Simple Halloween Craft and Activity Ideas for Toddlers 

These simple Haloween craft and activity ideas for toddlers have all been shared by members of the My Bored Toddler Facebook Group. You can join HERE if you're not already a part of our group. 

What I love most about these are they are showing examples of real life toddler Halloween activity ideas - they're not 'Pinterest Crafts' they're real crafts, that real parents have done with their toddlers. They also look like so much fun!! 

With all toddler crafts and activities remember that it's all about the process. While kids do love seeing the end product, it's totally fine if they want to change things, use different colors etc or even if they totally change the activity. The point is that they are being creative and having fun! 

When I do crafts with the toddler age group, I often do the first one with them, following the instructions and then I find that they are normally keen to try another one. This time I let them do it however they want! Often their version of the craft turns out better than the original idea I had planned. 

If you are loving Halloween, make sure you check out our HUGE collection of Halloween craft and activity ideas for toddlers. 

Spatula Ghosts 

Kelly made these Spatula ghosts - aren't they great! All you would need for this is a plastic spatula, white paint, black card and googly eyes (the stick on ones like these are best).
