Halloween Apps and Websites for Kids – Fun, Educational, Free
Halloween is one of the most anticipated holidays of the year for my kids. The funny part is that they are not big candy eaters, but they love all the fun we have at this time year. Between dressing up, visiting with friends, parties and generally enjoying lots of excitement, it’s no wonder they love this time of year. To celebrate I’m gearing up for 31 days of Halloween STEM Activities and one of the things I discovered we were missing was technology! So I’ve researched some educational Halloween apps and sites my boys are going to love.
All of the apps are available on both IOS and Android (charges may apply, but they were free when I researched this article) and the websites free to use. I’ve put together a list with a little bit of everything. Some of the apps are just for fun, but most have some educational components. As is always the case at this time of year, there may be spooky things, zombies, ghosts, vampires, and who knows what else at this time of year. If you are concerned, always check the products before letting your child play.

Scratch is an amazing platform for learning coding and every year they have some great Halloween challenges and invite people to submit their Halloween inspired creations so everyone can learn from each other.
Have your kids discovered JibJab? My boys love making goofy video clips with this site to send to friends and family.
