It’s Halloween time! The season of pumpkins and all things spooky, and we have a great list of our favorite Halloween crafts and activities to get you in the mood. These crafts and activities are a great follow up to your favorite Super Simple Halloween content, like our Halloween songs, or the Halloween episodes of your favorite Super Simple show. Not to mention, many of these crafts double as awesome homemade Halloween decorations! Bonus!
These spooky bats are simple to put together and make great Halloween decorations. Little ones can help paint the bat’s foam ball body, and help put all the pieces together. Ask them where each piece goes to make it a fun activity you can do together.
We made our Ten Monsters In The Bed masks so little ones to act out the fun song and pretend to be their favorite monster! They can create new Halloween adventures for the monsters to get up to, too!
Our Jack O’Lantern craft has two faces! Practice emotion opposites by putting opposite faces on each side of the jack o’lantern, like we did with happy and sad. Children can get involved at lots of stages of this craft: painting the paper plates, putting the faces together, and stitching the paper plates together with yarn to practice their fine motor skills. Try hanging this craft with some extra yarn to make a fun Halloween decoration!
Another great fine motor skill activity – make your favorite Super Simple characters into a mummy! Print out our free resource, and let your little ones go to town wrapping them up in yarn. This is a perfect activity for some Halloween inspired independent play.
Baby Shark is dressing up for Halloween too! Draw different costumes onto Baby Shark with our Baby Shark Halloween – Draw The Costume free printable. You dress Baby Shark up any way you like, or watch our Baby Shark Halloween music video for some inspiration!
These tissue box monsters are one of our favorite all time crafts. They are so fun to make, and fun to play with too! Little ones can really get involved with decorating their monster any way they like – see where their imagination takes them! This craft was also featured in our episode of Caitie’s Classroom – Count With Me where we practice counting by feeding the monster pom poms, counting as we go to see how many treats our monster can eat. How many Halloween treats can your Tissue Box Monster eat? Yum yum!
Spook your friends with our Flying Bat Craft! A simple craft (especially simple with our free printable bat template) that makes a spooky fun bat puppet that can fly through the sky!
For some Halloween sensory fun, nothing is quite like slime! This recipe can be made with simple ingredients you probably already have at home and can be reused for multiple play sessions. For extra Halloween fun, try adding some plastic spiders or other spooky things into the slime for your little one to play with and count.
Puzzles can be another great independent play activity for littles ones. Simple print out our free printable Skeleton Puzzle, cut along the dotted lines, and give to your little one to put together! This puzzle is inspired by our Halloween song, The Skeleton Dance. In this song, we explore how bones connect to make a full skeleton. In this activity we connect the pieces of the puzzle to make a full skeleton, too! See if your little ones can recognize the different parts of the body in the different pieces. We also have an easier version of this puzzle.
Our Five Little Monsters Jumping On The Bed Headbands are perfect for acting out the song Five Little Monsters Jumping On The Bed with a small group of little ones. Great for the classroom, or a group of friends! You can also try putting the headbands on stuffed animals to act out the song on your own. First color the monsters, then put together your headband for a great activity to go along with one of our favorite Halloween songs.
