fun crafts to do

for halloween

www.goodhousekeeping.com

1. Start with the right pumpkin.

Choose one that's fresh, with a sturdy stem, no bruises, and a

flat bottom so it won't roll while you carve.

2. Cut from the bottom, not the top. Michael

Natiello, pumpkin carving pro and creative director for The Great

Jack-o'-Lantern Blaze, says cutting your "lid" from the bottom of

the pumpkin helps prevent the sides from caving in later.

3. If you do carve from the top, cut out the lid

on an angle. This way it won't drop inside the pumpkin

when you put it back on top, like it would with a straight upand-down

cut. A boning knife should work well for this.

4. Scoop out all the pulp (and then some). You

can buy a special "claw" for pumpkin gutting, but an ice cream

scoop will do just fine. Thin the inner wall of the "face" area to

1¼-inch thick, so it will be easier to pierce the shell.

5. Sketch out your design on paper first. If you

draw your jack-o'-lantern face to size, Natiello says you can

use it as a pattern: Just tape it to the front of your pumpkin

and use a fork or pencil to poke holes along the lines you want

to carve. (Or save yourself from creative blocks by getting a

pumpkin carving kit, complete with a marker, scraper, cutting

tools, and pre-made patterns.)

6. Hold the pumpkin in your lap. It's easier to create

features when the face is gazing up at you. Natiello suggests

using a serrated kitchen knife or an X-Acto knife for carving,

but to make intricate designs, you could try using a small saw.

Just don't cut on a slant — clean up-and-down slices look best.

How to carve a pumpkin

7. Start by making simple rough cuts. If you get

the big pieces of pumpkin out of the way first, you can go back

and clean up the edges of your design later.

8. Use your scraps creatively. Make a tongue, pipe,

or hair accessories out of a discarded piece of pumpkin shell,

for example.

9. Keep your pumpkin fresh. Natiello recommends

spreading petroleum jelly on the cut edges to seal in moisture.

If your pumpkin still shrivels a few days later, you can revive it

with a facedown soak in cold water for up to eight hours.

10. Create a chimney. First, leave the lid on for a few

minutes while the candle burns. Then make a small hole where

the lid has blackened. Or, save yourself the stress and go with

battery-operated votives instead.

11. Sprinkle cinnamon inside the lid. That way,

when you light the candle, your jack-o'-lantern will smell like

a pumpkin pie. Yum.

Hanging Bat Craft

Here’s a simple hanging bat craft for kids using empty toilet paper rolls. These

adorable cardboard tube bats are a great way for kids to help decorate for

fall or Halloween. They also make a great activity to go with the children’s

book, Stellaluna! (Free bat wing template is provided on website www.

buggyandbuddy.com.)

Materials for Bat Craft

Cardboard tube (We used an empty toilet paper roll.)

Tempera paint (black or brown) and paintbrush

Construction paper (black or brown)

Black pipe cleaners

Scissors

Single hole punch (This is my favorite! It can punch through multiple

sheets without making your hand sore!)

Glue

Googly eyes

Marker (We used black and silver Sharpies.)

Bat wing template (optional)

How to Make the Bat Craft

1. Paint your cardboard tube either black or brown (depending on the color

bat you’d like to make). This is our favorite tempera paint to use. I love the

colors and it doesn’t have a strong paint odor like other tempera paints.

2. While the cardboard tube is drying, draw some bat wings onto

construction paper and cut them out. (If you don’t want to draw them

yourself, you can use our bat wing template.)

3. Glue the wings onto the back of the cardboard tube.

4. Cut out some little triangles from your construction paper to make

ears. Glue these onto the bat, along with some googly eyes. Use a marker

to draw a mouth.

5. Punch two holes in the bottom of your cardboard tube. This is where

the legs will go.

6. Cut a black pipe cleaner in half. Twist one end of each pipe cleaner

through each punched hole.

7. To make the feet, snip off the last inch of each leg. Wrap the one-inch

piece of pipe cleaner around the bottom of each leg. Fold the middle part

of the foot to make a hook for hanging.

8. Hang your bat up for fall or Halloween!

easy costumes for

for halloween

www.todaysparent.com

Skunk Costume: For the distinctive tail, stuff a black sock, adding in a piece

of craft wire to help it hold its shape. Using a glue gun, stick the tail to the back

of a black hoodie (use a hand-me-down or inexpensive one). Then hot glue

thin white boas from the top of the hoodie, down the back and over and under

the tail. Cut two ears out of black stiffened felt and glue onto the hood. For the

tummy, cut an oval out of white felt. Glue one half to one side of the zipper, and

use Velcro to attach the other side (so you can still access the zipper).

Cow Costume: Cut out four

egg cups from an egg carton,

apply pink acrylic paint and

then hot glue them onto an

oval cut from pink felt. Hot glue

your udder onto the front of a

white shirt. Next, cut random

shapes out of black felt and hot

glue onto white pants, shirt and

hat. To make ears, cut rounded

diamond shapes out of black and

pink felt; pinch the bottom of the

diamonds and stick onto the hat

with hot glue. Attach a tiny bit of

fake fur to the top of the hat.

Grapes: Cut out a

crown from green Bristol

board and embellish with

paper leaves made out

of construction paper.

Hand stitch the balloons

to the outfit by threading

the needle through the

knot of each balloon.

Use a face paint pencil to

complete the look.

Bunny Costume: Cut out two layers of felt for each ear, plus an

accent piece for the inner ear. Glue each of the layers together. Loop the

bottom edge of each ear around the headband and hot glue in place.

Make a tail using a pom-pom and attach it with a needle and thread.
