For young kids, Halloween party is tons and tons of fun. For parents to see the fun their kids are having, it’s an indescribable experience. Before you get to Halloween, try to plan out the day as best as you can to keep things fun and going for you and your kids. Evidently, some Halloween crafts are more complicated than others. That said, there are plenty of Halloween crafts ideas for kids that vary in complexity. If you’re looking for ways to make things spooky sweet, here are some amazing Halloween crafts for kids.
If you happen to have some extra canning jars around the house, take two or three. Select different coloured transparent paper and wrap each jar in a different color. From there, find yourself some white shoelaces and carefully wrap the paper-covered jar mummy-style. Consider adding some eyes, a nose, or a smile to complete the package.
More cute than scary of course, handprint spiders are very easy to accomplish. All you need is some black construction paper and googly eyes. Take the black construction paper and have a child trace their hands on it using a pencil. Then, cut out the hands. Now, cut out a circle and place two googly eyes on the circle. Now, take the hands and glue them to the back of the circle. There you have it!
If you live nearby somewhere where you have rocks at your disposal, grab a few medium-sized round rocks and take an afternoon to paint them in orange. From there, you can use white paint to create different faces over your new ‘pumpkin rocks’. If you’re looking to avoid having the kids hopped up on sugar with nothing to do, arts and crafts ideas like these are a great way to divert attention on Halloween.
