If your kids are anything like my nieces, nephews and godkids, they can’t resist trying to play with the Halloween decorations! They love the little figurines and decorative haunted houses! This year I thought that instead of having a daily decor battle we could make some fun Halloween projects that they can play with after creating! I found 6 Ideas for Halloween Puppet Play that I can’t wait to try with my nieces, nephews and godkids and I have a feeling you are going to love a few of these ideas too for hands on play this Halloween.
