I’m melting…Witch Fingers!

~:: Creative Connections for Kids ::~

If you have a bunch of broken crayons you can put them to ‘spooktacular’ use by melting them into witch finger crayons! These fancy fingers are super fun to make. Kids (and grown-ups) love seeing the colors melt together and transform into a new shape and creation. Witch finger crayons make cute party favors and gifts for friends too.

Halloween Crafts: Glow in the Dark Eyeballs

~:: Red Ted Art’s Blog ::~

I bet you were wondering “More Halloween Crafts?!” Well here are some ghoulish Halloween Eye Balls for you…best of all the GLOW IN THE DARK!!! How spooky is that?!

We came up with the idea, as we love Googly Eyes so much and thought how about some “giant” googly eyes that we could hide around the house and make things look SPOOKY and then we decided to add some glow in the dark paint. Whoop Whoop!

Halloween Games

~:: The Pleasantest Thing ::~

For our annual Halloween party, our goal is to get the kids moving and laughing. Many of the games in this collection are old favorites, given a Halloween update. All of them are simple, easy to make ideas – you probably already have most of the supplies.
