Witches - Toddler crafts, activities and resources

Witches don't need to be scary, you can still have witch fun with young toddlers! Witches aren't just for Halloween either, you can easily dress up as a witch to cast spells and make potions and there are lots of fun witch crafts and activities that you can do with toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Witch crafts

Make a really simple witches hat from a paper plate and an old party hat or cone from cardboard.

Use this printable witch to make a witch wall decoration.

Make a miniature cauldron from a jam jar or small plastic tub.

Use a wooden spoon to make a simple wooden spoon witch puppet.

Witch activities

Make up some magic potions. Find a large container for the cauldron then make a potion using things from around the kitchen. Or even better in the garden with water, mud, grass, leaves, flowers and so on. If you want to end up with something edible, make some witch's soup and come up with suitable magic names for the ingredients.

Bake some witches cauldron cakes with green jelly.
