Halloween for Toddlers

Halloween can be fun for everyone and just takes the tiniest bit of planning. We at Binky Bear have come up with a few ideas which are fun for the little ones without being too scary and we’ve got a fantastic competition for you over on Facebook to win an entire Binky Bear Collection Gift Set. Scroll down to find out more.

A Halloween for Toddlers Alternative to the Pumpkin

This year forget the torture of pumpkin-carving! Mandarin-pumpkins are so much easier to do with small hands. They also happen to be a Binky exclusive and no knives or metal spoons are involved. Plus, they’re healthy to eat afterwards but don’t tell the kids!

You will need Mandarins/tangerines or similar and whole cloves. Give everyone a mandarin and about a dozen cloves for the jagged mouths and staring eyes. It may help the tiny ones if you prick holes in the skin as a guide.

A tray of these combined with banana ghosts (skinned halved bananas with chocolate chip eyes and mouth) makes a sweet and healthy treat.

Ghostly Trail

Tailor-make your own Haunted Trail for the garden (or indoors). You can pitch this to just one age-group or a combination of older and younger kids. This may involve a bit of preparation for you but nothing complicated. We love these Spooky Eyes from Rust and Sunshine: http://www.rustandsunshine.com/2012/10/glowing-eyes.html
And why not hang up a few scary signs:- On a piece of old wood or card-board hand write something simple enough for a 5-year old to read out loud to everyone “Don’t go into the woods!” or simply “Keep Out!”.

Get outside

Alternatively, search on-line for a spooky wood near you for a late afternoon spot of spookiness with all the family. Make a Chilling Check-list and tick them off:
1. Spiders’ webs preferably with spiders!
2. An old tree-trunk. What’s inside?
3. Footprints in the mud.
4. Rustlings in the trees – who’s there?
