Halloween is such a fun time of year for toddlers! It’s filled with candy, playing dress-up, decorations galore, and the jackpot of all jackpots: TRICK-OR-TREATING!

Creating traditions with your littles can help capture the fun and excitement of any holiday.

But unfortunately, holidays come with major anticipation and HIGH expectations.

Bringing that fun into your home will really strengthen your relationship with your toddler and create those lifelong traditions.

However, the pressure of creating traditions and being that crafty fun mom can be daunting.

That’s why I reached out to some amazing, creative, and crafty moms and got their best tips for simple HALLOWEEN ACTIVITIES FOR TODDLERS!

These crafts are all SIMPLE to create for us busy moms, use super AFFORDABLE materials, and are sure to be LOVED by your little goblins 🙂

OMG. I cannot get over how EASY and AFFORDABLE this craft is! It was created by Sam at The Best Vinyl Cutters and it is absolutely GENIUS! All you need is a maple leaf, paint, and scissors. Hello, simplicity! And how fun is it to have them find their own leaf outside to use?! LOVE this idea!

Halloween Popsicle Stick Pumpkin Craft

Deanna from Honey & Lime created this simple craft, and it’s a good one! I love how easy it is, but it’s also durable and is something that can be displayed in your home and won’t bend or break easily. You can probably even save this one and bring it out every year as a decoration!
