Double, double, toil and trouble! Halloween is nearly here and with it the opportunity to be really creative with some fun and scary craft activities.
If you’re having a party, get the kids help you make the decorations – it’s much more fun (and cheaper!) than going to the shops to buy some and they’ll be totally unique. From spooky ghosts with smoky trails to flickering pumpkin lanterns and witches’ hats to gory eyeballs, we’ve got plenty of ideas and step-by-step guides to make your Halloween go with a terrifying BANG.
Make a whole family of earbud skeletons with a pile of scary bones. And is that blood splattered about the place?
Get your little monsters to make these – there’s no messy pumpkin to carve, just paint, sticky tape, jam jars and toilet roll and a spooky flickering light to welcome your trick or treaters.
If you’re short of cash this Halloween but want to make some fun decorations, these ghastly ghouls can be found in the park! All you need are some dried leaves, white paint and a black marker pen. Oh and a wicked imagination…
Are you being watched? Send a chill down your guests’ spines with bloodshot eyeballs following their every move.
Catch something out of the corner of your
eye, but when you look there’s nothing there? Well Harry our Halloween ghost might not be able to disappear, but he’ll certainly give you the spooks. BOO!
A house that’s crawling with spiders? Ewwwwwwww. Hang on, though – they’re edible. Edible spiders. Ewwwwwwww.
Watch out for the vampire bat flapping around your head! He’s come to steal your blood for his dinner. Don’t be scared, though. This little fella is made out of a sock!
What a wicked old witch our Wanda is. Perhaps we should’ve called her Spoona, as that’s what she’s made out of, but that’s not quite as Halloweeny, is it?
What are your kids going to be collecting all their treats in? This pumpkin won’t be the only one smiling if you help them make their very own Halloween pumpkin bag.
Everyone has a coat hanger at home so turn one of yours into a brilliant Halloween mobile – perfect for a child’s bedroom or outdoor decoration.
