We all do it. No matter how well we think we have events planned out, we always forget some small aspect that seems like everything is ruined without it. A Halloween party our children for example. Unless we want sugar-infused kids running amuck with nothing to do, we better have something fun to entertain them before the party turns into a real terror. Here are five, quick, easy and fun last minute ideas that you can use this Halloween.
For this project, all you need is purple and black construction paper, scissors, a glue stick, a permanent marker, and some white cupcake liners or tissues. Cut out an outline of a tree with the black construction paper then glue it to the purple sheet. Crumple the cupcake liners to look like a ghost, add some eyes and a mouth, then glue them in the tree and you have a creative and fun Halloween decoration that your children can display.
Another fun craft the kiddos will enjoy only requires a sheet of black construction paper and something to poke holes with, such as a pencil or pen. Help them draw an outline, a template would be easier to follow on the back paper, of Halloween characters on the paper. Once done, let them poke holes around the outline and then display in the window. When the sun goes down, take them outside and show them how their creations light up when displayed in your front window.
Using a black non-toxic marker, have your children create funny and unique pumpkin faces on mandarin oranges. They not only make for a creative decoration but also a healthy snack during or after the party.
