Halloween-Themed Counseling Activities

I love to incorporate seasonal themes into the lessons I’m teaching just to get a little extra buy-in. Kids are always here for a seasonal mummy challenge, and it’s a huge plus when they learn a little something about not judging people by their outward appearances. For more holiday fun, check out these Halloween counseling activities that your students will love!

Halloween Counseling Activities

1 – Say Boo to Bullying

In this lesson, students brainstorm all of the ways they can show kindness and say “boo” to bullying. We play balloon volleyball, naming kind acts each time the balloon is tapped and wrap up the lesson by making “ghost grams” for each other. These are great for spreading kindness during bullying prevention month.

2 – Unwrap Assumptions

It’s pretty hard to tell what’s under a mummy with all that wrap… and the same goes for assumptions! It’s hard to get to know people if we can’t look past our own assumptions about them. In this lesson, students share assumptions people have made about them and then teach others about the real them!

3 – Candy Corn Feelings

These matching activities are always fun for small groups! Students read a statement and try to determine the emotion that best matches the speaker’s feelings. Then, they find the face that shows the emotion.

4 – What’s on the Inside?

Sometimes we all wear costumes. Sometimes those costumes are clothes we use to send a message or a smile we paint on our faces. In this lesson, students are encouraged to let go of the costume and share more about themselves with their peers (and also look past costumes and get to know each other!).

5 – Color by Coping Skills

I love having these color by coping skills pages on hand for classroom lesson early finishers, small groups, and individuals! They’re just like color by number activities that are familiar to students, but instead, students are talking more about coping skills. These open up discussions about coping skills students can try in various situations.

6 – Halloween Safety

It’s always a good time for a review of personal safety! Talk about safe practices for trick-or-treating and review some scenarios for students to evaluate.
