Halloween is a holiday that always makes me a bit nervous now that I am a mom. My girls are really sensitive to spooky and scary things, putting it mildly they do not like it. As a mom I want to protect my kids and help them to feel comfortable and so far we have been able to avoid the gruesome and spooky and stick to the fun parts of Halloween. To my girls Halloween is an excuse to wear your princess dress up clothes outside and bonus people give you candy for playing dress up, I want to keep it that way as long as possible.
Poppy Cat is a preschool show that we recently discovered and I always love when I can find Halloween episodes on preschool shows to keep the holiday fun for my little ones. October 25th Poppy Cat and the Halloween Woods will premier and it is super cute. My almost 3 year old and I watched it already and she loved it, I loved that it addressed that Halloween is scary for some but that doesn’t have to ruin it. As we speak my daughter is watching a Poppy Cat marathon on Netflix as we just realized it is available there too, she is a big fan!
After watching the Poppy Cat and the Halloween Woods episode my daughter and I made this adorable Handprint Pumpkin Patch craft, super cute and not scary at all! This craft is a bit messy since it involves paint, but fun.
Handprint Pumpkin Patch Preschool Craft:
- Have your child make a fist then have them dip the side into orange paint, use the side of the fist like a stamp to make orange pumpkins. For a less messy version you can paint the child’s fist for them.
- Dip the thumb in green paint for the stem.
- For the smaller pumpkins use the child’s thumb print for the pumpkin and paint a stem with a a thin brush.
These were super easy to make and lots of fun for a preschool craft. So tonight as your child talks about the new Poppy Cat Halloween show premiering tomorrow you can make fun not spooky Handprint Pumpkin Patches.
The second season of Poppy Cat will premiere with a mini-marathon airing from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 25 and then begins its regular schedule on the network that same evening, with episodes slated to air seven days a week at 7:00 pm. The series also airs Saturday mornings on the NBC Kids block, which is programmed by Sprout.
