Our Top 5 Activities To keep Little Monsters Entertained for Halloween

Here at Natalie’s Nannies we LOVE Halloween because families can have so much fun together with — and without — spending an arm and a leg. From spooky movies, music, and games to fun crafts, snacks, and parties, October offers a month packed with family pleasures. We collected some of our favourites from the Web for inspiration to get kids and families learning, doing, and having fun together!

1. Apple Print Pumpkins

Simply cut an apple in half, using orange paint get the children to print the pumpkins and decorate!! Great for fine motor skills!

2. Toilet Roll Spiders

Simply cut in to the toilet rolls about an inch, some of the trips will need cutting off. Use black paint to stamp. Add googly eyes, glitter and whatever decoration you would like to your spooky spider.

3. Spooky Sensory Bags

Get some re-sealable freezer bags and fill with hair gel, cooked spaghetti, jelly, oil and any other squishy textured object and place in some spiders, eye balls, etc. Babies love this kind of thing! You can also stick them on your window!

4. Wriggly Worms

Cook the spaghetti, place a few drops of food dye in to the spaghetti and leave to try for a couple of hours. Place in to a tray, and to make it even more interesting add some spiders and other spooky creatures!

5. Cotton Bud Skeleton

Such a simple but effective idea!! All you need is some black card and some cotton buds to make you’re very own skeleton. Try out some different positions!
