Ever wonder if your toddler gets bored?
Well, they certainly won’t be bored this Halloween season if you start spending time making fun fall crafts with them.
Not only will their creative energy be brought to the forefront, but they’ll be enjoying something new!
Keep reading to learn about four Halloween crafts to do with your toddler!
1. Spider Handprint
If you want to use paper crafts, making a spider handprint with your toddler is the perfect fall craft idea!
To do this, follow these steps:
- Fold black paper two times into a small rectangle
- Trace 4 of your fingers
- Cut it out and you’ll have 2 spiders!
- Add onto paper or hang them from the ceiling to spruce up your home for Halloween
This craft will be done in no time if you’re in a pinch to do crafts with your toddler!
2. Vampire Leaves
This one is pretty simple – and doesn’t cost very much either! Sounds like a great craft, huh?
All you need to do is go on a nice stroll with your toddlers. While walking, pick up some fall leaves that you find on the ground.
When you get home, spray paint them all black (you as the adult should do this away from the kids).
Once you do that, have your toddler draw scary faces on each leaf to make them look like spooky creatures!
If you’re opening a daycare, this is the perfect craft to get rid of some of their energy while also giving them a fun craft to do after the walk.
3. Fabric Ghosts
Creating fabric ghosts is not only a fun craft idea for your kids, but you could also use it for decor afterwards!
To start, pick up some styrofoam balls about the size of a golfball. Then, cut a square of white fabric. Give your toddler funky scissors to create a jagged edge for the fabric after you cut the squares.
Next, gather the fabric around the ball to create the head of the ghost. Tie it with a ribbon and wa-la! You have yourself a ghost.
4. Pumpkin Stress Balls
If you want to make pumpkin crafts with your toddler, these are the perfect go-to and are super easy! Here are the steps:
- Gather orange balloons
- Fill the balloons with rice
- Tie a knot at the end of the balloon
- Draw a face with black sharpie to make a pumpkin
This is a great craft to do if you are short on time. You’re also showing that it is sometimes okay to be stressed, but there are ways to deal with it!
