    Default Halloween Crafts

    Hi

    Just thought I would share our Halloween crafts.

    We made spider webs and spiders which are connected to suckers for hanging. Good for hand and eye co-ordination and motor skills

    We also made glow in the dark ghosts. Inside the ghost bottles are glow sticks that the children can snap at night to make the ghost glow in the dark .

    Hope you like ?

    Love your bottles. They made ones very similar on Blue Peter the other day. They were called ghostbots or something similar.

    We planned the bottles weeks ago . I was gutted Blue Peter pinched my idea ha ha although I think they used lights instead of glow sticks. Feel free to use the idea. Children love them and can't wait for them to glow x

    What a great idea - both of them! I had seen a pic of the spider web idea and was going to do it with mine but realised I haven't got any wool and can't get to a shop that will sell any before the end of this week.

    Love the Ghost bottles - I have plenty of empty bottles in my Junk Modelling Bag, not sure about white tissue paper though, may have to think of an alternative. Thinking caps on!!

    We used white because of ghosts and it was the best colour my glow sticks showed up through as my other tissue colours are darker x

    We have done ours this morning and used white sticky labels to make the ghost, will add pic
    Thanks for a lovely idea, it's normally difficult getting the boys to participate but halloween is their favourite time of the year.
