Free printable Halloween coloring pages and worksheets for kids are one way to teach the children and keep them occupied, all while maintaining the holiday theme. As the holiday approaches, children get excited with the parties, the costumes and of course, with trick-or-treating. Thematic coloring pages help harness this energy while thematic worksheets can reinforce skills that have been taught, or help to teach new ones.

Teachers and parents can put together packets of coloring pages and worksheets for children.

It is much more fun to wait when you have something interesting to do.
