Halloween craft activities made easy
Halloween craft activities, our top easy picks...
If you are like us, you love the idea of doing hands on play and craft activities with your kids. But sometimes it's so hard to think of activities, collect the equipment and find the time to craft with your little artists. Here are some quick and easy Halloween craft activities which you can adapt to items already found at home.
Rock Creepy Crawlies Halloween craft activities:
A fun and easy craft activity. And you can easily adapt it to take as little or as much time as you like. You can start with a walk and call it a rock hunt. Then give the rocks a bath, a bowl of warm soapy water and an old toothbrush does the trick, then let them dry thoroughly. If you are short on time, skip this and give the kids clean rocks instead. Provide the kids with an assortment of craft items such as google eyes, pipe cleaners, paint, glitter, and glue. Sit back with your coffee and enjoy watching your little ones creating creepy crawlies they come up with.
Cardboard roll craft:
Witches, ghosts, jack-o-lattern, bats, and monsters… the options are endless. All you need is toilet rolls or paper towel rolls. Cover them in paper, and let your little artists decorate. Google eyes add a real pop to these. Or there are printable sheets that can be purchased here.
Frankenstein pencil holder:
Using empty clean cans, I’m looking at your tinned tomato. Wash with warm soapy water cleaning the inside and removing the label. Make sure you dry thoroughly. Paint your can green or cover in green paper. Then draw on face. Easy. Or let your budding artist freestyle. Wrap your can in white paper and let them come up with their own Halloween creation.
Quick and easy ghost decorations. Place a tissue over a cork, foam ball or even those old yoghurt/ baby food lids. Tie it off with string under the lid creating a little ghost shape. Leave a little length for hanging your ghosts. Using a black marker draw on your ghostly face. We said this one would be easy.
Start off by making some biscuits such as gingerbread, or a great cheat is to buy milk arrowroot biscuits. Let your little ones go wild decorating with sprinkles, coloured icing, edible icing eyeballs and spooky lollies. Finally, there are also some great Halloween decorating kits around too that you could try… such as this one.
