• Toddler Halloween Activities/ Party Ideas

    0 comments / Posted on by Evelyn Merchant

    Halloween celebrations are easy to make it fun for everyone. Halloween parties are often held amidst decorations to a haunted house theme.

    Little ones prepare for the haul bags that you deliver out after the birthday party, which is why you need to supply them with goodies that can help them never forget the fantastic time they had at the party. Put Barbie products and sweets in the party bags if you had a Barbie-themed party. Children's parties usually consist of fun party games, whereas adult ones are more about dancing, chatting, drinking and socializing.

    Decorations

    Decorations are a very crucial aspect for any Halloween costume party since they set the creepy and spooky mood of your gathering. Furnish your party room with magic wands, sparkly dust for casting charms and spells, and anything else that reminds you of wizards, witches, and magic.

    In short, a Halloween party is a Halloween themed party - and everyone is required to be in the freakiest best. Halloween festivities are one of the ideal ways to indulge in the Halloween season. Some party ideas or activities for toddler Halloween parties include:

    A Ghost Hunting

    Cover a round item using tissues and secure it using a black ribbon to mold it to appear like a ghost. Stash the ghosts securely around the home or in the yard and have the children go on a quest for them. Tiny objects that can be made use of for this consist of:

    Lollipops (Dum Dums can be used because they are small).

    mini yo-yos.

    mini Playdohs.

    bouncy eyeballs.

    plastic spiders.

    Actually, for this toddler Halloween activity, whatever you can create appear like a ghost will do the job.

    Hit The Witch

    Draw about two witches with two other drawings on a board. Have children stand close enough to the board to be able to hit it accurately with a wet sponge. Tell the children to take turns throwing wet sponges at the witch to try and "melt" her away. Be sure the children are squeezing out to the sponges before throwing.

    Decorate Trick Or Treat Bags.

    If the kids are going on a ghost hunt, they'll require something to hold their spoils in. Why not get them produce their own personal small trick-or-treat totes? Materials you'll need consist of:.

    little kraft paper sacks.

    Halloween crayons (the little ones can also take these home as a Halloween party gift).

    self-adhesive Halloween foam stickers consisting of foam eyeballs.

    Let the kids draw scary objects anywhere on their bags. Give them the freedom to choose colors they like and go ‘crazy’ coloring the bags. Finally, ask them to stick the self-adhesive foam stickers as eyes on their drawings.

    Ball Throw.

    A carved pumpkin with a big opening on a single side opens up options for numerous various other toddler Halloween activities. If your child happens to have a toy golf set and nerf or foam ball, you might get kids attempt to strike the ball into the pumpkin. You will probably require a few weightiness in the pumpkin's bottom to hold it upright on impact.

    Or, simply grab some ping pong balls and let the kids toss them in for a prize. A 13 ″ diorama craft pumpkins can be bought from most stores if you don't feel like carving a pumpkin for this purpose.

    Mummy Dress up. Let the children wrap each other in toilet paper and pretend to be a mummy. Keep an eye out for them to prevent them bumping into each other or one of them getting hurt.

    Pass The Vampire Bat

    Supplies: one straw for each child/ bat shapes cut out of tissue paper. Pass the tissue bats down the line, teammate to teammate, by exhaling and inhaling on the straw to hang onto or release the ornament. The first team to successfully pass the bats up and down the line wins!

    Other than these toddler Halloween games and activities, I think you can just let them run around and play while the adults relax.

  • Toddler Halloween Safety Tips

    0 comments / Posted on by Evelyn Merchant

    It is no doubt a little angel who wears the costume of a fairy and looks very beautiful and makes the day for the parents, but it is the duty of the parents to ensure that the little kid is comfortable and does not feel suffocated in the costume. Little kids are sensitive and you can not expect them to wear scary costumes as they themselves might get frightened upon seeing other kids wearing these costumes. Ensuring good Toddler Halloween Safety Tips will help make your toddlers’ Halloween accident-free.

    The day is also an occasion when the toddlers and kids wear various costumes which are sometimes scary and very funny. Older children, who have some experience from their previous Halloween, are eager to make their little brothers and sisters wear new costumes which are icing on the cake as far as these toddlers are concerned.

    Costume Tips

    Ensure certain costumes fit adequately and won't pull on the floor, causing a stumbling threat.

    Stick a couple of bits of reflective tape on every costume, so they're more convenient to see in the night. This tape is attainable at numerous accessory, sporting products, and bike shops.

    Talk to your child to bring a torch, and to make use of it when wandering in the night.

    Don't let your child put on costume footwears (or a father and mother's footwear).

    Look for add-ons that are comfy, adjustable and don't present a risk to others.

    Decide on face makeup and paint, instead of a mask, which can limit eyesight.

    Always stay away from toddler costumes that are made from a material that is inflammable as there are bonfires usually on Halloween. Give him some moments of happiness as he is most happy when he wears a costume that makes him the center of attraction around the house.

    Takeaway

    Toddlers have some favorite characters that they watch on TV and in comics such as Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Superman, Spiderman, Ninja Hattori and many other cartoon characters. When they see them on TV and tend to get involved in the fantasy world of these cartoons, they get excited. These costumes are easily available in the market and they come in all sizes and shapes so it would not be difficult to find one that fits well and looks beautiful on your toddler.

  • Relaxation Strategies for Toddler's Bedtime

    0 comments / Posted on by Evelyn Merchant

     Toddlers have the energy of four adults put together. They need relaxation techniques or strategies to help them calm down to enable them to go to sleep.Even when it is bedtime, they are still active and refuse to go to bed. According to  NYU LAGONE HEALTH, children need about 8 hours of sleep up to about age 10.

    I remember on a camping trip my sister-in-law said she wished she had energy like a toddler, as she watched the kids tirelessly jumped from one activity to another. It might seem like your young child does absolutely nothing but play all day, he's working really difficult and by no ways is his life hassle-free. All this activity is bound to make for an exhausted young child.

     If you find his regular play or favorite activities are irritating him, he's most likely overtired and in need of peaceful and restorative sleep. Physical exhaustion, enjoyment, and tension build up till he does not understand he's tired. It is up to you as a parent to assist him to figure out how to stop and rest. You can help make the shift from busy, active, energetic day to tranquil, and peaceful night by luring him to sleep with quiet activities at night after supper. Coloring a photo, taking a seat and watching a favorite, but quiet, video, checking out books, singing, quiet play at bath time, or singing lullabies together helps your toddler detach and begin winding down.

     If this is done within the structure of a constant bedtime routine, your young child will come to associate these activities with bedtime and discover them soothing and he'll have the ability to quickly acknowledge when bedtime takes place.It's also important to unwind with your toddler. If he sees you busy in the cooking area cleansing, outside gardening, or doing other hectic activities in the evenings, he'll be likely to want to do the very same, making the bedtime routine frustrating for everyone involved.

     

     After the toddler has laid down, parents can unwind with something soothing like reading a book, watching movies or catching up on work on the computer. There should not be unnecessary hassling and bustling around the house which will keep the toddler awake. He/she might be curious and would want to know what is making the noise, therefore getting out of bed.

    Toddlers enjoy cuddling, whether with their parents or toys. Parents can get their toddlers teddy bears or night lights to keep them company while they sleep. Lullabies also help to soothe and calm them before they finally fall asleep.
