Halloween Arts and Crafts Ideas for Half-term


 “In comes the skeleton, in comes the ghost, in comes the
monster munching toast”

We’ve been hearing this rhyme a lot this week, in the run up
to my little Junior Infants school Halloween party. They joined up with their
buddies from 6th Class yesterday for some singing and traditional
Halloween fun and games. I don’t think he had been too impressed by the apple
bobbing though, as doesn’t like to get his face we  As well as singing we’ve
been enjoying lots of Halloween inspired arts and crafts activities both at home
and in school. The boys brought home to lovely artwork yesterday from school to
add to our existing display, including my eldest son’s “Frankenstein Collage,” which
I had been helping his class to make earlier in the week.
At home this week we tackled our final Halloween arts and
crafts activities before we head off for a few days over the mid-term break. We
took a classic Halloween activity and gave it a bit of added sparkle.
Ghost Footprints

    your child’s foot with white or silver paint.

    this onto black paper.
  3. Once
    dry add on googly eyes and sprinkle with glitter.

Skeleton Handprints

    your child’s hand with white or silver paint.
  2. Print
    this onto black paper.
