In a large orange pillow case or orange colored paper bag, place a number of halloween objects. Allow children to take turns reaching in the bag to feel the objects. As they feel what is in the bag have them describe the object with out telling what the object is. After all children have had a turn have them tell you what objects they think are in the bag. When correct answers are given take objects out of the bag.
