This fun and spooky wordsearch puzzle, designed for children, is full of the sounds of halloween they will love – ghosts calling, witches cackling, owl hooting, foxes crying in the night.
Look out for the things that move in the night – the cat with coloured eyes, lights in the castle. And when children find a word, it sets off the thunder and lightning!
The activity, and the effects are designed for children aged 5 to 8 years old and will help with early word skills. It can be changed for different levels of ability:
- the grid can be 6×6, 8×8 or 10×10 squares
- it can allow diagonal words or reverse words (down to up, or right to left)
The app can also be changed:
- to turn the lighning on or off
- and the sounds can all be turned off
These can be done using the Options menu.
It would be ideal for a fun activity at home, or as a “wet break” activity in school.
