One of my favorite Halloween memories growing up is going trick or treating with all of my neighbors.
I was really lucky to have such great neighbors, we were all so close when we were younger. So close that our parents even installed fences going through to each other’s yards so we could easily backyard hop!
Every Halloween, we would all dress up and go trick or treating around the neighborhood as a big group. One of my friends’ moms would always go ALL out. She would come trick or treating with us in full costume and makeup. It was always fun seeing what she would dress up as every year.
We would go around trick or treating until it got too late and then would often gather at one of our houses to see what candy we had got.
Halloween is always such a fun time of year for kids and people often celebrate Halloween in some form or another, all throughout the month of October.
Today, I wanted to share my free printable Halloween word search game that you can download and print at home. It would be great for holiday parties, classroom activities, or simply just a spooky themed rainy day activity.
