Halloween is a fantastic time of the year for the whole family, even more so for children as it means that they can pile their faces full with candy. Of course, you are still going to need to make it a little bit of fun for them, that way they can really enjoy themselves! In this article I want to take a little look at some of the top activities for young children. Let's dive straight in shall we?

Trick or Treating

This is the ultimate Halloween activity for children, and generally speaking, it should be pretty safe letting them wander around from door to door (there will be a lot of other children out!). However, if you are dealing with particularly young children then I do suggest that you walk around with them, just to make sure that they stay safe. At the end of the day, they get to eat their candy. This will be a lot of fun for them!

Pumpkin Carving

This is one of those activities where you are going to need to supervise your children, but it is still going to be great fun for them! If you have multiple children, then seeing who can design the best pumpkin can be pretty competitive. I suggest that you head online to find out more information if you are unsure about how to carve pumpkins. When you are done, stick a candle in them and display proudly outside of your home.

Making a Costume

One of the best parts about Halloween is being able to dress up. If your child is going to be heading out Trick or Treating this year then don't rent a costume from the local costume store. Instead, save some money and make one with them. They will have a lot of fun doing this, just ask them what they want to go as and you shouldn't have too much of a problem making the costume. It doesn't matter how good it is, what matters is the fact you are doing something with them.

Decorating the House

For me, a key part of Halloween is being able to put up a couple of decorations. This is an activity for children that they are actually going to find pretty fun. I suggest making the decorations yourself, don't forget to include the pumpkins you have also made! Stick them around your house in various places, and make sure to decorate the outside of the home! Basically, try to make it as fun as possible. This will be an activity your children will remember for a long time.


As you can see, there are a lot of things you can do when Halloween rolls around. So why not team up with your child and have a little bit fun? Of course, make sure they are supervised as much a possible, particularly when planning activities for younger children, and you shouldn't have too much of an issue making the whole day completely awesome!
