2. Make Pumpkin Crafts
Halloween fun is incomplete without pumpkin crafts. So, get an orange and green chart, ask your kids to cut the pumpkin shape, and then decorate it with sticky beads. Also, make dotted pumpkins by using posture colors. The other option is, purchase orange balloons and place a Halloween surprise in each of them. Then, make a pumpkin shape on their outer side using markers. Finally, pop up the balloons with your friends and collect the hidden surprise.
The third option is, fill in corn starch in the empty orange balloons and tie their mouth. Make sure not to fill them up with air. Now, draw a mouth and eyes on it using a black marker. Your kids will love this soft and spongy balloon pumpkin.
3. Halloween Candy Shop
Your kids might have gathered too many Halloween candies. Let them create a shop, the elder kid will be the shopkeeper, and the rest will become customers. Then, make structures using pumpkin candies and chopsticks.
The other way to play with Halloween candies is, split up into two teams. Then, arrange a bowl, stack of sweets and, a pair of chopsticks for each group. Set the timer and start. The group that transfers more candies to the bowl using chopsticks will win.
4. Blow Paper Ghosts
Take a white paper and cut small-sized ghosts. Then, use a black marker to make different emotions on them. Now, use a straw and blow these strange ghosts.
