halloween is so much fun! This is especially true when the kids are young and they get so excited about picking out the pumpkins they want to carve and deciding "who they want to be". Halloween can also be part of a fun learning experience!

I made this book when my first two kids were toddlers and "The Wheels On The Bus" was one of our favorite pre-school songs. Just in case you don't remember the melody click here. This is the first verse:)

"The Wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round.

The Wheels on the bus go round and round, all through the town! "

Are you ready to sing our Halloween counting song? Here we go...

Great song! We used to make the approach to our front door pretty scary for little trick or treaters, until we realized that they were avoiding our house altogether!

Now we're friendlier!

Thanks, randomcreative. I had lots of fun making books when the kids were little:) You are very talented and I'll bet you make beautiful books.

Oh, Will! scaring the trick or treaters! my daughter once sat under a cardboard "table" with just her head sticking out of a hole in the middle. Then she would talk to the kids and they would scream like crazy! We also became much friendlier after that! Thanks for stopping by:)

This is a great book. Kids will really love these. I wish I could write books for kids too. I have been teaching kids for almost thirty years and maybe it's time I will write a book for them. Thanks pedrn44 for sharing this lovely creation. voted up.
