Halloween multiplication worksheets – a fun Halloween-themed way to keep on top of those times tables.
Yep, as soon as the summer is done and the kids are back at school, it seems like Halloween is upon us.
Halloween is a really fun holiday with so much scope for great kids’ activities. So, with that in mind, today’s post is all about Halloween math. Or, to be more precise, Halloween multiplication.
If you’re looking for a fun, Halloween-themed way to help your kiddos practice their multiplication facts, then check out these Halloween multiplication worksheets.
Now, these are not your usual multiplication worksheets! Keep reading below to find out more.
What are these Halloween multiplication worksheets all about?
This resource consists of 11 different worksheets.
Nine of the worksheets practice a single multiplication table (2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s). The last 2 worksheets practice a selection from all multiplication tables (from 1 x 1 up to 10 x 10).
Each worksheet consists of 10 questions. In each question, there is a number sentence to be completed. But, the numbers in the number sentence are represented by Halloween pictures.
To decode the number sentences, you need to look at the table at the top of the worksheet. There, you will see that each number from 1 to 10 is represented by a Halloween picture. For example, an owl picture represents the number 4 and a pumpkin stands for the number 7.
Once you have decoded the number sentence, you can then complete the number sentence by writing the answer to the multiplication question in the box.
These Halloween multiplication worksheets put a fun Halloween spin on math facts practice.

Who are these worksheets for?
These worksheets are aimed at children in grades 2 to 4.
The nice thing about having 11 different sheets to choose from is that you can select the worksheets that work best for your child.
If your child is just starting out learning their multiplication facts, they can begin with the 10s, 5s and 2s. (If they need to, they could check each answer using a multiplication table too.)
If your child mostly knows their times tables and just needs to practice them to keep them fresh in the their mind, they could work their way through each single multiplication table and then go on to the two ‘All Facts’ sheets at the end, which practise a selection of facts from all multiplication tables (1s through 10s).

Do these worksheets have an answer key?
A simple answer key is included. These worksheets require no prep and are quick and easy to mark.
How can I use these worksheets in the classroom?
If you’re a teacher looking for some fun Halloween resources for your math lessons, then these will work a treat (no Halloween pun intended…).
These worksheets are great for classwork, homework or as an activity for a child who has finished all their classwork and needs a fun bonus activity. These activities can be used every year around Halloween – kids will always need to practise multiplication facts!
With these worksheets, differentiation is easy. As your students will likely all be working at different levels and need to practice different multiplication tables, you can simply choose the worksheets that they need to practice. Or, if a student knows all their tables, the two ‘all facts’ sheets let them practise a random selection.
These worksheets are included as black and white versions as well as the colour versions shown here.
If you don’t want to print out multiple copies, one good tip for using these is to laminate them and have students complete them with a dry-wipe marker. They can then check their own answers using the answer key.
