If you or your preschooler love arts and crafts, Halloween is possibly one of the best times of the year! Warm colors, goofy monsters, and, of course, pumpkins, make for an unlimited amount of crafts for you and your child to enjoy.
Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins!
Pumpkins are the classic item for autumn, probably because they make for a huge amount of Halloween crafts! Whether you’re carving a jack-o-lantern face onto one, or finger painting a whole pumpkin patch, you can create pumpkins to your heart’s content.
Black foam, googly eyes, and some pipe cleaners are all you need for this simple but adorable craft. Cut out the shape of a black kitty face and add some googly eyes and pipe cleaner whiskers to decorate the house with some furry friends.
Sometimes, the best crafts are the ones you can eat too! There’s no wrong way to create a marshmallow ghost. Make one big one with lots of tiny little marshmallows, or use icing to put silly faces on big fat marshmallows. Either way, your children will love eating their ghostly creation after you’re done.
Have your child pick out any color of paper plate and glue eight pipe cleaners to it—four on each side. Add googly eyes—as many as you want —and some string for some crazy spider decorations to hang around the house!
