Halloween Art Projects For
Fall is just around the corner, and with the cooler weather comes more inside
time for the little ones. Naturally, they're going to need something fun and
creative to keep them busy. Help your kids prepare for Halloween by constructing
these adorable craft projects! They're easy and fun to make and the kiddos will
love displaying them for the holiday.
Egg Carton Spiders
What you will need:
Cardboard egg carton
Something to poke small holes
White plastic trash bags
Cut the egg cups out of a cardboard egg carton. Cut pipe cleaners into 3 inch
sections. To make each spider, poke four pipe cleaners through each cup
sideways. Bend the ends to look like eight spider legs. Paint the spiders black
or in any wildly creative way you want! After the paint has dried, attach a
length of elastic thread to the middle of each spider. Have fun holding your
thread and bouncing your scary spider up and down as you take it for a walk!
Plastic Bag Ghost
What you'll need:
Blow up/inflate the balloons and cover each one with a trash bag. With the
string, gather and tie each bag under the balloon to make a head. Using your
markers, draw a spooky face on the trash bag. Be as creative as you can-make a
scary face or a funny face. Whatever you want! Attach a piece of string to the
top of your ghosts and display them all around your house and yard.
