Our top Halloween DIY decorations

As Halloween sneaks up on us, it’s time to get creative with your little one and turn your home into a tot-friendly trick or treating zone.  

1. Boo-tiful ghosts

Head outside and see if your little one can spot some ghostly-shaped leaves! Paint the leaves white and add three paint splodges, two for the eyes and one for the mouth.

2. Spooky stamps

Who knew apples were pumpkins in disguise? Create a ready-made pumpkin stamp by slicing an apple in half and painting it orange – simple!   

3. Eek-tastic spiders

Get messy with paint and spend the afternoon helping your little one hand-print spider shapes on a piece of paper or card.  Add two googley eyes and place your eight-legged friends around your home.

4. Go batty for upcycling

Save your cardboard toilet tubes from the recycling, and with the help of your baby bat, transform the tubes into creepy creatures, like ghosts, pumpkins, vampires, and mummies!

A few quick Halloween treats

Whether you have a tiny howler, a baby-teeth biter, or a creepy crawler, these deliciously wonderful treats will keep your little one out of trouble, bone-Appetit

Frightful fruit platter

Who knew fruit could look so spooky?! Ask your little one for a hand to help decorate oranges into pumpkins, Bananas into ghosts, kiwis into zombies, and apple slices into teethy mouths!

Spider biscuits

Halloween doesn’t need to be super scary! Try creating some cute spider biscuits with your tot, add some liquiose legs, and googly eyes to an Oreo biscuit and away you go! A tasty to treat to share when your neighbours come knocking!


Psst, make sure you have reusable wipes at the ready to clean up those messy faces and sticky hands!


Top 5 DIY Halloween outfit ideas for babies and toddlers

Scarily stuck on a Halloween outfit idea for your little one? These simple DIY costumes will fit snuggly over your little monster’s TotsBots bot and get them ready for this spooky time of year!

1. Spidey-Spider

For an easy spider outfit, grab some of your old black tights and fill them with soft fabric such as socks, towels, or foam to create spider legs. Attach the legs to one of your little one’s black tops and finish off the outfit with black trousers and gloves!

2. Did someone say Mummy?

For a simple but effective mummified look, dress your little one in white and loosely wrap a few bandages around your little one’s head, arms, and legs!

Match your little bubs outfit with a white EasyFit reusable nappy or Bamboozle Nappy Wrap to suit the mummy-look.

3. Ghostly surprise

One of the best Halloween costumes of all time (and one we’ve most probably all worn)!  Grab an old sheet or pillowcase and transform it into a boo-tastic ghost!   

4. Out of this world Robot

Create a fun and futuristic robot costume by upcycling your old cardboard boxes. For the robot’s body and head, decorate the boxes in silver paint and tin foil.
