Easy Halloween Crafts for Toddlers


I've been feeling a bit guilty for not doing very many crafts with Ivy, at 20 months old she's still a bit young for crafting and it's just so much easier to do them with Ethan as at 4 he's really getting creative and very capable.  But poor little Ivy always wants to join in and absolutely loves to get messy and creative, so I decided while Ethan was at preschool one day to dedicate some crafting time just to her.

We received this fantastic box of craftiness from Bostik, full of possibilities and the only requirement being that we make Halloween crafts.  So instead of making just one thing, and as toddlers tend to have quite short attention spans, we made 5 fantastic Halloween decorations.

We started by making a Halloween wreath using a black paper plate, orange buttons, orange pumpkin shapes (from a long ribbon), a piece of black and orange spider ribbon and Bostik Blu Stick (a glue stick that goes on blue and dries clear!)

Ivy absolutely loved the Blu Stick, she could have just covered everything in blue glue all day long!  I literally had to pry it out of her hands to convince her to start sticking things to her wreath! She then stuck all of the buttons and pumpkins on easily, and I tied the ribbon and used Micro Dots (which will stick to absolutely anything) to attach the bow to the wreath.

Next Ivy made a witches hat using a cardboard cone shape, black feathers and black felt that I cut into triangle shapes.  She stuck everything on using her Blu Stick.

For our little ghost we used a large white pom pom, a white pipe cleaner wrapped around so that he can hang up and two small black pom poms that I used the Micro Dots to get sticky and Ivy placed on.

The candy corn is made from a piece of a white foam sheet that I cut into shape, a strip of stripy orange ribbon and an assortment of yellow bits and bobs that Ivy stuck on using her Blu Stick.

Finally we made a friendly spider using a polystyrene ball, assorted pipe cleaner legs that Ivy could poke right into the ball, a pipe cleaner to hang our spider up, feathers that were also poked into the spider for hair, some googly eyes and small black pom poms stuck on using Ivy's favourite Blu Stick.

Ivy is very proud of all of her creations, and they're looking very spooky hung up all around the house!  I'll definitely be making the effort to make more crafts with her, especially if she gets to use that Blu Stick!
