Halloween Slime


With it’s gloopy, sticky texture, slime is the perfect addition to any Halloween celebration. And not only is slime fun to play with, it’s also fun to make! Plus, with its bad rep for including toxic ingredients, the best way for your kids to enjoy slime safely is to make your own - this way you know exactly what’s gone into it.


This Halloween themed slime recipe is not only Borax free, it’s also simple enough for kids to make too.

Spiders Webs


Here’s one for the older (or more dexterous!) kids! These spindly spiders webs involve weaving yarn around painted popsicle sticks to create a spiders web effect.


As this craft involves painting and gluing, it may be best to get started on this at the beginning of the party so you can leave plenty of time for everything to dry before adding the yarn webs.

Skeleton Hand


But what about crafts for younger kids? If your guest list includes toddlers, you don’t want to exclude them from the fun with fiddly crafts and tricky techniques.


This easy craft uses everyday household items with simple craft methods that makes it perfect for young children and toddlers.


Keep it simple with just a white skeleton hand print on paper, or level it up with Q-Tip pieces for bones too!

Halloween Character Cups


This craft is simple enough for kids of all ages to get involved with and can also be adapted to create a variety of Halloweeny characters, which makes it great for parties with a large number of children attending.


Your guests can choose to create their favourite one and compare them with their friends, or use their imagination to create their own unique monster design!


Again, considering the time the paint will need to dry, this craft might need to be set up at the start of the party to be completed later.

Rubber Stamped Bat T-Shirt


Here’s something a little out of the ordinary! T-Shirt decorating is always popular at craft parties and this easy Halloween themed design will go down a storm.


Although the materials are more specialised, the finished product will be one that stands the test of time.


You could also suggest that your guests bring their own plain t-shirts to the party to save confusion with sizes and fitting.

Bat Plate Craft


This craft can be created completely paint (and glue*) free, which is great if you’re looking for something less messy. It also works well if you’re short of time or coming to the end of the party and don’t want to wait for your craft to dry.


*if you want a completely glue free alternative, search for self-adhesive googly eyes or use double sided sticky tape.
