Happy Halloween! Such a fun Holiday, isn’t it? Here’s 10 Easy Halloween Activities for toddlers and preschoolers that you can do at home.
I find it’s easy to plan activities during this time of the year because of the items available in stores…
As an Early Childhood Educator and an artistic person, I enjoy myself going to stores and picking up objects to bring home for beautiful arts or simply to create things with kids such as miniatures.
Also the amount of pumpkins available nowadays… beside carving it, you can make tons of recipes with your little ones and turn it into a cooking activity 😉 Click here for easy Pumpkin Recipes
