“Hoppy” Halloween!

Halloween is one of Miffy’s favorite times of year. There are so many fun things to do between finding the perfect costume, eating sweet treats and crafting hilarious jokes. No matter how you’re celebrating Halloween this year, Miffy hopes it’s your best one yet!

Try the activities below and you’re bound to have a “hoppy” Halloween:

  1. Dress up Like Miffy

If you want to dress up like your favorite little white bunny, you’re in luck! Craft bunny ears out of paper, put on a blue dress and you’re ready to hop around town. See Miffy dress up in costume in the episode Miffy at a Costume Party.

2. Funny Bunny Jokes

In many places around the country, kids have to tell jokes before they’re given a piece of candy while trick or treating. Try some of the jokes below to get treat givers giggling.

Q: How many hairs are there in a rabbit’s tail?

A: Zero – they’re all on the outside.

Q: What do you name a rabbit who wears a kilt?

A: Hopscotch.

Q: What did the bunny say to his carrot?

A: Been nice gnawing you…

3. Fun Candy Games

The first piece of candy always tastes great, but after 5 or 6 pieces it starts to not taste so good anymore. Miffy has some fun games she plays with her candy after she’s done snacking.

  • Candy Tic Tac Toe – This is a classic game with a fun twist. Choose 5 pieces of the same type of candy from your basket and have your partner do the same with a flavor that is different from yours. Then, take a piece of white cardstock paper and draw 2 lines down and 2 lines across with a marker and start filling it in with candy!
  • Chopstick Pick Up Game – Put a paper plate on the table with some candies on it. Grab chopsticks. Have a parent set a timer and see how many candies you can pick up and place on another plate in one minute. The candy you move to the next plate is your prize!
  • Guess How Many Candies are in the Jar – Do your parents put your candy away so you can’t eat it all at once? Try putting it all in a glass jar but make sure a parent counts it first. If you have siblings, try combining your candy. Guess how many candies you think are in the jar. Have your parent write down everyone in the family’s names and numbers guessed on a sheet of paper. Whoever guessed the number closest to the actual amount of candies in the jar wins. They get to choose the first piece to eat.
