Simple Halloween Activities for Toddlers

We are getting all decked out for Halloween this weekend. We've been playing games, decorating pumpkins, and we even made it to the pumpkin patch last week. We've also been sharing pumpkin themed activities over in our Halloween Newsletter (supporting The Huntington's Disease Society of America).

For some reason October is always our busiest month. I always have grand intentions to do cool Halloween activities with my kids, but the reality is that we don't have too much time.

This year I am making a list of simple Halloween activities that work well for toddlers and don't require much prep. This will be my "go to" list this month so that we'll get to do some fun Halloween activities but I also won't feel like I am completely drowning.

I plan to share more Simple Halloween activities for toddlers over on Instagram this month, so pop over and follow me if you would like. I am @kristinatoddlerapproved. Tag any toddler Halloween activities you do with the hashtag #toddlerhalloween so that I can find them and check them out!

Here are 13 awesome Halloween activities for toddlers to try this month:

Feed the Monster game
Jack-o-Lantern Squish bag by Fantastic Fun and Learning
Spider Web Course by Dirt and Boogers
Pumpkin Printing by No Time for Flashcards

Footprint Ghosts
Pool Noodle Pumpkin Printing
Fizzle Pumpkin Painting
Ice Ghosts Sensory Play by The Golden Gleam

Purple People Eater Craft
Sticky Spider Web Activity by Hands On As We Grow
Halloween sensory activity by Housing a Forest
Ghost bowling by No Time for Flashcards
Colorful Monster Craft

I think I will actually be able to try out a lot of these activities this month. So many use materials that I already have around the house. Do you see any you want to try? If you do try some, post a photo on instagram or our Facebook wall and tag it with #toddlerhalloween so that I can come find it!

You can also find several of our other favorite toddler Halloween activities in this Toddler Approved Halloween post for toddlers.

Can't wait to see all of the fun stuff you try this month! Want more Halloween ideas? Pop over to our Toddler Approved Facebook community. I share several more over there each day.
