Looking for a quick Halloween idea to distract your toddler from the TV or to avert a temper tantrum? Preschoolers and toddlers both love to sing and dance. Halloween songs and finger plays are a fun and easy preschool activity.

Using a Halloween theme is a fun idea for teaching preschoolers about ABCs, math, colors, and more. Halloween preschool activities that teach help preschoolers learn about shapes (make triangle witches or provide different shapes for a jack-o-lantern face), the letter “P” (Pumpkin), colors (orange pumpkins and black witches/ cats), and so much more.

Halloween is also a great opportunity for your child to express herself and to learn to make decisions. We all know that the hand-me-down pumpkin costume in your closet is tempting, but allowing your preschooler to make decisions teaches her so much and also helps her feel a little more in-control of her life. Halloween costumes don’t need to be expensive, find items around your house to transform your preschooler into a princess or pirate or bunny.
Get creative and have fun! A little work (and patience) on your part now will help your child make her own decisions and be more independent as she grows- making your life easier in the long run!
