Hallween Kid Crafts

We've been having so much fun making halloween crafts every day! Here are a few of our faves:

Handprint Spiders

These cute little spiders are too cute & super easy! You just fold a piece of paper in half, trace your Busy Bees hands and cut out (cutting off the thumbs). Add eyes and a smile (if they are friendly spiders like ours!) :) I plan to hang these from fishing line so they look like they are dangling in the corner of the room. For now, they are getting a lot of laughs as we scream like crazy and call for Daddy to come and get the spiders in the dining room. Eeeeek!

Handprint Ghosts

These ghosts are so simple but so cute! I just love how the palm makes little mouths. Looove

Apple Print Pumpkin Patch

This is my favorite and will definitely be framed and put out year after year.
We did the pumpkin shape by slicing an apple in half and dipping it in paint. I just love all of the characters. Top row: (L to R) Vampire, Witch, A cup (?) :) Bottom Row: (L to R) Bat (on it's side), Cat, Owl
Could these be any cuter??

Thumbprint Halloweenies

Another favorite activity is thumbprint pictures a la Ed Emberly. I just love to do these because all you need is an inkpad or two and a marker and your imagination. Busy Bee's creation didn't photograph well, but here is a pic to give you an idea and inspire you. These little cuties are so adorable! Get them here!

If you are a crafty momma like me and you don't have one of his books, you need one!

Bee Happy,
