    I love the ideas! I do Halloween stations as well but will be adding a few of yours. One that my students ask for is a Haunted House – I set mats up on their end to make a tunnel and drape a parachute over top. I tie toy bats to a long post and set that on the mats too so it looks like the bats are hanging from the ceiling inside. I also decorate inside with a cauldron, spiders, a fake moving hand, and any other fun Halloween decorations I have around. Students go through the house one at a time on scooters. K-2 love it!
