Kids just LOVE to be a part of decorating for Halloween, but some of the Halloween Traditions, like carving a pumpkin aren’t 100% safe for young children. Yes, there are “child safe” knives out there, but pumpkins are very HARD and therefore difficult for young children to cut. What can you do to get your child involved in pumpkin carving and Halloween decorating? Here is a list of idea: Stick up Halloween Window clings Draw Halloween pictures and signs and hang them up Help scoop out the seeds of a pumpkin Sort the seeds out of the pumpkin “gunk” (this … Continue reading
Buy one of those cobwebs in a bag at the Dollar Store (gotta love Dollar Stores!) and hide creepy creatures inside of it. Boy, was it ever difficult to find creatures that weren’t choking hazards wee ones! Children love to feel, stretch and pull the cobweb apart a hundred times in search for spiders and creepy crawlies galore. Other items, good for older children to find, include pumpkin seeds and Halloween plastic rings. If you’d like to learn how to make Halloween Shakers, check out our Halloween Shakers post.
Use children’s chopsticks to pick up pumpkin seeds, it was an exciting and fun challenge. It also kept the kids entertained for quite some tiime!This is the 2 year old’s version of a Jack-o-Lantern!And, this is a 5 year old’s version! What a simple activity, but it was so much fun. Did you know that cooked pumpkin seeds can last in a ziplock bag for an entire year! They are so dried out that they don’t go moldy at all. I made so many last year that we will have them for crafts and activities for years to come 🙂 … Continue reading

Pink and Green Mama calls her Halloween Shakers “Eye Spy Bottles”–another terrific idea, but we decided to make musical instruments of shakers instead. The kids love these shakers and they are actually one of their favourite toys to play with right now, believe it or not. Mind you, musical instruments in general are definitely a favourite around here–so take that with a grain of salt! Haha! Have a Happy Halloween everyone!!! Do you have any special Halloween plans? I’d love to hear about them. I just love Halloween. Here are our materials all laid out for you. I coloured my … Continue reading
If you don’t have time to be creative, but you want to serve a fun and festive snack to your little ones, here’s an idea…. Buy festive icecube trays from your local Dollar Store or this year, I’ve seen them at the Canadian Superstore (Loblaws). Young children just LOVE to get their snack tray filled up with fun little food bits and they feel like a big kid when they carry it by themselves to the table. The trays are so much fun to fill and they portion out the smallest snacks so their tummies don’t get too full. You … Continue reading

Here is a picture of my son helping to prepare a pumpkin for making pumpkin puree: This Pumpkin Cake is honestly the most moist cake I think I’ve ever had! And, if it doesn’t get eaten up first, it stays moist for quite a good length of time too. It also freezes quite well. Treats in a school lunch perhaps? Pumpkin Cake Ingredients2 cups freshly pureed pumpkin (can use canned if you prefer)1.5 cups sugar1 cup vegetable oil4 eggs, lightly beaten2 cups flour2 tsp baking soda2 tsp cinnamon Directions Beat pumpkin, sugar and oil.
