Let’s make this the happiest Halloween.
Treats and games and make-believe.
We’ll have some fun when the moon shines bright.
It’s Halloween night tonight.

I got this song stuck in my head again because it’s almost —> Halloween. And because I love Halloween so much, I’m going to mix Halloween with Niko’s play activities.

Our Halloween month-long celebration started with sorting shapes.


What’s exciting about this activity? The monsters. Niko likes monsters and ghosts and bats and spiders, too.

Colored papers. I used colored papers in Halloween colors such as black, orange, green and red.
White papers for the small shapes and also for the eyes and fangs.
Pots. I have unused pots laying around, but you can use any container.
Hot glue gun and sticks

Create the shape monsters according to your preference. They can look funny, silly or really, really scary.
We did the four basic shapes, so Niko will not be confused with so many. 🤣
When making the monster face, don’t forget to cut a small whole at the bottom for the mouth. Attach the eyes and fangs accordingly. 😀
For the monster food, I used white papers and cut them into small shapes that match our monsters.

I used the white paper for the monster food instead of the colors that match the monsters because Niko is already familiar with color sorting and it would be easier for him to put them in the proper color. With the white paper, he would learn to compare and identify the correct shape.

Every time he picked a shape, I would tell him the shape’s name, he would repeat it and then put it in the monster mouth.

I live in an enchanted forest at the end of a rainbow. I have a little window in my room where I can see unicorns playing in the grass field at day and magical fairies dancing under the silvery moon at night.


  1. Thank you, Sam. He enjoyed playing with the monsters, so we saved them for next time.

Let me know what you think 🐰
