Preschool Crafts for Halloween
Chalk Ghosts – What a fun way to use cookie-cutters! Little ones will work on co-ordination and fine motor strength as they try to color inside their cookie cutter while using the other hand to hold it down. Sounds simple? My toddlers taught me otherwise! Older kids that find this easier to do can make little ghosts for a bigger drawing of a landscape or haunted house.
Sock-ingly spooky Ghost Craft – Do you have some lonely socks creepily lurking in your laundry room? Give them a job by turning them into Sock Ghosts! This mess-free craft takes minutes to create and is a budget-friendly way to add oomf to any decor.
A Simple Sensory Ghost Craft – You can have these cute little ghosts playing peek-a-BOO (ha!) all through the house in no-time! Preschoolers and toddlers will just love exploring cotton as they make this adorable craft. Have a little ghost scavenger hunt if you’re hosting a Halloween party this year!
A Kleenex Ghost – Low on cotton balls, but you have a high supply of tissues. Well then, make a Kleenex Ghost instead. These little guys look like they’re floating no matter where you put them! SCAAAAARY! This preschool craft for Halloween helps little ones improve coordination and offers a quick sense of accomplishment.
Jack-o-lantern and Pumpkin Crafts
Leaf-y Jack-o-lanterns – Turn that nature walk from this morning into a quick and easy, mess-free craft! Place your leaves in a baggie, draw on the bag and display. VOILA! Rich discussions on color, size, texture and type of leaves can ensue!
Easy Preschool Halloween Decorations: Jack-o-lantern Windows – This gem of a craft is very easy and can take little ones a LONG time to make (I think I WILL have a second cup of coffee, as a matter of fact)! Encourage your preschooler to cut the construction paper squares themselves and you’ve just bought yourself 10 mins of reading time. Did I also mention it’s fun and adorable?
Jack-o-lantern Shaving Cream Art – Shaving Cream Art is such a fun way to encourage children toward creative sensory arrt. Your little one could make and re-make their Jack-o-lantern art, dismantling it in the end. Alternatively, they can strive for the perfect Halloween masterpiece and display it, as the dried shaving cream does hold up for a short time.
Pumpkin Name Puzzle – Pumpkins lend themselves perfectly to name puzzles because of their “natural ridges.” Have them practice using scissors by cutting their own pieces and watch them assemble the name puzzle all on their own! Hold on, is this a super easy craft my preschooler can make almost entirely on their own?! Why, yes, yes it is folks!
