Baby’s First Halloween: Frights & Fun for all the Family

It’s that time of year again mamas – The evenings are getting darker, there’s an eerie chill in the air, and there’s something strange in your neighborhood – time to call Ghostbusters – Halloween is here! This spooky holiday doesn’t have to be frightening for the little ones – in fact, it can be a tonne of fun, and we’re here to help! We’ve gathered the best ideas and inspiration from around the web to help you and your little monsters have fun and frights this Halloween!

 To decorate

With littlies around it may be an idea to save the really creepy, gruesome décor for when they’re a little older. But there’s still plenty of fun to be had! You and the kids could try your hand at decorating ‘no-carve pumpkins’ like these by Emily at Joyful Abode. Or you could take them out for a nature walk to collect leaves, then make these gorgeous fall leaf lanterns that we found on RedTedArt.


To do

If your monster is too little for trick or treating, why not bring Halloween to your home and throw a baby Halloween party! Liska from the Adventure in a Box blog has some great ideas for fun activities that even the littlest of hands can get stuck into. And we can’t get enough of this DIY gooey Halloween slime for sensory play (we’re sure this would go down well with the not-so-little kids too!)


To eat

Halloween & Candy practically go hand in hand, so we love these Monster Marshmallow Pops from Katie on her Made to Be a Momma blog. And for a few fun healthier options, check out Samantha’s suggestions on Crafty Texas Girls.


To dress your baby

Your baby monsters may be too young for trick or treating, but we’ll bet they’ll enjoy dressing up and helping you to answer the door and give out candy to the bigger kids! Baby Harry Potter, 80’s aerobics instructor, the monopoly man, a taco?!?! Just a few of our favorites from’s selection of baby costumes!


And for your toddler monsters, we love this idea from viral YouTube sensation Glowy Zoey!


To dress your bump

And if you’re heading out to a Halloween party of your own, check out these great DIY maternity costume ideas from Or for an outfit that’s more chic than Halloween freak, you could accessorize a little black maternity dress with a cute witch’s hat or cat ears. We think our Striped Baby Doll Maternity Dress or the Sheer Polka Dot Sleeve Maternity Dress would be perfect!
