Some of these last minute preschool Halloween ideas just came to me today! Talk about last minute…tomorrow is Halloween!
Sorting By Two Attributes
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.
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
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.
This is no Itsy Bitsy Spider. He measures about 3 feet across! We sing Itsy Bitsy Spider then we sing “Biggy Wiggy Spider” with the same tune and same lyrics but deep BIG voices!
Our Jack-O-Lantern is also very big although there’s no reference point in the pic. Both of this and the spider were collaborative works.
These sensory tables are great fun.
Matching Dollar Tree character erasers.
Counting Dollar Tree spiders putting them in Dollar Tree pumpkins.
Skwishy, gooey, yucky. Wet angel hair pasta, wet pumpkin seeds and guts, grape jelly, wet eggs (small). All set inside bowls and covered tightly with grocery bags. Cut an X in the top of the bag to create an opening just big enough for tiny 3 or 4 year old hands. Let the “fun” begin!
Stickers on haunted house pattern. Find the pattern for Free at Printables!
DAP Jack-O-Lanterns. Children cut out their own pumpkin shape, then they were offered different shapes to glue on.
