I currently only look after children aged 2 ½ and under so Halloween doesn’t yet mean anything to them but we have been putting a little Halloween twist on some of our recent activities nevertheless. From messy play the youngest can be involved in, to stories we can all enjoy together, to puzzles for the older ones – we’ve all been involved.
- Messy play: Messy spaghetti and playdough in blood red and black, the colour of darkness and green monster slime (gloop)
- Books: Halloween sliding windows book, great for developing fine motor skills, learning new words and numbers and Tickle Monster by Edouard Manceau
- Puzzles: Scary spider puzzle – Puzzles are huge here! We have far too many but love them all!
Areas of Learning covered: Physical Development, Mathematics, Literacy, Expressive Arts and Design, Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication & Language, Understanding the World.
Happy Halloween everyone! Mwahahaha!
