Are there any educational benefits associated with an online Halloween coloring book? If you are asking me I will say "yes". Children seek many different forms of entertainment. Many are content to indulge in a good store bought coloring book while others enjoy the entertainment that an online Halloween coloring book has to offer. Many parents may not realize it but coloring - whether it is online or offline - offers numerous educational benefits. First this type of activity encourages children to be creative in many ways. Creativity is the basis of all educational experience. If a child can be creative they can easily open themselves up to a number of educational experiences. Not many parents would believe an online Halloween coloring book could have this type of effect.
You might want to use pliers. Braid them together and make them into a wreath/circle by twisting the top hooks together. Next tear or cut pieces of paper... about a foot long and wide. Pinch the paper strips in the middle and crunch it up as if you were making a flower. Tuck the "paper flowers" into the little holes in the braided wires and pull tight. Fill up your wreath to fullness! Spray paint it! About three coats of paint is good with about 50 minutes drying time in between. Use the kind of spray paint that holds up outside (in case of rain). Please do the spray painting outside or in a well ventilated room. Cover tables with those inexpensive plastic tablecloths. When the paint is good and dry attach the decorations with the hot (low temp is fine) glue gun. Just be careful not to burn yourself. Adults and older kids should be the glue gunners. You are done! Hang it up on your front door maybe with an orange light aimed at it.
Table sprinkles in the form of ghosts pumpkins witches or bats can be used to give that creepy look. Place these decorated candles around the house and watch them light up the evening! Another art and craft Halloween decoration is the creepy balloon ghost which is very easy to make. All you need is white balloons and plastic grocery bags. The bags should be plain with no writing on them. Here is how to create a spooky ghost: Cut off the handles of the grocery bag. Leaving the bottom of the bag intact with the help of scissors cut the bag into dangling strips up to about an inch from the bottom seam. In the same manner cut up another grocery bag. Fill up the balloon with air and knot it up. Tape the seam of one bag to the front and the other to the back leaving the knot on top.
