Are you in charge of events for a Halloween party or harvest social?  Here’s an idea for a pumpkin decorating activity that’s sure to be a hit.

Why not mix up all the yummy candy with some fruits and veggies?  Lay out different fruits and vegetables for students to sample and use to decorate a pumpkin.  They can decorate little individual pumpkins or work as partners or in teams to decorate large pumpkins.

A variation on this idea is to have the children decorate pumpkins to resemble their favorite book characters.  They can use felt, construction paper, or paint to decorate their pumpkins.

Halloween Party Craft

Are you the parent in charge of your child’s class party craft?  This is one of my favorite craft ideas that a parent did in my classroom.  It’s a Halloween costume picture frame.


First, parent volunteers take pictures of the students in their Halloween costumes.  Then, a parent uploads the photos to a computer and sends them to a one hour processing store.  The pictures are picked up after the hour and brought back to school.  During the party, the kids assemble craft-stick picture frames (directions here).  They can color or paint them and add embellishments.  A magnet is added to the back so that it can be hung on the refrigerator.  When the pictures return to the school, the children’s pictures are put in their frames to take home.

Acorn Treats for Halloween Party

 

Have you been asked to bring Halloween treats to your child’s class party?  Here is a fun idea I came across on the web from Family Fun magazine.  They are acorns made out of mini Nilla wafers, Hershey’s chocolate kisses, thin pretzel sticks, and chocolate icing.  Package a few together in decorative Halloween or harvest baggies, and you have the perfect treat.  You can find step-by-step directions and pictures at the blog From Chapel Hill to Chickenville.
