3 fun Halloween crafts
Are you looking for a fun Halloween craft to do with your kids? Here are three ways you can spark their creativity.
- Pumpkin seed collage
This craft will allow you to use up your leftover pumpkin seeds. You’ll also need paint, paintbrushes, glue, glitter and a sheet of paper. Start by painting the seeds different colors. Then, ask your children to paint a Halloween-themed picture, such as a bat, a haunted house or a witch, and decorate it with the colorful pumpkin seeds. Lastly, your children can top off their creations with glue and glitter.
- Hand monsters
Gather construction paper, scissors, glitter, glue, googly eyes and any other craft materials you have on hand. Help your kids trace the outline of their hand onto the paper and cut it out. They can then decorate the cutout of their hand so that it looks like a monster.
- Glow-in-the-dark pumpkins
Instead of carving your pumpkin, paint it with neon glow-in-the-dark paint. You can paint the entire pumpkin one color, and then add shapes and designs using a different color. Finish it off by using a marker to draw eyes, a nose and a mouth.
These easy craft ideas can be enjoyed by kids of all ages. And if you don’t have the required materials lying around your house, you can take a fun family trip to the local craft store.
