Halloween is one of the most mysterious and mystical holidays, so it requires particularly meticulous preparation. To make this celebration even more exciting, and at the same time keep your children busy with useful activities, here a few ideas for Halloween paper crafts for kids.
Vampire Halloween Paper Craft
Collect the necessary supplies:
a sheet of colored A4 paper for the base
an additional sheet of colored paper in the color of the base
a sheet of white paper
a glue stick
Fold the sheet of A4 colored paper twice lengthwise
Glue the edges of the paper together
Fold the roll of paper in half widthwise
Fold the edges of the folded paper in half again
Cut the vampire’s ears out of colored paper and fangs out of white paper.
After you fold the paper, you should have a colored paper accordion glued to the base. You need to draw on the outer (upper) part of the accordion.
Draw the face of a vampire, including eyes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, and hair.
Unfold a piece of paper so you can access your mouth. Draw a tongue inside the folded sheet.
Glue the ears to the outside of the sheet
Draw with a colored marker the drops of blood on the fangs, and glue the fangs to the junction.
Great, the number one on the checklist of Halloween paper projects is ready!
Witch Paper Craft
To create the next item from the list of paper Halloween crafts, you will need:
3 sheets of colored paper, in different colors
a set of markers
Trace the plate onto a piece of paper, making a circle.
Cut out the circle.
Make cuts in the circle along its length.
Fold the paper circle in half and glue it along the fold line.
Fold the paper semicircle in half again and glue that.
Repeat the previous step with the remaining piece of paper.
Wrap the ends of the cut pieces of paper with scissors to form a fluffy petticoat.
Cut out the witch's head, arms, and hat from paper of a different color.
Glue the body parts to the base of the skirt with glue.
Draw the eyes, mouth, and nose of the witch with a marker.
Decorate the witch's hat by drawing a bat, a web, or a spider.
Take a piece of paper of a different color and fold it several times to form a bunch.
Make cuts at the top and wrap the ends of these scissors with scissors.
Cut off a piece on top that matches the height of the witch (this will be her broom).
Glue the witch's broom to one of her hands.
Done! Now there is not only a vampire, but also a witch to add to your Halloween paper crafts collection.
Pumpkin Halloween Paper Crafts for Kids
For this project, you will need:
a sheet of colored paper
a glue stick
Measure 8 or so equal stripes out on colored paper with a ruler and mark them with a pencil.
Cut the strips out.
Glue the strips with their tops together, to form rays emanating from the center.
Fold each strip into a semicircle shape and glue the base with the next strip, folded in the same way.
Repeat the procedure until all the strips are glued together, forming a ball.
Trace a circle on green paper, cut it out, and glue it to the base of the ball at the top.
Draw and cut out 2 pumpkin leaves, then glue them to the pumpkin tail.
To decorate the pumpkin with vine tendrils, cut out several identical colored ribbons, twist them with scissors and glue to the pumpkin's tail.
That's it — now you can make Halloween paper decorations in the shape of a pumpkin! Make a complete set to decorate the whole house with them.
