Freebie: Mini Halloween Coloring Books

October – one of my VERY favorite seasons! The highs have dipped down into the 50’s, we had our first frost, the leaves are finally changing colors and I have pulled out ALL my October favorites. Of course, all the festive fall fun couldn’t happen without some serious behind-the-scenes October magic (a.k.a, adult work).


If you are drowning in pumpkin & spice, nervously eyeing Halloween costume patterns and a full October schedule, feverishly searching for sugar-free, classroom-approved Halloween treats, or just want a few minutes of peace & quiet to enjoy the season yourself – we’ve got you.

Our DIY Halloween mini doodle books have 9 illustrated mini pages to be colored in or completed, 9 different book cover options, and a sheet of blank mini pages. This is Halloween made EASY, and the little pages make perfect party favors, classroom activities, sugar-free treats – you can even turn them into a tiny book with a quick stake (er, hole punch) through the corner and ribbon! These pair perfectly with a Halloween movie marathon or our Halloween playlist over on Spotify (suitable for little monsters of all ages!).

No time to bind into a book? No problem! Just print out the pages, cut them apart and throw them into a bag with some crayons for easy entertainment anywhere!

Heads up holiday free printable hunters: we just added a mini Thanksgiving doodle book to our coloring collection! Visit our post for the free printable drawing + writing prompts and ideas for use.

*A note about affiliate links: We strive to use simple, earth-friendly supplies that can be purchased locally whenever we can, but sometimes we find the best universally available options, a rare eco-friendly find, or a niche product only available on Amazon or Woodpeckers Crafts. When included in our supply list, these products are affiliate links, and if you click-through to make a purchase we receive a small commission that helps us re-order these supplies!
