It’s the time of year I avoid certain stores. Stores with bloody zombies and freaky Frankensteins prominently displayed to scare small children. Our small children.
So what Halloween festivities can small children enjoy without the fright?
Watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” sip hot cider, and eat carmel apples. Then, try one of these not-too-scary Halloween ideas: pumpkins, spiders, learning fun and festive food!
Pumpkins go hand-in-hand with Halloween. The great thing? There are millions of fun and safe activities for young kids to do with pumpkins.
- Pumpkin Drip Art
- Alphabet Pumpkins
- Pumpkin Head Discovery Bottles
- Jack-O’-Lantern Paper Chains
- Tissue Paper Pumpkins
2. Spiders and Spiderwebs
Spiders can be scary – real ones. But playing with these pretend spiders and webs will be way more fun than any scary real spiders.
- Play Dough Spiders
- Spiderweb Walking Game
- Spider Web Balloon
- God’s Eyes Spider Webs
- Coffee Filter Spiderwebs
Yum and fun. I’m off to make those polka-dot cupcakes and Halloween Terrariums.
What are you going to do?
Have a Happy Halloween everyone!
