Halloween usually conjures up images of strange shapes dark movie characters and popular animals. These days though these common figures can be made in more ways than one and using an assortment of different materials. Here are the top eleven variations on the most popular Halloween arts and crafts for kids. Bats It s not necessary for you to buy plastic bats for Halloween decorations. You can easily cut patterns or two dimensional bats from construction paper or cartolina. Bat Halloween arts and crafts for kids can also be creatively made out of egg cup cartons to hang or out of clothes pins to clip on curtains.
Cut out some eyes from construction paper and stick them on the jars before you put on the tissue so you can have the eyes slightly covered and just peeking. Cats What s Halloween without black cats? Use paper plates to create cat masks or some cotton and crepe paper to create billowing streamers.

Cemetery Halloween Arts and Crafts Theme Coffins bones stone hedges and dead bodies are appropriate for a cemetery theme.
Skeletons Arms The skeleton arms have string or wool running through them. With a length of string doubled in half thread the loop through 6 of the discarded peg springs and then thread the rest of the string through the loop and pull tight to that the springs are firmly connected to the end of the string. This is the skeleton s hand. Stick two peg halves back to back with the string sandwiched between. The tapered end of the pegs should point to the hand. This is the forearm. In a similar fashion glue two more peg halves so that the rounded end meets the rounded ends of the forearm. This is the skeleton s upper arm. Finally make the skeletons shoulder with two more pegs the rounded ends meeting the tapered ends of the upper arm. Cut the remaining string at the tapered ends of the skeleton s shoulder. Make two arms in this way. Use some pegs as clamps to hold the pegs until the glue has started to fix the pegs. Leave to one side to dry.
This is a great idea to decorate the nooks and crannies of fireplaces and mantles. Another great craft idea we used last year was spider eggs! All you need to make these is some eggs some paint and those little black spiders you can find at the dollar store craft store or even the toy section of Walmart or Target. You simply want to paint a portion of the egg to make it looked cracked where the spider has emerged. Then you simply want to glue the spider to the egg and you have a scary and cute hatchling! Finally the craft I am so excited to make this year is floating papier-mache ghosts! These glowing ghosts are perfect for hanging in doorways and trees. You can light these adorable ghosts with the use of battery-powered light or glow sticks! Peg art is a craft where clothes pegs are used as the building material.
