Fun Activities and Questions to ask them when they are coloring
1. There is a match word-to-picture activity sheet in the Happy Halloween Coloring Set. Just cut the names and have your child match the word to the 10 pictures. You can have a competition as to who finish the matching in the shortest time.
2. You can play this simple game by asking these questions.
Question : Which of these have no teeth?
- mask (That is why he wears the mask, because he has no teeth!).
Question: How many teeth does a cat have?
Answer: Just like a human who has 2 sets of teeth, cats do too. For children, they will have a primary set of teeth of 20, and by an adult, 32 teeth.
Kittens have 26 deciduous teeth, also known as primary, baby, or milk teeth. As adult cats, they will have 30 permanent teeth.
Fun facts about cats‘ teeth
1. Cats can develop periodontal diseases like human beings too.
2. If a cat chews on something hard, their teeth may break, and they might have to do root canal treatment like humans too.

How many teeth does a bat have?
One of the frequent character of Halloween is the bat.
So you can share fun facts about bats here, for example, bats are mammals like human beings.
They have belly buttons, can fly and catch prey using echolocation.
Vampire Bats have only 20 teeth while other small insect-eating bats can have as many as 38 teeth.
Bats that feed on hard-shelled insects have fewer but larger teeth with longer canines and more robust lower jaws than species that prey on softer bodied insects.
Children can be fascinated by bats as these creatures eat pests off crops and they fly in swarms.
During a family trip in Cambodia, we visited the bat caves and in the evening, the millions of bats exit the caves to hunt in packs.
The whole sky was fillied with black masses and that was an awesome sight to behold.
Share A Story About Witches
Next we have the witch. You can share a lovely story from the famous author Roald Dahl – “The Witches” (A favourite book in our house too!)
Excerpts from this funny book about how to spot a witch
- They always wear gloves
- They are bald so they will wear wigs
- They have large nose holes
- Their eyes change colour
- They have no toes (eek!)
