Fun Family Craft Projects for Halloween

If you’re looking for a new way to celebrate Halloween this year, try out some of the following family craft projects. Not only are these fun DIY ideas great for the whole family to do, but they can also leave you with new decorations for your home.

Creative Pumpkins

Rather than cut a face into your pumpkins this year, decorate them with some paint and pom-poms. Each kid can paint a pumpkin in a different color. After they’re done, mix acrylic paint and water together. Cover a craft brush with the mixture, and let your kids tap it above the pumpkins to add pops of color. Once your pumpkins are dry, they can then glue pom-poms in different patterns.

Cat Garland

Create a unique cat garland for your living room by first tracing the shape of a cat face onto colored paper roughly 20 times. Cut out the cat faces, and hole punch their eyes. Pull string lights through the eyes, and then hang up the garland as you please.

Tissue Box Monsters

If you have empty tissue boxes, your kids can turn them into adorable monsters. They can paint the boxes in bright colors, add googly eyes, use pom-poms as hair, and more. This is a chance for your kids to truly get creative.

Costume Hacks

Before the big night, check everyone’s costumes for length. If a costume hangs below the ankles, consider hemming it to avoid potential tripping. Also make sure your children’s costumes are accompanied by comfortable shoes – no parent wants to carry their kid from house to house for trick-or-treat.

Skip the Mask

Masks can be uncomfortable or even make it difficult for your child to breathe after a period of time. Opt for safe face paint instead, or cut a mask to make sure that it leaves plenty of room for the mouth and nose – just make sure the mask won’t impair their vision, either.

Stay Well Lit

If your kids have dark-colored costumes, consider having them wear a reflective vest or reflective materials of some type. You want to be sure that each pedestrian is visible to drivers. If your child doesn’t want to add a vest to their costume, have them carry a flashlight to keep them in sight.

Check the Candy

Don’t let your kids dive into their candy stash before you have a chance to check it. Look for any candy that seems to have been tampered with, has tears or punctures in the wrapper, or looks suspicious in any way.

At Tipton Hyundai, we hope you have a safe Halloween!
