How to make your crossword puzzle reusable:

If you are planning on using this Halloween crossword puzzle at a yearly holiday party or classroom activity, you may wish to reuse the games year after year. If so, I would highly recommend using a home lamination machine.

This is the home lamination machine I have and I absolutely love it! I look for any excuse I can to laminate something. All you need to do is run the crossword puzzle through the laminator and then use dry erase markers to fill in the answers to the puzzle. Simply wipe off the answers when you are done and use again next October!

If you don’t have access to a home lamination machine, you can also use these really cool dry erase pockets. All you have to do is print out the crossword puzzle, slip the page inside the pocket and use dry erase markers to fill in the puzzle.

I think kids would enjoy pretending it is Halloween and working on this Halloween puzzle. This is a great way to use your imagination and let it be Halloween and give them Halloween things to do. It is kinda like a bonus holiday when you are stuck in the house.
