Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to get students excited than by introducing some spooky crafts into the classroom? Not only are these projects fun, but they also provide an excellent opportunity for students to enhance their creativity, motor skills, and teamwork. Here are some bewitching Halloween craft ideas perfect for schools:
1. Paper Plate Ghosts
White paper plates
Have the children glue on ghostly faces using the recycled black sugar paper or markers. Attach a string at the top, and you have a simple, floating ghost ready to haunt the classroom!
2. Tissue Paper Pumpkin Lanterns
Blow up the balloons slightly. Have students tear up the orange tissue paper and glue it around the balloon. Once dried, pop the balloon and add facial features with black construction paper and a green stem on top.
3. Handprint Bats
Googly eyes (optional)
Students dip their hands in black paint and press them onto white paper with thumbs overlapping. This creates a bat shape. Add googly eyes or draw them on for a finishing touch!
Halloween crafts offer a fantastic way to bring the festive spirit into the classroom. They allow students to work with their hands, think creatively, and even learn a bit about the history and traditions of Halloween. So, gather your materials and let the spooky crafting begin
Happy Haunting and Crafting!
