Halloween is an exciting time for kids! This is an opportunity to dress up, to be scared but also to decorate the whole house with pumpkins, cobwebs, and spooky ghosts! To prepare for this family celebration, here is a Halloween activity for children to do.
Halloween activity : Painting with handprints
Young children enjoy drawing and painting with their fingers. Why not try this fun, easy and quick creative activity and make pictures from their handprints.
Activity created for Maped Helix by Valérie from Allo Maman Dodo.
Colouring pens or pencils
Spread black paint over the palm and fingers of one hand using a paint brush.
Once your hand is covered with paint, place it horizontally on a large white sheet of paper, as in the photo. Press down firmly.
Do the same with the left hand, in the other direction, to form the entire body of the spider. Then wash your hands!
Now decorate the paper with a fine felt-tip pen or black colouring pencils, by tracing cobwebs at the corners.
On a white piece of paper, draw eyes and a mouth with colouring pens and cut them out with scissors.
Now simply glue the face onto the spider and watch your spooky friend come to life !
And there you go! A spooky Halloween spider! We chose to make ours friendly but you can could try making scary or monstrous spiders! It’s up to you to let your imagination run wild!
Put orange paint in the palm of one hand and green paint at the base of the middle finger then spread with a brush.
Place your hand vertically on a white sheet of paper, as in the photo. Press firmly and then lift it away.
The palm forms the pumpkin and the green represents the stalk. Now wash your hands.
Now it’s time to decorate the pumpkin. With a fine felt tip pen or colouring pencils, draw the grass and vine in green and the grooves of the pumpkin in orange.
Then draw the face in black. Two triangles for the eyes and a zigzag mouth!
Display on the wall for a spooky Halloween decoration or make cards to wish your friends a Happy Halloween!
