Getting creative with some crafts projects is a fun way to get in the Halloween spirit in the days leading up to the day itself. If you’re throwing a Halloween party, some homemade decorations can save you some money and bring a unique touch to the celebrations. One of the most popular things to do is to carve pumpkins to make jack o’lanterns. There are also sorts of different faces you can carve, or you could paint designs onto pumpkins instead.
Crafts can keep kids occupied for many a happy hour and there are a number of printable Halloween crafts available online, such as colouring pages and paper decorations, which would be suitable for preschoolers. You could even include a quick and easy craft activity as part of a childrens party.
In the run up to your Halloween party, your kids can have fun making decorations and masks. Another idea for slightly older children is to sew stuffed toys made out of felt. These could be in any shape they choose, such as cats, ghosts or monsters.
