Halloween is a especially fun time of year here at the Hughes household. It’s a great time to make Halloween crafts and try fun Halloween activities.

There’s always pumpkin carving involved, and I love this tradition! My husband has been carving pumpkins with Lucia since she was a little girl. And now Izzy, our youngest, will get to enjoy this fun activity too!

And when Izzy’s a little bit older, I’ll have her try these hands-on Halloween number matching mystery puzzles too!

Lucia’s tried them and loves them, but I’m in the process of creating more challenging math puzzles for her. I’ll make sure to share them with you once I’m done 😉!

Overall, these Halloween mystery puzzles are engaging math activities for helping children work on their number sense in a fun way during the Halloween season.
