5 Halloween Activities To Enjoy At Home

31st October

Halloween is nearly here & the build up is so much fun for our little ones. Here’s 5 of my favourite Halloween Activities for you to enjoy at home with your little ones:

Using apples cut in half, press them into a tray or plate of orange paint & print on to a sheet of paper. You can then use black cut out paper shapes to put the mouth & eyes on your pumpkins. Pumpkin Printing is loved by all ages!

 I always have a pack of rich tea/digestive biscuits along with some icing sugar &  food colouring in the cupboard for a quick activity, so for Halloween, lets make spooky biscuits!

Make green icing & decorate your biscuits with squeezy icing, marshmallows & sprinkles to make monsters!

Great fun to decorate & then eat. Once weaned, babies can explore the icing too & it’s all edible.


You Will Need:

  • Bucket/Tub
  • Water
  • Wooden Spoon
  • A collection of items from the house

Fill your bucket or tub with water and then go off on a hunt around the house for your ingredients, add them as you go and then give them a big stir. Once ready you can serve it up in bowls/plates.

A few ideas of ingredients are:

  • Herbs
  • Spices
  • Vegetable
  • Cereal
  • Hand Soap
  • Food Colouring
  • Cotton balls or pom poms
  • Glitter

It isn’t Halloween if you don’t carve a pumpkin, but rather than throw the pumpkin guts away, use it as messy play. My girls loved squishing the seed & insides through their fingers. Perfect for babies & older siblings.

Either in the bath or a large tub of water, fill with apples & use a large spoon or ladle to scoop & collect them up. For tiny ones, let them scoop them up with their hands. You could also try traditional apple bobbing by trying to pick them up with your teeth.
