DIY Halloween Craft Ideas
If you are like us we have a huge overflowing craft box of supplies to make any Halloween fun and we are looking to create something neat with these supplies and anything that we have around the house. We put together crafts ideas from No Time For Flash Cards, Thriving Home, Easy Preschool Craft, Eighteen25 and Toddler Approved to keep hands busy with any one of these fun and simple craft ideas with supplies that you may already have.
Age 10 and up, what you need: clean milk jugs, black sharpie, Christmas lights, craft knife
Age 9 and under, what you need: clean milk jugs, black construction paper, glow sticks, water
There are a couple different ways to make these ghostly glowing jugs and it depends on the age of your child. For the younger crowd, create the glowing effect with glow sticks and water and for the older, cut holes in the back of a jug and use a string of Christmas lights. Which ever route you take these will look great in your home or on your lawn.
All ages, what you need: cotton balls, a sheet of white paper and a sheet of black construction paper, glue, yarn
LOVE these guys! They are a lot of fun and simple for your toddler to create.
Witch into Shape
All ages, what you need: all different colors of construction paper, glue and scissors
One of our favorites for kiddos learning their shapes and colors is the shaped witch.
All ages, what you need: masking tape, a sheet of black construction paper and googly eyes
Tape masking tape to a sheet of black construction paper. Once you have the look your toddler wants cut out a gingerbread man look a like and glue on your eyes.
All ages, what you need: white plates, green marker, black marker, green and black paper
For a non messy approach opt for green marker to color your Frank and for the messy, go for with green finger paint. No matter which path you choose your kiddo will have a blast. Create a few Franks with different expressions so that there is company for your first.
All ages, what you need: white, orange and yellow construction paper, glue and scissors
Great for toddlers and adults because who doesn’t like to tear paper into small pieces. If your little one isn’t great with the scissors, you should cut out the candy corn shape while they start tearing pieces. For an extra step, make several and then string them on ribbon or yard to create a garland.
