Halloween for me always seems to be the hardest to do with a toddler. So many activities are too scary for them, and my son’s legs are too small for him to gather all the candy I need. So I decide to research some Toddler/Preschool age activities to do in the Fraser Valley for those parents who also find this season to be hard!
You may or may not have seen my previous post about the MUST DO toddler friendly fall activities, so I will not go into much detail about the pumpkin patches or corn maze. Feel free to see that post here.
