5 things we're doing to have fun this Halloween:
1. Handing out allergy-friendly candy and preparing little guy's pumpkin filled with candy.
Here are some of my current favorites. Most are lollipops or gummy candy, but all are nut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, wheat-free and sesame-free Halloween candy for Little Guy.
2. Reading fun Halloween books.
Here are 3 of our current favorites! All great for both a 1 and 3 year old in some way or another!
My First Halloween
The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything
Happy Halloween, Little Critter!
3. Making fun Halloween-themed food.
This is something I saw on Pinterest which you may have seen too somewhere on the interweb ;) The original photo used whole peeled clementines for the pumpkins, but I made mandarin oranges work for us. Especially since Little Gal is currently obsessed with them! Little Guy loved having Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips on his half a banana that morning too.
We've also had fun making our Pumpkin Bake Oatmeal Bites and Healthy Green Ghostbuster Smoothies these past few weeks.
4. Doing something "fall-ish" every weekend.
We are loving the beautiful fall weather we've had throughout September and October here in the Philadelphia area. We've made at least 5 trips to various farms in the area to pick apples, run through hay mazes and pick pumpkins. We're trying to take advantage of the fun fall activities while we can.
This weekend we took a hayride and picked pumpkins at a local farm with Grammy. Here's Little Guy with a miniature pumpkin he found.
Thanks Grammy for a taking a family hayride photo :)
5. Making fun Halloween crafts
We made Halloween sand art at a local pumpkin fest this weekend and Grandma also helped Little Guy make trash bag ghosts for the tree in the front of our house. That's just scratching the surface of the Halloween kid craft ideas!
