Halloween Vocabulary & Halloween Bingo

I know that Halloween is not a traditional Chinese holiday, but it's a plethora of vocabulary that kids will enjoy learning.  And, because stores start advertising Halloween in September, they'll have lots of opportunities to practice the vocabulary!  So, if your planning on introducing this topic, here's some flashcards and a Bingo game to get you started.

*Note- Consider cutting out the flashcards and posting them around your house, pocketing them when going for a walk, and even keeping a set in your car.  This way if you see a Halloween decoration or costume, you'll be able to talk about it using your new vocabulary!  Also, I've created 6 Bingo boards below.  If you need more, have Learners cut out their own flashcards and tape them to a blank sheet to create an infinite number of boards.

Flashcards- traditional characters with 注音符
Flashcards- simplified characters with 漢語拼音 (Hànyǔ Pīnyīn)
Bingo- traditional characters with 注音符
Bingo- simplified characters with 漢語拼音 (Hànyǔ Pīnyīn)
Bingo- no characters


  1. Hi panda-mom! I just recently started a blog about speaking Chinese at home with my kids. I wanted to link to this Halloween post, but not really sure what the correct etiquette is. Would it be okay for me to link to this post? In general, do people ask before linking? You have so much content here, I feel like I could be linking here a lot! :)


    1. Hi MommySpeaksChinese. I would love it if you shared the links here with others. Please, just make sure that you let your audience know where you found the content, particularly the activities that were made by me such as this. 謝謝!
