Looking for Halloween Activities for Toddlers, Preschoolers, & Big Kids? I’ve got you covered.
There’s nothing worse than scrolling through Pinterest and finding nothing. You know what I mean – tons of search results (duh) but nothing that’s going to work for your kids.
I know: I’ve lived the frustration so I channeled it into a massive list of easy Halloween activities for toddlers and kids of all ages.
These activities are simple – you can set them up in seconds.
These activities use “normal” items – you don’t need to run out and get anything extra.
These activities were designed with toddlers in mind – you don’t need to worry about the age level.
40+ easy Halloween Activities for Toddlers and Preschoolers
I searched the world over – and by world, I mean Pinterest – to find the best of the best Halloween activities for toddlers and big kids.
Because I’m type-A and just can’t handle a giant long list of links, I’ve broken the activities into 3 categories: arts & crafts, sensory inspired, and easy activities and included a photo of each activity.
