Two fun kids’ Halloween crafts you can try out with your kids this year.
Halloween is a fun time of year for both kids and adults alike. There are lots of fun kids Halloween crafts that are fun for the whole family to make. Creating crafts together is a great way to bond with your kids have some Halloween fun.
Edible Play Dough
This one is sure to be a hit with the younger set but can be fun for kids of any age. As they get older, they can get more creative with what they make from the dough.
- 3/4 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky will work)
- 3/4 cup dry milk powder
- 3/4 cup old-fashioned oats (not the quick cooking kind)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey
Get out a medium-sized bowl and put in the peanut butter, milk powder and oats. Mix it together well, you might need to use your hands. Add honey until you get a mixture that can easily be molded. You and your kids can make any kind of spooky treat with it, pumpkins, ghosts, bats, spiders. It can be stored in the refrigerator in a container for later use.
Ghost Wind Sock
This is one of those fun and easy kids Halloween crafts that you can make with items around the house.
- Large white plastic kitchen trash bag
- Black permanent marker
- Empty white plastic frosting container
- Wash and thoroughly dry the white plastic frosting container and lid. Get rid of the label.
- Make a small hole in the bottom of the frosting container. It should only be large enough to get the yarn through and should be in the middle of the bottom.
- Tie a large knot in the end of a piece of yarn. The knot should be big enough so that it does not pull through the hole in the bottom of the frosting container.
- Put the container on a table with the lid facing the table. Draw a face on one side or both sides of the container.
- Measure down 8 inches from the top of the white kitchen trash bag. Make a line and cut those 8 inches off.
- Measure down 3 inches from the bottom of the trash bag and make a line. Create 1 1/2 inch wide strips vertically on the bag. Cut the strips, making sure to stop at the 3 inch line you made.
- Put the bottom of the trash bag over the inside of the frosting container lid. The strips you made should hang over the side of the lid. Use the stapler to staple the middle of the bottom of the trash bag to the lid of the container.
- Secure the lid to the frosting container and your ghost wind sock is ready to hang up.
