Halloween Crafts For Toddlers

Halloween has always been a favourite time of year for me. Every year my whole family would be together for the much loved Trick or Treating and dressing up. Now that I have children of my own I really want to carry on the tradition and try to make Halloween even more of a special time with exciting things planned. Amelia is getting really into ‘sticking & gluing’ so an afternoon of Halloween crafts was certainly on the cards for us!

I made sure everything was ready before she came out into the kitchen so she wouldn’t get too bored waiting. Additionally I decided on a few easy crafts that weren’t too time consuming for A’s 2 year old brain. She’s gotten a lot better when it comes to her attention span – I guess this just develops with age – but still it’s lovely to be able to get more creative with her.

Cotton Ghosts

What you need:

 

  • White card
  • Ghost template (above/below
  • Cotton wool balls
  • Googly eyes
  • PVA glue

First you need to draw a ghost outline on the card. I found a cute ghost shape on the internet and copied that.

Cut out the ghost shape then cover it in PVA glue.

To make these crafts into cool decorations you could punch a hold at the top of each and use some ribbon or string to dangle the ghost from the ceiling, doorframe or curtain rail!

I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into some more themed crafts with Bonfire night and Christmas coming up it’s the perfect time! Nearer the time I’m hoping Max will be able to get more involved with the whole crafty thing but at the minute all he does it eat everything he gets his hands on.

Have you been doing any Halloween crafts? Do you enjoy themed crafts with your children?
