I know, it's not even Labor Day yet & I'm posting about Halloween....

While I had some time at the beach, I starting brainstorming about Halloween crafts for the girls to make this year. I decided to try a few of them out before the business of "back to school" came & I forgot all of my ideas! So, if you're ready to start planning Halloween crafts for the little ones, here are 3 fun projects to try! 

3 Halloween Crafts for Kids

Here are the fun crafts!  They are in order from most difficult to easiest. 

1. Flower Pot Witch
Small clay flower pot
Black Paint
Green Paint
Wood ball with one flat side
Black Yarn
Craft "eyes"
Witch hat from craft store or black construction paper to make one

Directions: Have your child paint the clay pot black & the green wood ball green. Let them dry. 
Glue the flat part of the wood ball onto the bottom of the clay pot. Let that dry. Glue the eyes, yarn "hair" & hat onto the witch. Last, use some of the black paint to give the witch a "smile". 

2. Yarn Spider
Black yarn
Orange foam sheet (or orange construction paper)
Black foam sheet (or black construction paper)
Craft "eyes"

Directions: If your child can use scissors well, they can cut out a black circle & cut the yarn into 6 strips for the spider's legs. If you are crafting with a little one, cut everything ahead of time & let them assemble the spider. Once you have all the pieces, use the glue to make your spider! 
I used foam sheets, because they are sturdy & fun for little hands to craft with.

3. Toilet Paper Roll Pumpkins
Toilet paper or paper towel roll
White paper
Orange paint
Green crayon

Dip the toilet paper roll into the paint & use it as a stamp to make orange circles on the paper. Once dry, use the green crayon to make the pumpkin's stems.
