BRIEF OUTLINE: Students make a set of two doors and trick or treat with their friends to collect the most candies. But which door holds the candy and which holds the monster!?





  1. Students cut out along the perforated line, then cut out the monster and the candy. DO NOT separate the 2 'doors'.
  2. Students will glue the candy and the monster to the back of the doors.
  3. When everyone has finished, students will make pairs and Student A will say: "Knock, knock, trick or treat. Left/Right Door".
  4. [They will choose 1 door]. Student B will 'open' the door and if it's the candy, they can say "Happy Halloween"!, if it's the mummy, they will say "Boo! [like a ghost]"
  5. Students count how many candies they can get and teachers can tally at the end who got the most candies. 



  • Ensure students have scissors and glue. Give students time limits for how long they have to prepare their "doors".
  • The students need at least 5-10 minutes of time to ask each other and have a great time with this activity.
