Halloween is such a fun holiday for kids! We might not trick or treat, but we have a ton of fun on Halloween itself and in the week or two leading up to it. I try to make it fun and memorable because we are all about making memories!
To celebrate Halloween this year, we plan to enjoy some good books, crafts, and the great fall weather at a local farm where we will pick pumpkins. I always prepare for holidays with a flexible plan so that I’m not caught at the last minute wondering what activity we should do. Some of the activities I planned are more appropriate for the preschool age than the toddler age child, but I have found that my youngest is up for a challenge when his big brother is modeling how to do the activity for him!
Here’s Our Plan!
I always start with a handful of books…
The Spooky Wheels on the Bus
Room on the Broom
Happy Halloween Daniel Tiger!
Then with the help of Pinterest, I add in some crafts...
Tissue Paper Pumpkin
Construction Paper Pumpkins
Pumpkin Themed Sensory Bin with rice base
Invitation to create monsters
Pumpkin Painting and Carving
Pumpkin Potato Stamp
Cotton Ball Ghost
As I mentioned before, we will also be doing a farm visit! One of our local farms has a great Halloween and harvest themed event every weekend. It is always a blast.We might not do everything on this list, especially since Madeleine is due to arrive the first week of November, but we will do as much as we can!
Welcome to the family!
We are a laid back, fun, family of four living on a dime in 900 square feet. Life might not be perfect, but every moment of every day, it is beautiful.
