Halloween Tongue Twisters For Kids
Halloween can bring out the theatrical side to all of us. Kids and adults can enjoy dressing up, creating decorations, and trying out various characters.
Want something simple and fun to get everyone laughing?
Tongue Twisters are one of the biggest hits. It’s so much fun to try out short and long tongue twisters. Try saying it 5 times as fast as you can, and you’ll have yourself and the rest of the crowd laughing. Try it all together. Take turns. Say it as loud and clearly as you can.
You’ll be getting great practice for your elocution and also adding to the party!

Make Up Your Own
Use alliteration by creating a tongue twister with words that have the same starting sounds.
Try any fun words that might be difficult to say. Make it short or make it long.
Find Tongue Twisters in Plays and Poems
Try this famous Shakespeare line. “Double, double, toil and trouble. Fire burn and cauldron bubble.” It is spoken by the three witches in the William Shakespeare play Macbeth (Act IV, Scene I).
“Skeletons, spirits and haunts” is a wonderful line to repeat from The Day After Halloween by Shel Silverstein. You’ll find a treasure trove of poems that are fun to read out loud and the art is such a treat, too!
Look through your own favorite plays and poems for lines that could get your tongue twisted, and then try it out. If it’s a little hard to say, and fun to try, share it with others. You’re sure to get a great laugh out of it, and enjoy some excellent writing, too.
