Every year I get asked to help with my kid’s class parties. I don’t know about the rest of you parents out there but I really have a hard time coming up with crafts, snacks, or games to entertain these kiddos. This year I decided to be proactive and get a list ready of things that I could do when the request came to help out. Here are some easy but fun things to make their class party a hit!
- Pipe Cleaners
- Googly eyes
Twist the pipe cleaners around the sucker stick and shape them into spider legs. Glue the eyes and voila!
Crazylittleprojects.com offers a really cute Halloween bingo free printable. I printed out two to a page, cut them out, and laminated them. This way I could reuse them in years to come. Cut out the smaller picture squares included with the bingo cards and mix them up in a bowl. I took a bag of candy corn to use as place markers and the kids had a blast snacking and shouting bingo!
- Construction paper
- pre-printed skeleton heads
This was a fast and easy craft for the kids to do. I printed different skeleton heads before the party so all the kids had to do was pick one and get gluing. They got pretty creative with their skeleton anatomy which turned out to be hilarious and fun. Definitely a craft to save for when they are older.
