Halloween activities for toddlers. My favorite time of year is here. The cool brisk air, sweater weather, fall colors, pumpkin patch, and HALLOWEEN!
Yay 2020! The awful year of covid and uncertainty. And covid isn’t slowing down. Most places have canceled trick or treating. So, what does that mean for our kiddos?

Trick or Treating is such a fun activity for kids of all ages. They are able to get dressed up as their favorite character, animal, or whatever they would like to be. Then, walk around their neighborhood and collect candy. It is the time of year that a small kid (or even a big kid) look forward to.
This year is going to look a little different. I hope you live in an area where it isn’t canceled although you may still be worried to send your child out. Here is a list of Halloween activities to do instead.

Kids love to paint or color. Grab a few of the little pumpkins and allow them to express their creativity. Or grab a couple of bigger ones and draw a scene or picture on them. Let them get messy and have a good time.
Read a Halloween book
My boys always enjoy reading books, it is a must, especially at bedtime. So, reading a Halloween book can add to the Halloween festivities. You could also watch a family-friendly Halloween movie. Some of our favorites are Hocus Pocus, The Addam’s Family, and Casper.
Tie Dye shirts
Tie Dying shirts is always a fun time and a neat activity to do with kids. They are able to pick the colors they would like on their shirts and can help put the dye on. You can also use fall colors to make it feel more of a Halloween activity.
Go on a walk outside, collect some items, and make a picture when you get home. Or collect some leaves and do a leaf run. Place a piece of paper over the leaf and have your little one color. You will have a nice leaf rub that your little one created.
Even though Trick or Treating is canceled does not mean we can’t enjoy some treats. Make sure you relax and eat some candy with your little ones. But not too much or they will be bouncing off the walls.
However you spend your Halloween this year, it will be a memorable one for everyone. Do your best to create a normal holiday and spend time together as a family. I hope you have a spooky Halloween.
