I love Halloween! Every year I get so excited to pull out my decorations, and now that my son is old enough to understand what’s going on things have gotten even more exciting. This week we put out my collection of pumpkins, skeletons and spiderwebs and he couldn’t stop talking about it. I want to incorporate as much spooky fun as I can this month, leading up to the big Halloween night. We’ve already started some fun and easy DIY Halloween crafts for kids and decorations, so I thought I’d share some of my ideas.
I’m all for any Halloween crafts that involve a treat too, so this was a good one. I got the idea from Allie at No Time for Flashcards and put my own spin on it. I drew a ghost shape with a white crayon on black construction paper, then helped my three-year-old put a glue dot on marshmallows one by one and stick each one along the outline. (We definitely ate a few marshmallows during our crafting, but he didn’t go as hog wild as I thought he would — and we talked about only eating marshmallows without glue on them. ) If you’re not into the sugar consumption, you could easily do this craft with cotton balls instead.
