Kids Halloween party ideas
This is the season to make your children happy. For some fresh Halloween party ideas, take a look here. Become.com has on offer some wonderful DIY party ideas. With these ideas, you can keep kids engaged and make sure they have a rip-roaring, fun Halloween.
Simple-to-execute ideas can save you heaps of time and energy. Get the kids to make their own skull decorations. Younger kids can make string decorations with skulls and spiders. Cut out shapes of skulls and spiders like in the Skull & Spider string decoration. Cut the shapes out and stick on to colored cardboard and attach to strings. They can also make skulls with Styrofoam and paper or make a Glitter Skull.
An easy and fun way to make a sock spider will excite children and keep them engaged. Use easily available materials like black socks for the body, pipe cleaners for the legs with round, googly eyes and some glue. Then just hang them up from a window or door. You can also create a spooky mood with a Halloween Spider center piece. Use the sock spiders along with some balloon ribbons for a scary effect.
You can go wild with pumpkin ideas. Pumpkin Carving kits that are available on Become.com can help kids make their own Jack-o-Lanterns. But some adult supervision and help will be necessary as the kit comes with 3 carving tools, 10 stencils and a scoop. A carved pumpkin, well decorated looks good as a table centerpiece too. Or you can choose a Bethany Lowe “Games & Stunts” Halloween pumpkin that comes with a pompom and sparkling stars.
Kids generally love dabbling in art work. Get them to stick different shaped stickers and then paint the pumpkin fully in black. Slowly remove stickers and hey presto! You’ve got designs and patterns on your pumpkin. Paper pumpkins can also be made by cutting pumpkin shapes out of white card stock and stuck together with glue for a big fat pumpkin.
