Toddler Activities

Invitation to Play: Halloween

This is the first year that our toddler has really gotten excited about costumes and trick-or-treating so I’ve really enjoyed celebrate the holiday in many ways with her! I set out some beans, split peas, pom poms, foam characters and kinetic sand for a Halloween themed play tray for this week.

If you don’t have Kinetic Sand yet, you need some We have a couple packs of purple and I’m planning to get some of the sand-colored sets! It is the most relaxing to play with – I think I have as much fun as our toddler when we get it out.

It holds its shape for long enough that you can mold it, but still manages to be soft and pliable. Kinetic Sand doesn’t dry out which is perfect because I can leave it out in our play tray or flisat table without ruining it. It is mostly easy to clean up, unlike actual sand, although I have a hard time vacuuming every bit up from our Berber carpet. Still, all in all I highly recommend!
