With Halloween celebrations being a little different this year, we’ve put together some fun crafts to do with your little cubs to get everyone in the mood for October 31st! We know how busy everyone is, so we’ve made sure that these tried and tested Halloween crafts are super-easy, but lots of fun to do!
1) Shape Witch
Preschoolers can practice their scissor skills by cutting out the simple shapes that make up this colourful witch from Toddler Approved. It’s a fun and educational Halloween craft idea for toddlers.
2) Finger Paint Bats
Finger painting of any kind in our house usually ends in a blurry smeary mess! However this spooky activity from Crafty Morning means that smearing adds to the fun! This simple Halloween craft for toddlers will still look great, and half the fun is revealing the batty surprise at the end!
3) Monster Hands
Trace your little cub’s arm and fingers onto green paper or card to create this monster hand from Happy Hooligans. Cut it out, then have fun sticking on foam nails and use dried beans and seeds to make gory warts!
4) Cotton Wool Ghosts
Little Cubs will love this fun craft by Real Housemoms, and even little toddlers can join in too! Cotton wool makes it a fun sensory experience, and your finished ghosts make great decorations for hanging up on Halloween!
5) Halloween Paper Collage Art
Tearing paper and sticking it is always fun. You can use all kinds of canvases for this – from card to paper plates. Have lots of Halloween fun, making pumpkins, monsters and our favourite, spooky spiders!
You can use regular paper, construction paper or tissue paper for this activity. Have a look at some examples from Easy Peasy and Fun for some more spook-tacular ideas.
