Preparing for Halloween with Your Preschoolers
Halloween is a fun time for kids of all ages, but it can be especially exciting for preschoolers. If you’re getting ready to take your little ones trick or treating, here are a few tips to make the experience enjoyable for everyone:
Start by picking a Halloween costume that is comfortable and easy to move in. You don’t want your child to be uncomfortable or frustrated while they’re trying to enjoy themselves.
Make sure your child has a bag or bucket to collect candy in. A small backpack or even a pillowcase will do the trick.
Plan out your route ahead of time. This will help you avoid any potential problem areas and make sure you hit all the good houses.
Go trick or treating with friends or family for extra fun. Not only will this provide some extra supervision, but it’s also a great way to meet new people in the neighborhood.
Be sure to enjoy the treats (but moderation is key!). This is your child’s big night, so let them indulge a little. Just be sure to save some candy for later on in the season.
With a little planning and preparation, you can make this Halloween a memorable one for your preschooler. So get out there and have some fun!
DIY Halloween Treat Bag
With just a few simple household items, your preschoolers will be on their way to creating a simple DIY Halloween treat bag.
What You’ll Need:
What You’ll Do:
To start the craft, scroll to the bottom of this post to download and print the Halloween treat bag template.
Cut out the template pieces and trace them onto cardstock.
Glue the bat wings onto the paper bag toward the top near the opening.
Glue the bat ears to the inside of the bag opening so they stick out. They can go on the “front” or “back” of the bag.
Glue the white fangs and the googly eyes on the front of the bag a bit lower than the wings.
Now, you can fill the bags with treats for your child’s party or they can use it to go on a short trick-or-treat outing.
