Two Easy Ways to Create Your Own Halloween Cards

Halloween is coming up this weekend. If you're looking for a last-minute writing activity that has a Halloween theme, consider having students create Halloween cards. Storyboard That and Canva make it easy to create Halloween cards.

Canva is a service for creating graphics. Canva offers dozens of templates for creating infographics, letterhead, and social media posts. Take a look at the social media posts templates for 800x800px graphics and you will find a bunch of templates containing Halloween graphics. Your students can modify the templates by changing the colors, fonts, and graphics. Students can insert their own text into the templates. Completed templates can be printed.

On Storyboard That you can turn your storyboards into Halloween cards. In the Storyboard That creator you can use the myths and mystical scenes and characters to create your Halloween story. Once your storyboard is saved you can choose to print it with Halloween borders. The print-out includes lines for cutting and folding your cards. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to create Halloween cards on Storyboard That.
