Family Matters: 12 October Crafts

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

 

You do not have to be an uber crafter to get in the Halloween mood. There are plenty of ways to get crafty with kids—some ideas require a bit more planning or set up (making shadow puppets) and other projects (drawing on pumpkins with markers) are perfect if you are short on time or would rather not make a mess.

To make crafting fun for children, it’s helpful to remember that they often enjoy the process more then then the end result. You may want to choose projects for the experience. For example if you make a pumpkin mosaic the kids may prefer shredding different shades of orange paper more than where they glue them. If you are looking for a finished product, prep things in advance depending on the child’s age or skill level and make your own craft alongside them or work on your project while the kids are sleeping or off at school.

Have a spooky October with this round-up of cool, crafty Halloween projects.
