I know it isn’t October yet but I couldn’t wait. Halloween crafts are so fun! Take advantage of the excitement to inspire your kids to create. Make some bats and spiders. Play with pumpkins and oobleck. Prepare for a fun and safe Halloween!
This easy homemade oobleck from Pool Noodle Jack O Lantern has so many Halloween uses! The last time we made some Pork Chop and his friend colored theirs to look like zombie guts. In case you were wondering, zombie guts are dark, bright green that almost looks shiny black in some light.
Ashleigh from Simply Wright shared this Creepy button spiders garland. I want to make it because it is adorable and very Halloween-y. My husband’s extreme hatred of spiders has nothing to do with my desire to make it. At. All.
My kids love this science activity from There’s Just One Mommy: Do pumpkins sink or float?
However as fun as Halloween is, safety is always a concern. Make sure you read Halloween Safety Tips for Parents from Momless Mom.
Here are some of the crafts we made before Halloween last year.
Onto this week’s Party!
