Easter, Christmas Eve and I also put together a little one for him at Halloween. Some people seem to be really against the idea of gifting children with these types of baskets so often but I for one love them and to be honest, I'd rather he had a basket full of books and other seasonal themed items to enjoy rather than a load of chocolate and sweets - everything in moderation for us because the boy sure does love his choccie! You can see the Halloween basket I put together for him last year here, he really enjoyed it and that's reason enough for me to keep up with our basket traditions.
Spooky House which is a lift-the-tab flap book which is a lot of fun for toddlers to interact with whilst being read the story, Halloween ABC, which is another great book for toddlers. It goes through the abc by showing what everyone dressed up as for Halloween and what they saw when out trick or treating. The other two books are the ones from Dealz (Poundland if you're in the UK) and are called Spooky Spells and The Haunted House.

Natural History Museum Shop into his Halloween basket. We'll bake some cookies on Saturday afternoon and I can't wait to see his face when he sees the Triceratops and Brachiosaurus standing up and ready to eat. He loves dinosaurs! These were just £8 each.
I also included a vampire mask which he wore to his school Halloween party last week and the little pumpkin bag he made, I think he'll use this for his trick or treating - I'm hopefully taking him for the first time on Saturday night! He also made some candy apples in school and I put one into his Halloween basket. I haven't added anymore sweets as he'll have more than enough if he's going trick or treating.
Are you putting together a Halloween basket for your little ones this year?
