Ten Timid Ghosts by Jennifer O’Connell is a not so scary Halloween Counting Book for Preschoolers and Kinder children. Counting backwards from 10 after a witch moves into their Haunted House the witch tries to remove them by filling the house with Halloween Characters. However, there is one clever ghost that figures it out and the 10 shy ghosts become brave and get their house back. We love the rhyme and repetition in this book as well as well as the illustrations and counting makes this a great addition to your Halloween Book Box.

Ghosts and Ten Timid Ghost Activities for Preschoolers

We have picked 5 easy activities based on this theme. Pick the one that appeals to you the most, try a few or if you are looking for more structure for your days then check out our weekly suggested schedule and plan to try all 5.

Ghost Sensory Play for the book Ten Timid Ghosts

For this week’s sensory play we are getting a little messy making Ice Ghosts.

Although the activity suggests doing this in a bathroom we recommend a plastic tub or similar. If you want to simplify it further then just make the ghosts without the paint with just googly eyes and have fun exploring the cold, and melting of these disappearing not so scary Halloween creatures.

Alphabet Activity for Ghost Week

We’re back to practising names this week for our alphabet and letter activity and with this Flying Ghost Name Game, your little one can get moving as well.

Math Activity for the Theme of Ghosts

We love this Haunted House Math Activity.

From using it with a toddler (scroll to the bottom of the post) to with older kids that are working on addition and subtraction it’s a fun ghost math that everyone can use this week. Don’t worry if you aren’t feeling particularly creative check out this Haunted House Template that we found.

Ghost Themed Cooking Activity

This really simple snack is ideal to make this week – Boonananas!

They are healthy and your preschoolers can make them too!

Ghost Art Activity for Ten Timid Ghosts

For the art activity, we are making our own ghosts using a straw!

Why not make 10 and number them to create your own Ten Timid Ghosts and help your preschoolers with number recognition as well this week.
