The arrival of October means Halloween will be here before we know it! Holidays are always a fun time to create special memories with your preschooler. Check out the tips below to make the most of Halloween with your preschooler!
Choose a Costume
Choosing a Halloween costume is one of the most fun parts of Halloween! Your child will love looking at all the options and picking one out. If your child has a hard time deciding, only take them to one or two stores and give them a time limit for choosing. Remind them they will get to be something else next year! If buying a costume isn’t your thing, look online for hundreds of easy DIY costume ideas. Your child will love looking for supplies and making a costume together.
Decorate a Candy Bag
A fun and useful Halloween craft is having your child make a bag for their Halloween candy! Find a plain white gift bag or use a brown paper grocery bag. Provide your preschooler with some art supplies and let them be creative! Some great decorating supplies are markers, Halloween stickers, cut out shapes, or glitter glue.
Host a Halloween Party
Hosting a Halloween party is a fun way for your child to spend time with their friends or family on a holiday! This is a great substitute to trick-or-treating if your child gets frightened easily or if you aren’t yet comfortable with your child going. Use the party as an excuse to make Halloween themed decorations and snacks! Our favorites are jack-o-lanterns or cookies decorated like candy corn.
We hope these fun activities will make your Halloween this year extra special! You and your family are sure to create lasting memories that your children will talk about all year long.
