Using construction paper, your favorite coloring utensils, and some string, you can easily transform your space from simple to shriek-tastic for your upcoming Halloween party! Each bat can be uniquely drawn and decorated, then watch them take flight as you string them together and hang them up to screech and soar across the room.
2. Make a Worry Monster
Just because it’s spooky season and it’s time for fall festivities, doesn’t mean your worries have magically disappeared. Wash away those seasonal scaries with this adorable Halloween worry monster craft! Grab a cardboard box and some crafting supplies to spook off all your tears and fears.
3. Sculpt Your Own Halloween Costume
Using play doh or clay, you can create your own custom Halloween costume statue to set out year after year. It can be inspired by your costume this year, a costume from years past, or a costume design you dream of wearing one day. The full October moon is the limit. Don’t mind the werewolves howling!
4. Draw a Jack-o-Lantern
Imagine the jack-o-lantern of your dreams! Now, bring it to life in a drawing with this pumpkin craft. You can follow along with our step by step drawing tutorial or add scary creative details of your own. A spooky cat? A witch on a broomstick? A funny face? What haunting image will you make?
5. Sculpt a Jack-o-Lantern
Using your jack-o-lantern drawing or a brand new design, create a pumpkin jack-o-lantern that is sure to last way longer than the carved one sitting on your front porch. How will you bring your spooky creation to life this year?
6. Draw a Halloween Cat
MEOW! Sharpen your claws as you gather your drawing and coloring utensils to create an eerie scene featuring a mysterious (and totally adorable) Halloween themed black cat. Don’t forget to give your drawing your own special hair-raising details.
7. Make a Spooky Eyed Vampire
Open your craft drawer and bring out the googly eyes or draw your own eyes to create a spook-tacular animated vampire craft to surprise and delight your friends with this eyeball moving vampire. Make it super by adding your own scary details, attaching your vampire portrait to a craft stick and using it as a puppet.
8. Draw a Spider and a Web
Spin yourself some detailed spider webs and creeping, crawling spiders with this easy step by step spider web drawing tutorial. This is a craft you’re sure to get stuck on…or maybe it’ll get stuck on you!
These activities, from drawing to sculpting to crafting, provide creative opportunities for kids to use their imaginations to design, create, and express themselves while celebrating Halloween. Create Halloween party favors and haunted decorations for your upcoming spooktacular extravaganza or for around your home. Having special handmade creations on display supports your child’s creativity and imagination and as they make, they are also problem-solving and finding their sense of self.
