10 Rad Halloween Activities For Kids
Posted on 20 October 2015
We love Halloween here at Little Misfits, mostly because skeletons, zombie movies, the colour black, and the dark of night are our jam! These things don't always equate to fun for children however, so we've compiled a list of awesome Halloween crafts, activities, and treats for kids.
Puking Pumpkins Science Experiment: Awesome (and gross science) experiment for older kids, and super easy to do at home!
Candy Corn Catapults: Make good use of that candy no one really loves (or you don't want your kids eating too much of). Create a candy corn catapult - great for kids.
Masking Tape Mummy Craft: Awesome craft for toddlers with just paper and masking tape!
Creepy Sensory Boxes: Creepy and gross, but fun for all ages. Fill boxes with all sorts of gooey things and try to guess what they are!
Q-Tip Skeleton Craft: Create a skeleton, this can be easy for toddlers or more anatomically correct and more difficult for older children.
Halloween Optical Illusion: I remember making these as a kid, though they weren't Halloween themed. I think younger kids would get a kick out of these, it's almost like magic!
Blow Paint Monsters: I am definitely going to try this with my kids at home! Super cute and creative result, and doesn't have to be scary for younger kids who aren't into that.
Carve-Free Pumpkin Ideas: Perfect ideas for toddlers, because well, knives are not a good idea. Let your kids have free reign and save your arm strength for your own pumpkin!
Silly Monster Snacks: These look ridiculous and delicious.
Glow-In-The-Dark Slime: This looks SUPER gross and way cool. Green gooey glow-in-the-dark slime you can make at home! Great for older kids to help.
So what do you think, are you going to try any of these with your kids? With the cold, rainy weather we've been having this week it is the perfect opportunity to get your DIY hat on and rock some of these! Let us know if you try any and share your success (or fail) photos to the Little Misfits Facebook!
