When Is Halloween 2022?

We know teachers have a lot on their plate, so just a reminder: Halloween is celebrated on October 31 in 2022 (and every year). This year, Halloween will be celebrated on a Monday, so Tuesday may bring tired students and a whole lot of candy into your classroom!
Maybe it's your first Halloween as a teacher, or you're looking for some new ways to celebrate at school! From carving pumpkins with our students to handing out treats to costumed kiddos, our teacher team has pulled out all the stops for this holiday over the years. Here are a few tips from their years in the classroom to try with your class!
Try some of the best fun Halloween activities to celebrate in the classroom with these not-so-scary ideas for teachers:
  • Make Halloween slime (it's green) in your science classes to explore chemical reactions and the relationship between liquids and solids
  • Make Halloween Page Biter bookmarks in the school library to keep the pages of books safe!
  • Print Halloween bookmarks to hand out to trick or treaters in your school
