Last Minute Preschool Halloween Ideas

Last Minute Preschool Halloween Ideas

Some of these last minute preschool Halloween ideas just came to me today! Talk about last minute…tomorrow is Halloween!

Sorting By Two Attributes

Last Minute Preschool Halloween Ideas  Spider webs in shoe boxes. The pic doesn’t show it very well but there are cards in front of each box with spider/fly on one side and orange/black on the other side. The flies are just a printed pic of a realistic fly laminated and cut out. They are stuck onto the ribbon web with scotch tape. Kiddos grab a spider or fly and sort. 


Last Minute Preschool Halloween Ideas  Stirring our brew. Black paydough. See recipe below.


      Marble painting spider webs and handprint spiders! I cut out “web shapes” the children marble painted with white paint. Later we painted handprint spiders. This is achieved by turning the paper after the first handprint is done. Then overlapping the palms so the fingers stick out on both sides. Let it dry and cut them out

Dramatic Play

   Last Minute Preschool Halloween Ideas  Masking tape web on a window and table. On the window (actually our door to the playground) I used masking tape first and then added double sided tape to some of the web to make it sticky like real web.

?Fall Fun?

These activities make?Fall Fun?for every one!

Cookie Cutter Prints

Fall Fun Cookie Cutter Printing

Coockie cutter printing is easy enough for toddlers to accomplish and the results are satisfying. It’s process art with a nice product.

Negative Space

Fall Fun

This technique is called negative space art. Also proccess art with a nice product. Children place leaves where they want on the paper, choose paint colors and finger paint, sponge paint, dabber paint, or just ain’t with a brush all around the leaves. Before the paint is dry lift off the leaves to see what is revealed.

Handprint Trees

Fall Fun Handprint Trees

More proccess art with this hand print finger print art. These trees are so nice when done each season and you’ll have a series of four in the spring! Simply paint the arm and hand brown, and  print . The only advice I can offer is to place the arm and hand print lower on the paper. This will give the tree top more fullness.

Sensory Table

Fall Fun Sensory Table

This is the easy part. Teachers just kind of dump stuff in and let the kids have at it! Silk leaves and gourds here.

Teacher Made Game

The best part of this game is the kids get to collect the chestnuts just like little squirrels! Teachers just cut a long strip maybe 20 inches long by 6 or 8 inches wide. Draw little brown circles one for each #. Laminate and it’s ready to play!
