Let your kids have endless fun with these Halloween surprise cards, a cool Halloween printable template that makes a great gift or it can even be used as a fun memory game for kids to play.
We love sharing these types of cards, they really bring out the smiles on kids’ faces as they open them up. When it comes to Halloween crafts, the Jack-o-lanterns are perfect for hiding away all kinds of different Halloween monsters.
These make great classroom gifts or party favors. They are also a great Halloween classroom activity as they come both in black and white for kids to color as well as a set of precolored Halloween surprise cards.
We really do love these types of cards, we already shared a similar smaller set of surprise Halloween pumpkin cards a while ago, but the expansion of the characters was certainly due. We also have the coolest dinosaur surprise cards.
But let’s get back to our spooky monsters. There is a whole bunch of them in this printable template set… We’ve got a witch.
And we have a ghost…
…as well as a zombie showing off his brains…
A silly bat also awaits…
…as is the mummy (which is available as a free printable)
And there are many, many more!
How to Make the Halloween Surprise Cards
What you need:
- our printable template
- coloring supplies
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the template, either the whole set or the free printable Halloween surprise mummy card that you can get if you join our newsletter.
You can print them on regular print paper, which is a great option for larger groups as heavier print paper can be a bit more expensive.
However, these cards, especially the black and white ones work best if printed on heavier print paper.
If you will be making a memory card game out of these, print each card twice.
If you opted for the black and white version, it’s best to color the cards before cutting them out as this makes the coloring easier.
Once colored in, cut along the outer outline.
Fold along the dashed line at the top.
Now align the top fashed line with the bottom one.
Run your hands across the card to make the folds nice and crisp.
All done! These Halloween surprise cards really area easy peasy to make.
Now your kids can open and close them to see what kind of Halloween monster hides inside.
Oh so much fun and so many different cards!
