Halloween Craft Ideas for Kids

Halloween Craft Ideas for Kids

Yep, Halloween is coming guys and we need to prepare for it. But carving a pumpkin and creating a complex Halloween costume is a little difficult for our young kids.  While creating the costume may be mom’s job there are still plenty of thing your kids can do to get in the spirit of the holiday.  Halloween is a favorite holiday for kids, aside from getting loads of candies and treats it fun to make and wear a costume.  Here are some things that your little ones can do to have fun getting ready for Halloween.

Walkie-talkie pumpkin

Assuming an adult has already carved a pumpkin in shape already, you can easily put a little walkie-talkie in there. Can you imagine what you can do with it? Put the pumpkin near the pavement and SHOUT to every person that comes by! You can also try a spooky laugh to give them the chills down their spines too! Probably the best idea to try out for Halloween.  Just don’t try doing that to old people!

Paint a pumpkin

Featuring the classic, spooky-scary pumpkins again, painting a pumpkin is actually easier than trying to carve a pumpkin. Simply choose a pumpkin that has a mostly even surface, clean it, and then apply acrylic paint. It could help if you cut the shape you want to paint on paper with scissors. That way you will not make mistakes and you will get exactly the result you want.

Easy as that!

Just make sure you put some newspapers below the pumpkin and around so that your things stay the same color!

Parchment paper necklace

It’s simple and easy to make a necklace for Halloween. Get some parchment paper and draw the outlines of what you want to make with white glue. Let it dry for a moment and then fill in the inside of the outline with more white glue. Let it dry for 1-2 days and then you can take your creations! You can paint them with a marker after you’re done and then make some holes on top so that you can put a string through.

You can make anything you like with this idea, but it’s best to create ghosts because the parchment paper will be semi-transparent and it would make it look more real. Draw some faces on them, too!

So, you can easily see that you don’t need a lot of things to make something you want for Halloween. Even having some parchment paper and a bit of glue is enough to give your kids the some fun for an afternoon.
