At Ardsley Day Care of Day Care Centers, Inc. in Glenside, Pennsylvania they had a Halloween-themed day full of Fall leaves, Pumpkins, Sensory Bins, and more!
Here are eight of the activities they did which can serve as inspiration for your own fun outdoor Halloween activities you can do with your classroom of toddlers and/or preschoolers!
Day Care Centers, Inc. (Ardsley Day Care)
Outdoor Halloween Party Games
Students can enjoy gathering-up colorful leaves in their buckets via this dump-and-fill activity!
Sensory bins full of seeds, acorns, or other things that we see all around the ground during the Fall are a great idea!
Witch Ring Toss
This activity involves taking pointy witch hats and throwing rings at them to see how many you can get to loop-around the hats!
For this activity students don’t throw actual pointy-darts, they can toss Velcro ones that will stick to a pretend spider-web!
Witch’s Cauldron Toss
A bucket made to look like a toxic witch’s cauldron can be a clever activity to throw balls, bean bags, or anything else that should go into the, “Cauldron.”
You don’t have to take your students to a big pumpkin patch for them to be able to pick-out a pumpkin, simply provide a wide-range of pumpkins spread around a small open space! Let the students pick which pumpkin they like the most and then they get to keep it!
Mystery Sensory Bin (Cow)
Mystery sensory bins where the student don’t see what they are actually touching can be very fun and full of Halloween-themed frights! They also can be less spooky and more silly like this mystery sensory bin that simulates touching a cow’s udders.
Jack O’ Lantern Bean Bag Toss
To do this activity students throw bean bags in the smiling open mouths of the Jack O’ Lanterns!
