Pumpkin Art: This craft is a great way for your little ones to practice their fine motor skills while creating adorable decorations!

Have your little ones paint the shape of a pumpkin and then “carve” it with pieces of black and white paper!
Cotton Ball Ghosts – This craft is fun, although not entirely mess free. The main materials you will need are black construction paper, white chalk, glue, and black buttons.

Halloween Wreath – This craft is a great way for your little ones to show their different creative sides. The most important thing you need is cardboard cut into the shape of a wreath. After that your little ones can choose to paint it whatever Halloweeny color they want and use and kind of colored tissue paper, bows, googly eyes, or fake spiders to make it whimsical!
Halloween Straw Necklace – This craft is one that your little ones can wear to school and will help develop fine motor skills.
