Halloween Craft Fun


The girls and I took advantage of a day off from school last week to spend some time getting ready for Halloween. Here are a few of our creations.

Paper-Strip Jack-O-Lanterns (idea from Let's Explore)

Haunted Halloween House (idea from No Time for Flashcards)
We made ours out of regular felt, and we didn't bother with the magnets.

A Halloween Story
Dictated and Ilustrated by the Ant Bug

We found some great Halloween themed templates on Place to Bloom (black cat, owl, witch, bats, spider, etc). There are lots of different ways that these templates could be used with a little creative thinking.

Googley Eyed Blobs (idea from Make and Takes)
One suggestion: If you try this, don't use corn syrup! Water with food coloring in a jar works just as well and it is far less messy. My girls had fun experimenting with different color combinations.

We also made the same paper ghost garlands we made last year.

Here are a few more we haven't had time to try yet, but they look like fun:
