Ella was my main helper for the prep work as Abigail was in school. We got some black and white paint, blue card and dug into the recycling box for loo roll holders and egg boxes. I set Ella up with the blue card and gave her a sponge to dip into the paint to make little ghosts.
We then put them aside to dry and she continued on with the sponge and covered some loo rolls in white paint.
We put these aside to dry and got on with the prep for our bats and spiders. All we needed was black paint, a bit of water, loo rolls and egg cartons.
All of these were painted black and put aside to dry.
The next day when everything was dry both of the girls sat up at the table to put everything together. You will need googly eyes, pritt stick and pipe cleaners for the next bit.
I had painted a spooky Halloween scene first, the girls cut around Ella's ghosts and stuck some googly eyes on them before sticking them onto the spooky scene.
Next they stuck googly eyes onto the white loo rolls and drew little screaming o's to make their ghosts.
The egg cartons were cut out and I punched holes in them for the girls to thread the pipe cleaners through for legs. More googly eyes and we had a creepy spider.
Finally we cut bat wing shapes out of some card we painted black, you could use black card if you have it. We stuck these onto the black loo rolls with googly eyes to make the bats. You could also paint little fangs and add some ears if you had the chance.
So they were our simple Halloween crafts I would love if you could share yours and please read other peoples, leave a comment and use the hashtag #batcraftcrazy so they will know were you are visiting from. I will share all posts on my Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and I will let the girls pick one or two for us to try out. They don't just have to be arty I would love to see some creative baking or spooky experiments too. Please get involved and have fun.
