Looking for some fun Halloween toddler school trays you can do with your toddler? Keep reading for some fun ideas!
Halloween is such a fun holiday for theme related activities. We put these toddler school trays together for you and they are really fun! Hopefully they provide lots of inspiration for you!
Cookie Cutter Match
Holiday themed cookie cutters are pretty easy to find during the holiday season. This is a fun activity you can make with the Halloween cookie cutters you might find around.
First trace 5 of the cookie cutters onto orange construction paper then I cut them out.
Once they are cut out, glue the orange paper onto black construction paper so that the shapes stand out even more. To use this tray, have your toddler match the cookie cutters to the cut out shapes.
This tray has a piece of orange construction paper with a line down the middle. It also has a bowl with two types of Halloween stickers. The idea is for your toddler to put the correct Halloween sticker on the correct side of the paper.
You can do the first few for your child so they can understand how to do the activity.
For this toddler tray, draw a simple Halloween-ish scene on a black piece of paper. A simple version of just a house, a tree and a moon. 😉
This tray also had strips of paper with ghosts drawn onto it, plus some scissors and a glue stick. Have your toddler cut a ghost off the strip and glue it onto the paper.
You can get this cute pumpkin coloring book from 3 Dinosaurs (Halloween Toddler Pack, page 15-17). To make it a little easier for your toddler, you can just put four colors in the book (red, orange, blue, and green). After you put the colors in put four markers (red, orange, blue, and green) on this tray.
Have your child color the pumpkins the correct color. This activity has the added bonus of giving your child some fine motor practice by removing the marker caps and putting them back on!
You can get the Halloween puzzles from 3 Dinosaurs (Halloween Toddler Pack, page 14) and have your toddler put them together.
You can also do a fun pumpkin garland. Hopefully your October has had as much Halloween fun as ours. 😉
I am doing your Halloween tot trays with my son, 20mths. So far we have done the cookie cutter matching (he nailed this on the first try), the colouring and the matching activity (he didn’t quite grasp the concept, will keep practising). I love your blog, how easy the posts are set up and my son has enjoyed the activities we have tried so far. The car tot tray was a huge hit
I’m so glad your son has enjoyed the activities. The car trays were a huge hit at our house, too! 🙂 A lot of times Smiley Man has a hard time with a tray at the beginning of the week, but he’ll get it by the end of the week. You’re right, it just takes practice.
