The Chirping Moms: Halloween Projects for the Kids

Halloween Projects for the Kids

 While we were decorating for Halloween this week, the girls & I made 2 fun crafts. The first is a hanging ghost. Maggie actually sat & glued all of the cotton balls on herself & was so excited her ghost could "fly" when it dried.
Card stock cut into a ghost shape
Black paper
Cotton balls
hole puncher
Yarn or string
We made each ghost different: The first, I gave Maggie a bowl of glue & she dipped each cotton ball in the glue & stuck it onto the ghost. The 2nd I covered the ghost in glue & she just stuck the cotton balls all over it. Both were easy, but the 2nd way is just a little faster. 
Then, cut eyes & mouth out of black paper & glue on. When it dries punch holes & hang with yarn or string. 

Hand Print Spiders
The next craft I did with both girls. We made handprint spiders. I love all of the cute handprint craft ideas on Pinterest. These came out nice on canvas, but you could do them on paper too. Both girls laughed the whole time their hands "made spiders".
