Halloween must be one of the exciting event for kids. They get to do trick or treat, which means wearing cool costume and plenty of free sweets. But how about some learning activity for kids to welcoming the excitement of Halloween. Here, I share a Halloween Coloring Printable for kids and you are free to download the free printable.
I drew some Halloween related elements, like carved pumpkins, black bats, witch with her broom, and a big moon. I drew it by using different sizes of drawing pens. Your kids can have fun with Halloween colors which usually are orange, purple, black and white. But of course, kids can always be experimental with colors to dig more of their creativity.
History Of Jack O’ Lantern, Halloween Witch and Bats
A glance of history on how carved pumpkin (Jack o’ lantern) become a star on Halloween celebration; some believed was came from Irish folklore about a sinner named Stingy Jack who won a deal with Satan. The deal was the Satan not to take his soul. But since Jack unable to rest in Heaven, he started to wandering on earth in dark carrying a carved lantern turnip to light his way. From there, the turnip was replaced by pumpkin and then became best known as Jack o’ lantern.
What about a witch to Halloween? It was commonly known from Irish legend too, Hallow E’en as they call it in Ireland, means All Hallows Eve. Witches arrived with their brooms to gather in at this particular night; now known as Halloween night, October 31st. From there, witchi is one of the important elements of Halloween.
For bats on Halloween; originated from Celts’s celebration of harvest festival, called Samhain, or now has evolved into Halloween. On Halloween night, they lit bonfires, which attracted many insects and also attracted bats. From then on, the bats are closely related to Halloween.
