Halloween Cakes

I picked up some orange flavour frosting in asda the other day and a bunch of halloween decorations the kids loved making these spidery cone cakes. Having a cupcake in a cone makes it so much easier for little hands to handle, they get a lot less sticky. 
We also made these little fairy cakes using a white chocolate button and some icing pens. It’s all in the detail and the girls had so much fun decorating their spooky cakes.

Apple print pictures

Cut some apples in half and let the kids print some pictures with orange paint, they’ll make the perfect pumpkin shape. I cut out some little triangles for eyes and the girls added more detain with colouring pens, ta-da! Tip: if you use a big roll of paper you can create a make shift table cloth.

Creating Decoration

Creating decorations like banners and posters has never been easier! Using things like witch hat clipart and zombie clipart means you can design your own and print the kids can get involved with colouring in, cutting and sticking. Such a fun activity that will create great spooky decor!


I made some orange and green playdoh using the easiest play dough recipe ever! Tip: gel food colours work a lot better and will give a much more vibrant colour. I set the kids up wit some halloween style cookie cutters and they had lots of fun cutting out bats and spiders.

Biscuit decorating

I baked some little short bread biscuits and the kids went wild with icing pens! They loved this activity and it’s one of those activities that takes very little set up and supervision. You can also help finish off the tasty biscuits.

Pumpkin carving

For the obvious reasons the little ones can’t do the carving with knives but they can still get stuck in with the design and scooping out the insides! They’ll love getting their hands stuck in and getting all messy.

I hope you and your little ones have fun with these super simple Halloween activities for toddlers!
