Spooky Spiderweb Wreath

Halloween décor starts at the front door, which is why I ordered a wreath and wrapped it in glow-in-the-dark webbing. My kids love creepy-crawlies, so they helped by picking out some plastic spiders in different sizes for me to glue onto the custom wreath, and then I finished it off with a big ribbon.

  • Hampton Art 18" Grapevine Wreath
  • Halloween Super Glow Spider Web
  • Way To Celebrate Halloween Spider Confetti, 100 Count
  • Offray Orange Saddle Ribbon, 1 Each

Tricky Sensory Bin

A seasonal sensory bin gets kids thinking and using their verbal skills. I filled a large container with Halloween-themed objects meant to stimulate the senses, including a foam pumpkin and some plastic spiders. I had my kids cover their eyes and take turns figuring out what was inside the bin. They had a good giggle while they were guessing.

  • Way To Celebrate Halloween Large Party Tub, Orange, 18"
  • Way To Celebrate Sparkle Mini Foam Pumpkin
  • Way To Celebrate Halloween Glitter Spiders, Black, 8 Count

Kooky Scavenger Hunt

A themed scavenger hunt is perfect for entertaining little detectives. I used a white ink pen to write out a list of things for my kids to find, like a broom or something orange. This is a great way to boost observational skills and help kids become more aware of their surroundings. Don’t forget to add prizes to your list: Coloring books and sticker sheets are always big hits at our house. A Walmart+ membership saves me hours of time on supply runs for activities like this, which, as a busy mom, is the best benefit.

  • Sakura Gelly Roll Gel Pens, Opaque White, Fine Med & Bold Points 3 Pk
  • Crayola Trolls 2 Giant Coloring Pages, Trolls Gift for Kids, 18 Pages
  • Sticko Everyday Classic Smiley Emojis Stickers, 91 Piece

Many-Eyed Monster Cupcakes

This time of year is all about sweet treats, so I whipped up a batch of themed homemade cupcakes. I used our favorite mix and some colorful liners, and then the kids decorated them with bright frosting and delicious candy eyeballs. I let them make the mini monsters as scary or as silly as they wanted.

  • Duncan Hines Classic White Cake Mix 15.25 oz Box
  • Great Value Cupcake Liners, Pink/Yellow/White/Blue, 96 Count
  • Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Frosting, Vanilla, 16 Oz
  • Great Value Candy Eyeballs, 0.88 oz
