There is no doubt that Halloween is one of those holidays that are more enjoyable to kids than adults. If you are making grand plans for this year’s celebration, it is important to factor your children in all this. There is no better way to do that than by having your children make simple Halloween-themed crafts.
Getting the kids busy during Halloween is never easy but with the 10 crafts below, you can actually do it!
Monster Party Hats
Although Halloween is meant to be spooky and scary, sometimes kids need something a little bit more colorful than that. Well, for a whimsical and exciting craft, have them make bold-colored monster party hats. This should keep them busy for a while even though it’s definitely something they can easily make.
If there is one thing you can display proudly from your kids, then this is it. All you need is kid-friendly paint and differently sized pumpkins. The pumpkins should be painted with all the rainbow colors and left to dry.
Tip: Although you are welcome to display the final rainbow pumpkins anywhere you want, they do very well outdoors.
DIY Ghost Balloons
Ghosts don’t have to be scary, they can be fun and whimsical too! Ghost balloons should definitely help you achieve this. Just purchase balloons, glue tissue paper and have the kids draw faces on them. You can even have them draw different impressions on the balloons. We are talking about things like silly, happy, worried, and so on.
Painted Pumpkin Owl
If you are not ready to allow your kids to carve out a few pumpkins, you can have them do the painting. It doesn’t take too much. It’s all about getting a large-sized pumpkin and painting it so that it looks like an owl. Let the kids do this the best way they know how.
Even though you can jump in to help, it’s always recommended to let them be as creative as they can on their own.
Festive Finger Puppets
