Halloween craft ideas: fiendishly fun activities for mini monsters
Halloween 2021 is upon us, 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.
3. Cotton bud skeleton
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.
4. Glitter slime monsters
We already brought you a whole guide to making your own slime, so put it to good use and create your own glitter slime monsters this Halloween. Head over to 36th Avenue to get the deets on how to make those little, slimy critters pictured above.
5. Handprint witch
This easy peasy Halloween craft idea by The Best Ideas for Kids really is one of the best ideas for kids of all ages!
6. Spooky photo frame
All aboard the spooky Craft Train for the lowdown on how to make these DIY photo frames.
7. Rock monsters
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! Head over to Makoodle for instructions on how to make these cuties, and then hop on over to this London for Kidz guide for more rock painting ideas (it's addictive!).
8. Paper plate bat
Kids will go batty with this spooktacular paper plate idea by I Heart Crafty Things.
9. Pom pom pumpkins
Learning how to make pom poms as kid is practically an essential part of childhood, so why not get the pom pom party started with these pumpkin numbers by Moms on Time Out?
These Buggy and Buddy ghosts will certainly make a boo-tiful addition to your Halloween decor this year.
