  1. I love everything on this list – they look so practical and uncomplicated, plus attractive. Though my grandson is only 2 and a little young for these, I can look ahead, right?

    1. Hi Beth! My oldest is actually only two, and we are able to do most of these together (though some require a little extra help from me haha). The best part about all of these is that they can be as simple or as complicated as you want!

    1. Hi Sydney! You can for sure tweak some of these for 1 year olds, like the paper plate jack-o-lantern! He can paint it with finger paints, or fat markers. You can also do the handprint zombies by dipping his hand in paint and making handprints, and then you drawing faces on them after they dry. We did things like that last year when my toddler was 1, too!

    1. I’m so glad you like them! It makes homeschooling a little bit more fun right now. I know I’ve been a little desperate for extra activities at our house too! haha

  2. What adorable ideas! Feeling like I didn’t do enough of this sort of thing when my kids were little. I just love those stained glass apples!

  3. Too cute. Not sure which one is my favorite – but the cotton ball ghosts starting out the parade was fun. Also like the stained-glass apple. Lots of fun – I see doing this with my grandkids. Thanks for sharing.
