Well who wants to hear about Halloween in November? But as I don’t write up these things until after we finish the theme… here is our Halloween tot trays recap in November. 🙂

We kept it pretty simple; the Halloween theme wasn’t even a full week. But, we still had fun with it! Per my board of Tot School Plans — there were so many activities we didn’t do! Naturally, though, there was much Halloween-y fun off the trays, like carving and painting pumpkins, making a gingerbread house, visiting multiple pumpkin patches, and of course: trick-or-treating!

For the record, E was Chris from Wild Kratts. His creature power was Owl. Between some handiwork and these wonderful Eagle Plush Costume Wings, his costume was great.

Now on to a quick recap of 11 pretty simple Halloween Tot Trays & Activities:

  1. Stacking Cups
  2. Counting Sheet (and fun visor)
  3. Cutting Strips {from Bingo game}
  4. Halloween Beads
  5. Roll a Jack-O-Lantern
  6. Halloween Dough Tray
  7. Candy Corn Do a Dot w/Stickers
  8. Rice & Wiggle Eyes Sensory Tray
  9. Halloween Counting
  10. Watercolors
  11. Stamping

Stacking Cups

  • Gave him a dozen plastic cups we have collected over the years
  • Make a tower!

Counting Sheet (and fun visor)

  • Put the perfect Halloween Counting Preschool Worksheet from Ziggity Zoom on his desk with a pencil
  • I had purchased a cute jack-o-lantern visor and decided to give this to him then, too.

Cutting Strips {from Bingo game}

  • Cutting strips are actually from the Monster Mash Bingo printable from Create Craft Love – thank you!
  • Included scissors of course.

Halloween Beads

  • This is just a little set I picked up for 33 cents
  • I tied one bead to one end of the elastic, and put the rest of the beads in a container.

Roll a Jack-O-Lantern

  • This is the Roll a Jack-o-Lantern from 733 Blog — thank you!
  • Printed the two sheets in color. Cut and laminated the pieces and cut them out

Rice & Wiggle Eyes Sensory Tray

  • This was inspired by the Sensory Boo Bags by House of Burke – thanks!

  • A fun tray for exploring volume!

Halloween Item Counting

  • I printed the very cute Happy Halloween Simple Printable from Intentional Momma as is on cardstock
  • Gave to E with some crayons in matching colors.


  • One of my favorites — the $1 watercolor books from Michael’s
  • I think he did three pages during the course of the week.


  • Started with two 50 cent Halloween stamps from one of the craft stores
  • Gave to E with a washable stamp pad and some strips of orange cardstock

Not much more to say about this week other than: Happy Halloween!

This wraps up our themes that reflect the fall season, other than Thanksgiving. November is back to a few broad themes (Numbers, Animals) before a shorter Thanksgiving theme!

I’m proud to be linking this post up to 1+1+1=1’s Tot School Gathering Place with activities that E enjoyed at 38 months old! Also linked up over at the A Little Bird Told Me Link Party, Mommy Monday Blog Hop, Hip Homeschool Hop, Hearts for Home Blog Hop, Pinworthy Projects Link Party, and Small Victories Sunday!
