Halloween Crafts for Preschool Students
Students can have kinds of fun making monsters that are less scary and more-so cutie pies! By taking a paper plate preschoolers can choose to paint it green (for Frankenstein), black (for a black cat) or leave it white (for a ghost). Then with a teacher’s help to cut the plate into the proper shape the students then can add-on features to complete their monsters! If they want to make Frankenstein full of nuts-and-bolts they can do that, draw cut whiskers on their cats, or put tissue-paper on their ghost so it looks like it is floating!
If the preschoolers don’t want to use plates to make a monster another fun activity is putting white paint on their hands and then pressing-it on construction paper. After that, the preschoolers can put black pieces of paper on their white-imprint to make a ghost formed out of their hand-print!
Halloween-Themed Decor Ideas for Classrooms
Putting up the crafts that the preschoolers have made always gives decor a nice personal touch. If you want to really add to the Halloween-theme however, some fun ideas include putting-up little paper candy-corns that represent how, “Sweet,” your students are, or a bunch of paper-bats to show how everyone is, “Going batty,” for Halloween. Putting-up decor of anything traditionally associated with Halloween will always add a nice spooky-but-cute element to any classroom!
