Toddler Halloween Activity

This afternoon my little peanut and I wanted to do something fun for Halloween since it is two (short) weeks away (can you believe it?!?).  Here is what we came up with:

Does this look like something you would be interested in doing?  If so, here is what we did.

It all started a few weeks ago when I was searching around for a fun, toddler-friendly halloween activity.  I came across this page and printed out a few copies with the intention to do an alphabet project.  Instead of using the ghosts for the alphabet (a cute idea, maybe for another time), I decided to cut out only 7 ghosts - the length of her name.  Using a sharpie marker, I wrote each letter of her name on one ghost.

Next came the best part - coloring the "friendly" ghosts!  I gave my little one two different orange crayons.  Since I am dealing with an almost 2 year old, we put each ghost on top of an old magazine just in case she missed coloring in the lines:)

Finally when the ghosts were a nice color orange, we put a little glue dot (left over from my scrapbooking days) on each clothespin (7 in total) and stuck a ghost on top.  I hung up some string using the 3M command "damage-free" clips (these are great because they don't remove the paint) and clipped each letter on. 

Ta-da!   Simple, cute and helps to put our house in the Halloween spirit:)



  1. What a neat idea! My little guy is crazy about ghosts, so we may try this too.

  2. Thank you! She loves looking up at the ghosts and proudly spells her name:)


<3 We would love to hear from you - it would make our day:)
