Halloween Fun For Families with Toddlers and Preschoolers

Lots of Halloween fun for families with toddlers and preschoolers.
From creating trick or treat bags, making cards, creating dark dens, exploring sensory bottles, textured play dough, pumpkin carving and party game for all - this post covers it all.

A great way to put smiles on your nearest and dearests faces.
Why not send to your little ones friends houses through the post?

A very simple yet effective craft idea!
Great for little hands.

Little N really enjoyed helping me fill the bags with different candy and sweets.
The children and parents who came trick or treating were so grateful too.

Whether you give them out with your Halloween cards or use them for game prizes, they are a great light hearted touch.

5) Make some Halloween gifts

Its great to give, so whether you decide to buy gifts for Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins or Friends they will be appreciated.
Again they could be prizes to be won at your parties

6) Create some free, recycled decorations for your home and garden.

7) Make a Halloween Themed Sensory Box

8) Carve a Pumpkin

Aswel as working with your little ones to help scoop out the insides of the Pumpkins let them create their own faces by using these great stick on face features.
Brilliant for younger children who are too young to carve faces.

9) Create a Pumpkin Seed Sensory Bottle

Create a sensory bottle with the dried out pumpkin seeds for you children to explore after Halloween. Great way for babies access this too.

10) Host a Halloween Party and plan lots of games for your guests, taking into considering ages, making sure you have something for everyone.

Here are some game ideas:
1) Make feely boxes and have your guest work in pairs to guess the contents.
2) Make a dark den full of torches, projectors, flashing LED light up figures etc.
3) Balloon popping using a devils trident (we added a needle to the middle fork) adult supervision.
4) Halloween themed Bingo.
5) Pin the tail on the black cat.
6) Best Carved Pumpkin.
7) Guess that tune.
8) Pictionary on a whiteboard.

11) Introduce a well loved Halloween Story like 'Room on the Broom'

12) Halloween themed Play Dough

Using black food colouring, making some Halloween themed textured play dough, and some themed materials and different textures to encourage imaginative play.
