When it comes to Halloween fun, a cryptogram can be the perfect activity. Not only is it a great way to get in the Halloween spirit, but it also provides a challenging mental workout. You must first decipher a series of coded messages to solve a cryptogram. Each message is encrypted using a simple substitution cypher, meaning that each letter has been replaced by another. The letter frequencies remain the same, so solving a cryptogram requires logical deduction and lateral thinking. With patience and perseverance, anyone can crack the code and enjoy a spooky holiday puzzle. So go ahead and download a printable cryptogram. You'll be glad you did! DOWNLOAD HERE

To make things more challenging, some of the words are backward. There are also bonus words that can be found by unscrambling the letters in the highlighted squares. The Halloween Word Search game is a great way to pass the time and enter the Halloween spirit. So turn off the lights, put on your favourite Halloween costume, and try to find all the hidden words.

This game is similar to Pictionary's classic game but has a Halloween twist. To begin, each player must choose a Halloween-themed word or phrase. Once everyone has chosen their word, the first player will draw a picture of their word on a piece of paper. The other players will have one minute to guess what the picture represents. If no one correctly guesses, the player can give additional clues or move on to the next drawing. The first player to guess correctly earns a point, and the first player to reach 10 points wins the game. DOWNLOAD HERE
Halloween Word Scrambles
One of our favourites is the Halloween Word Scramble. In this game, players must unscramble a series of Halloween-related words. The catch?
