Fall is one of our favorite times of year. Pumpkins, corn mazes, ghosts and goblins galore! Here are our top picks for Halloween crafts to do with your grandkids this month that will be fun for all.
1. Decorate pumpkins: First, you’ll have to go to a pumpkin patch and pick out the best shapes and sizes for your designs. This is a fun activity no matter your age. The best part about decorating pumpkins is that you can be as traditional or creative as you want! Craft stores are well-stocked this time of year with pumpkin carving kits and/or jewels to glue onto the outsides of your pumpkin.
2. Spook up the house: Spread cotton spider webs onto your bushes and light fixtures outside to add a spooky Halloween element to your house. You can even buy some plastic spiders add to make it even more realistic.
3. Hanging ghosts: Have some extra napkins, cotton balls and some string on hand? Use the string to tie a few cotton balls to the middle of a napkin to make cute ghosts to hang around the house.
4. Paper bag lanterns. Grab some regular paper bags from the grocery store and decorate them with Halloween designs with your grandkids. Encourage some cut-outs for the eyes and mouth. Put them outside with a few rocks to keep them stable (in case of wind) and put a small tea candle inside to light it up. For an even safer project, you can purchase some battery-operated candles instead.
5. Apple cider: This may not be a craft, but it’s a great treat to make together. Juice some apples (perhaps from your recent apple picking adventure) and add some nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves for a deliciously warm drink.
