Halloween craft ideas: fiendishly fun ideas for mini monsters



Halloween is just around the spooky corner, and we're always looking for an excuse to break out the art supplies and get busy with googly eyes, so we'll definitely have a whole lotta kooky kinda fun whipping up these fun Halloween crafts with our mini monsters.


1. Mason jar mummies


You'll be hailed the best mummy in town when you get busy with the kids making those frighteningly cool mason jar mummies pictured above! It All Started With Paint is where the 'how' is at.


2. Toilet roll spider

It's pretty clear how much we love a loo roll craft here at London for Kidz HQ, so we can't wait to whip out the pipe cleaners and cardboard rolls to make these too-cute-to-be scary spiders by Molly Moo Craft.

We had a whole lotta skele-fun recently throwing this cotton bud skeleton together. No instructions needed: The foot bone’s connected to the leg bone. The leg bone’s connected to the knee bone. The knee bone’s connected to the thigh bone. Doin’ the skeleton dance. Try not singing that little ear worm for the rest of the day: you're welcome.

Once these bad boys are all dry, leave them outside your house for other kids to take instead of the usual trick-or-treat candy: craft and kindness all in one activity!
