Solve these fun Halloween riddles using the secret decoder wheel! This a great Halloween activity for kids! Free printables :)
If you’re looking for a quick Halloween activity for the kids, this Halloween decoder wheel is just the thing! Last year I created a Christmas decoder wheel for my kids and it was a big hit so this year I decided to create a Halloween one! There are four riddles to solve using the decoder wheel. You can split them up and give one riddle to each kiddo or keep them all together and challenge your child to solve all four!
This is such an easy activity to set up – which I love! After solving the riddles your kids can use the decoder wheel to write their own secret messages.
You’ll find the assembly instructions below as well as the free printable packet. I hope you enjoy this fun Halloween activity!
- Free printables – located at the end of this post
- Home printer or print at your favorite local printer
- Black brad
Download and print the free printable decoder wheel packet (located at the end of this post). Cut out each wheel.
Layer the two wheels, with the pumpkin one top. Poke a hole through the center of the wheels and use a black brad to connect them. The top wheel spins around so different letters match up to different images.
There are four Halloween riddles to solve. Each riddle has it’s own “KEY”. The key lets the solver know how to set the wheel. So for example, if the key is “H=Hat” the solver should spin the wheel until the letter H lines up with the image of a hat. Now they are ready to solve that riddle! An answer key is included in the packet :)
