Of course kids can also draw or design their own pictures as well and this can greatly help them explore their own creativity. One of the problems with a number of games and activities designed for kids is the fact that they are seemingly lacking in creativity and that does not provide much for the kids in terms of helping them to think analytically and creatively. Whoa! That statement seems like a huge stretch in terms of describing the value of printable Halloween bingo cards. Well if you look at the cards as mere paper cut outs then yes it is somewhat understandable how you could arrive at such a conclusion. However if you look at the underlying creativity beneath the design of the cards then the value of the cards becomes obvious. By exploring creativity in the arts and crafts realm youngsters get a break from "button pushing" electronic games and instead explore talents that they may not knew they had. Of course this can be the start of something much more expansive down the road.

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.
Then use a witch s hat for the covered scarecrow head. Punch a hole in the hat where the hook of the hanger can go through. Hang the body over windows doors or cabinet handles. For cobwebs you can use cottons which you can spread all over the place. Cotton cobwebs is great for any theme you may have in mind. You can also use washable paint on your windows-you can either use spooking green all over or apply splashes of red for "blood". Replace your white bulbs with black orange or red ones bulbs for an eerie lighting effect. You can also cover lamps with colored cloth or netting for eerie shadows. Halloween is a time when one can experiment with creative craft ideas to make wonderful decorations for the house. It is an opportunity to dabble in the wonderful world of art and craft.
