Craft: Toilet Paper Pumpkins

Supplies: a roll of toilet paper per child, an orange piece of tissue paper per child, green tissue paper pieces, raffia, black pumpkin face cut out of black paper or foam per child (optional)

Have each child roll up their toilet paper in a sheet of orange tissue paper. Then have them tuck the ends of the tissue paper into the cylinder inside the toilet paper roll. A part of a piece of green tissue paper can be twisted and tucked into the top along with some raffia. As an optional addition, you could cut out jack-o-lantern faces ahead of time or have the children cut out their own from black paper or sticky foam. Have them glue or tape the faces onto their pumpkins.

Craft: Ghost Pops

Supplies: a lollipop or sucker per child, a 6 x 6 piece of white fabric cut per child, black sharpie, a piece of black, purple or orange ribbon per child

Using pinking shears, cut out as many 6 x 6 pieces of fabric as you’ll need so that each child can have one. We used an old white sheet for the fabric. Have each child put a piece of the white fabric over a lollipop. Help them tie a piece of ribbon around the stick to keep the fabric on. With a sharpie marker, have them draw a spooky face onto their ghost. Boo!

Those look like they would be fun to make. I'm going to do these with my 5 year old this weekend.
