Crafty fun ...
Halloween is a time for trick or treating; costume parties and carving pumpkins; a time for apple bobbing and ghost stories; but most importantly it is a time to celebrate the spookier things in life with fun craft activities like these.
What do your kids think monsters look like? With this cute Glitter Foam Monsters activity from Crafts by Amanda the possibilities are endless. The best part is, there is no right or wrong way to make your monster, just have fun. Other monster craft activities include Colourful Pasta Monster, Monster Treat Bags and Monster Party Hats.
From monsters to pumpkins, let's not forget bats and ghosts with this great DIY: Halloween Egg Carton Bats and Leaf Ghosts from Happy Clippings. Or perhaps try this Easy Texture Collage Ghost from No Time For Flash Cards. Lastly, this Ghost Feet activity is a fun craft that doubles as a keepsake from Be Different, Act Normal.
