27 Easy Halloween Writing Prompts (Free!)

Halloween Writing Prompts for Kids and Students + 128 MORE Halloween Writing Ideas— Teachers, Homeschoolers, Parents, and Writing Enthusiasts, you are invited to make your kid’s Halloween extra-spooktacular this year with this fabulous list of Halloween writing prompts.

Halloween Themed Writing Topics for Kids

Above all, please use these Halloween writing ideas any way you see fit to get your kids writing.

Now, perhaps you’ll use them as story starters or as journal writing prompts with your students or for a special holiday project. Oh yeah.

You see…

Each writing prompt listed below may be used for solo writing or for a group Halloween writing project with kids. This list of prompts is especially useful for students in 1st through 3rd grade although they are great for older students, too, given their fun, easy, and creative tone.

Additionally, you could add some excitement to the writing project by having students incorporate their costume ideas into their holiday writing. Spiders, goblins, clowns, or ghosts…they all sound inspiring and spooky!

If working with groups, have the kids share their stories with the class when done. Your students may even want to compile a class Halloween Storybook that could be shared with their parents.

Ok, without further ado, here are those fun Halloween-themed journal starters for young writers (and Halloween writing fans of all ages)!
