These 10 shows on YouTube are a perfect way to get your preschoolers excited for Halloween! There is everything from character favorites to fun craft ideas and science experiments . The best part, it is all free and easily accessible on your phone, tablet, or computer via the YouTube Kids app!
Maybe it is just a given, but we really love holidays around here. There is something about having small kids that just completely brings the magic of those moments back and Halloween is one of my kids favorites! From dressing up, to traditions like going to the pumpkin patch to hand pick their pumpkins and then having a family carving day, to of course dressing up for trick or treating, Halloween holds so many fun activities.
I love to take advantage of television shows to help my kids learn about the holidays and really ramp up the excitement, especially when I need a little break to cook or clean…. or just sit down for a minute… you preschool moms know what I mean! YouTube has a whole library of great Halloween themed shows that your kids will love. With everything from their favorite characters like Octonauts, Thomas, and Sesame Street, to fun crafts and even science experiments, this list is packed full of great Halloween themed shows for kids!
If you don’t have the YouTube app, make sure to download it on your phone or tablet! It is one of my absolute favorite apps. There is a special interface to make it easy to use for kids, extra security measures and screening, and peace of mind! It is an absolute must for family entertainment on the go.
Make sure to pin this list so that you can hop back here whenever you want something Halloween themed to entertain the kids, and if I missed any of your favorites, leave me a comment so I can add it to the list for others to enjoy!
