With the first of October already here, it’s now perfectly acceptable to break out your beloved pumpkin bulletin board decorations and start planning your Halloween classroom festivities. We’ve rounded up five fun crafts and educational activities (featuring a few of our favorite supplies, of course!) that fit the bill for your classroom celebration: super cute, low-budget, and easy to make.


Once you’ve decided on your crafts and treats, use TeacherLists to create your free online wish list — it’s a quick and easy way to ask parents for help.  Simply click to add items to your list, then, when you’re done, share your list with parents via email, your social networks, even your school or classroom website.  Parents can pledge to donate items right online (TeacherLists even tracks who is bringing what – you’ll get an email letting you know who has pledged to donate which items, and how many.) Your list even updates automatically so you don’t get too many of one item and not enough of another!
