Cris Happy Halloween
When a child visits an online Halloween coloring book and begins to indulge in the activities there it teaches them the value behind taking their time to ensure that they do a good job. It also helps them to learn the experience of accomplishment and a job well done. While this really may not seem like an educational benefit it really is. If all children valued the concept of hard work and dedication to the projects that they pursue or are assigned and learned to experience a sense of accomplishment within themselves on a regular basis the nation s literacy rates and standard testing scores would not be nearly as low. Children can also learn self-discipline by engaging in activities that involve coloring online and offline. They learn to stay at the task until it is done and this is very beneficial.
As said creativity is the master of all arts. Making candy corn out of polymer clay is quite easy and it is an excellent project for just about any age group. These little polymer clay candy corns are so cute and are great for adding to all sorts of decorations and other things. You could use them to embellish things like frames magnets candles or even for adding to scrapbooking pages. Supply List: - Polymer clay (yellow orange white) - I normally use the Sculpey brand Clear acrylic sealer (optional) Instructions: 1. Warm up each color of clay by rolling and kneading it until it feels soft. Now roll each color out until it s about 1/4" thick. Now press the three rolls together with white on top orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom. 2. Find a thin sharp edge such as a thin piece of cardboard to use to slice through the clay.
Halloween Wreaths - Horrible Halloween Art! Do you dare to make some horrible art for Halloween? We dare you! Nothing Cute allowed! UGLY or CREEPY is what we re after here... as in HALLOWEEN! This is creative fun for a family a scout troop a classroom afterschool program. It s a good idea to partner an adult with children 6 and under.. Get all the materials collected about a week ahead of time and do the project a few days before Halloween... paint-drying time is needed as you will see below so you may need three sessions to complete the project. Every wreath will be unique... it s a very creative project. You could make one ahead of time so you have a sample but remind the kids to do their own design. Materials: 3 wire hangers per wreath Newspaper or packing paper Hot glue gun - low temp is OK. Scissors Black and or Orange Spray paint (a kind that holds up outside) Decorations - such as plastic eyeballs rubber bats plastic spiders and some more ugly ugly stuff: fake worms plastic peanuts with googly eyes plastic cockroaches torn up egg cartons. straw... nothing cute allowed! How to do it: Straighten out the hangers.
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.
