With preschoolers, I always liked to have Montessori-inspired Halloween activity trays available on the shelves for a couple of weeks before Halloween. Both as a Montessori teacher and homeschool mom, I made sure the activities were fun, non-scary, and included activities in a number of curriculum areas.
A lot of bloggers today have the same idea. There are some wonderful resources around the blogosphere!
