Fall Activities for Kids

San Diego Halloween Activities for Kids – Meet the Crawly Creatures!


Grab your favorite Halloween costume and join us for fun, fall activities for kids and the whole family!
This 90-minute, hands-on, Halloween Tour includes a walk through the Crawly Creature Cave and provides a chance to meet and pet our more “spooky,” but often misunderstood, animal-friends.

Scout Groups Will Enjoy These Fall Activities
Through festive Halloween activities, your children’s group will not only meet slitherly, creepy, crawly new friends, but learn about these animals, too! That’s why this tour is a great Girl Scout activity or Boy Scout activity! Your Girl Scout or Boy Scout will learn…

  • Why do snakes stick out their tongues and always keep their eyes open?
  • What does a spider’s exoskeleton look like?
  • How do Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches hiss?

Ask about Scout Patches available for purchase!

This Halloween Tour is perfect for Daisy and Brownie Girl Scout Troops, Cub and Boy Scout Troops, Preschools, and Elementary School Groups.
