Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet for Preschool – 1st Grade Post Preview: Use this free printable packet for children to work on fine motor skills with a Halloween theme. Activities include tracing, cutting, coloring, and more.
Halloween will probably be different this year. We joked the other day that it would be a perfect year to be a doctor, a nurse, or maybe even a ninja. But hopefully everyone still gets to have some Halloween fun in whatever form it may come in for you and your family.
I have a new 15-page packet full of fine motor skill practice activities for kids. It includes tracing, coloring, drawing, and more. (You might remember the Back to School fine motor skills packet and 4th of July fine motor skills packet from this summer.)
And bonus – the printable Halloween fine motor skills packet has an option to be able to get it for free!
Note: The Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet download is available much farther down in the post, so be sure to scroll all the way down to get it.

Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet for Preschool – 1st Grade
This printable Halloween-themed packet for kids is a fun way to work on a variety of fine motor skills. The 15-page packet has cute pictures for kids to color in addition to several types of other fine motor skills.
Each page of the packet has directions for what to do on that page.
What’s included in the Halloween Fine Motor Skills Printable?
Ghost Sizes Activity
Students will color the three ghosts on the page. They can then trace the lines around the ghosts, cut them out, and then place them in order by size on another piece of paper.
If you prefer, you can also attach the ghosts that have been cut out onto craft sticks and make ghost stick puppets. (This suggestion is not on the printed page.)
Halloween-themed Cut and Glue Patterns Page
Children will figure out what comes next in a set of simple patterns. Kids can then cut out the correct answer from the bottom of the page and glue it in the next spot. This page includes three different patterns. The graphics are jack-o-lanterns, cats, and spiders.
Students can also color the pictures on this pattern page if they would like to do so.
If your children or students like this type of activity, they might also enjoy the free Cut and Paste Fall Patterns Packet as well.
Color and Cut Page
This page features five Halloween-themed pictures that children can color. After they color them, there is a dotted line for cutting out each picture. These pictures could be glued onto another paper or made into stick puppets by using craft sticks.
Pictures included: candy bag, spider, spider web, jack-o-lantern, haunted house
Pumpkin Coloring Halloween card Page
This page features two pumpkins to color with a note above them that says, “Have a Happy Halloween!” There is a dotted line around this all for children to work on cutting skills by cutting on the lines after coloring.
There are directions to give the picture to someone you love.
Halloween-themed Line Tracing (4 pages)
There are four tracing pages in this packet. Each page has Halloween-themed pictures and a variety of types of lines for students to trace. If desired, children can color the pages as well.
If you want to be able to use these pages over and over again, you can color and laminate them before using them. Students would then trace the lines with a dry erase marker.
Cat Counting Practice Pages (10 pages)
There is a page for each number between 1 and 10. Each page has the following features:
- A handwriting area for tracing a line of numbers that corresponds to that page
- A haunted house with the appropriate number of cats showing in the windows. For example, on the page for the number five, there are five cats in the windows.
- Ten cat faces with directions to color the same number of cats as you see in the windows of the house.
Appropriate Ages for the Fine Motor Skills Packet
While I have specifically mentioned preschool, kindergarten, and first grade as the grade levels for the Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet, that is not really the only group of students that this is appropriate for. It’s just the range that will have the largest number of students that it will work for.
You may find that some of the activities in this packet may be appropriate for your older toddler. I would never force a toddler to sit and work on a printable activity, but they might like using crayons or markers on some of the pictures.
If you have an older student who would benefit from fine motor skill practice because of delays or disabilities, this packet may also be perfect for them. Of course, you know your child or student best and if this activity will seem like too much of a “little kid” activity to them, then I would recommend that you find other more age-appropriate activities to use.
Halloween Extension Activities and Fun
You can keep scrolling to get to the Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet if you’d like. However, if you’d like some ideas for other school-themed activities, you might like some of these!
Turn eating Halloween candy into a math lesson! This Halloween candy math printable set has lots of different math activities to do with your candy.
For kids on the older end of the suggested ages for the Halloween Fine Motor Skills Packet, this set of five printable Easy Halloween Word Search Puzzles might be a fun Halloween-themed activity.
This Halloween I Spy Printable, from PJs and Paint, can be a fun Halloween-themed printable activity for kids.
It might be because I grew up in the 1980s, but self-inking stamps fill me with some childhood level joy. This set of Halloween self-inking stamps would be so much fun to get for some Halloween-themed fun and some fine motor skills too!
As long as I’m feeling nostalgic, I’ll also suggest these Halloween slap bracelets.
