Halloween is approaching and I don’t know about you, but I am loving coming up with my session plans this month.
If you’ve read my blog posts in the past, you know I love a good themed session plan.
Halloween is especially fun because there are so many interesting characters to incorporate (witches, ghosts, and goblins), themes to create songs about (costumes, trick-or-treating, and pumpkins) and so many ways you can address sensory needs (using cobwebs, glow in the dark lanterns, and my favorite – those cinnamon scented broom sticks!)
If you’re in need of some new Halloween intervention ideas for your sessions with kids and teens, check out the following posts:
“Cause This is Thriller!” Halloween Session Ideas for Teens: Here you’ll learn about a musical song/story using the book “Inside a House That is Haunted” and a movement activity to MJ’s “Thriller” (this one is always a crowd favorite!)

It’s Fall Ya’ll: Halloween Theme: Here you’ll learn how to create a Halloween-themed session and see a list of some of my favorite spooky books to use for book ‘n song activities.
It’s Fall Ya’ll: Halloween Books & Ideas: In this post, see how I use the book “We’re Off to Find the Witch’s House” paired with instruments to work on attention, impulse control and expressive language.
There you have it! Now let’s get session planning!
