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.
Make a really simple witches hat from a paper plate and an old party hat or cone from cardboard.
Make some Hama bead witches. They are easy to make by adapting the princess shaped pegboard, and you can use the finished witches to make a spooky display for Halloween, perhaps in the front window to greet trick or treaters.
Use this printable witch to make a witch wall decoration, you could cut it out and create a spooky background to stick it on.
Use a wooden spoon to make a simple wooden spoon witch puppet.
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.
