Halloween shape crafts

Sharing is caring!

8 Halloween shape crafts that will encourage preschoolers and kindergartners to learn or review shapes around the Halloween.

Halloween shape crafts for kids: witch, Frankenstein, black cat, pumpkin, Jack-O-Lantern, bat and vampire

These crafts will help kids work on their fine motor skills while cutting and gluing the paper craft templates.

They will also help develop math skills, like:

  • shape recognition. Kids will get to work with several shapes: circle, oval, square, rectangle, hexagon, triangle, trapezoid, rhombus and star.
  • patterns. Several of these crafts are based on the same 6 shapes.
  • matching. There is a pumpkin shape matching activity where kids have to match the shape with its name
  • numbers. One of the shape Frankenstein crafts comes with a shape graph and kids need to count each shape and register the numbers

How can you help?

Here are a few ideas on how you can use these Halloween math crafts:

  • Count and sort. Kids can count all the shapes they use for a particular craft. They can also sort them by color or size. Ask them to point which shapes are bigger and which are smaller.
  • Shape naming. Name or ask kids to name all the shapes they use to create the crafts.
  • Shape drawing. Kids can draw a replica of the craft to practice making all the shapes themselves.

We love shape crafts and have created quite a few of them, for different seasons and holidays. From this shape Santa to this shape turkey craft.

I wanted to group all Halloween shape crafts in one place to make it easier to everyone to browse them.
