Five easy craft projects for your little ones this Halloween - by Good House Keeping

Fruit & Veggie Monsters!

Simply add googly eyes to any veggie or fruit to make it a monster with a dot of butter icing or frosting. Display them on your table or in a bowl for a great little display. (Just remember to make sure all of the eyes are removed before consuming). 

Apple Stamping Pumpkin Craft

Cut an apple in half and dip into bright orange paint. Use the apple to print onto white paper and decorate with little extras such as googly eyes, pipe cleaners and glitter. 

Splatter Paint Pumpkin

Time to get messy! Paint a pumpkin in a solid colour and mix a selection of acrylic paints with water for the splatter mixture. Coat a craft brush or toothbrush with the paint mixture and lightly tap it repeatedly over the pumpkin to create a splatter effect.

Hanging Spider Web

First, fold 2 sheets of black paper accordion-style (about 1.5" inch folds), and then fold each in half lengthwise. Cut the top of the fold diagonally, so you'll have a pointed end when it's unfolded. Then, cut three rectangles out of the paper, about half an inch apart, on each segment. Once you have folded and cut both sheets of paper, tie them together tightly at their center folds. Take each loose edge of folded paper and attach it to the end next to it with glue.

Once finished, attach to a piece of string and dangle your paper creation on the window for passers by. 

Spooky Cats Eyes Garland

Trace a cat face shape on your choice of coloured paper approximately 20 times (depending on how long you want the garland to be). Then, use a hole puncher to punch out eye holes on the cat faces. Slide string lights into the hole-punched eyes, then plug in and enjoy!
