Halloween Kids Projects

Are you trying to figure out what to do with your little ones all day today? I have some ideas…….

I made a promise to myself that I would post the good, bad, and ugly. To me that means I have to confess the attempts that I make that just plain flop ha ha. This was one of them. It started out as a great idea but did not end well.

I let my son cut all out several different colors of paper with punches and scissors and we made our own pile of confetti.


Then I wrote the words BOO in block letters on two pieces of paper (one for him and one for me woot woot). Then we painted inside the letters with white Elmer’s glue. I know you see where this is going right? The plan was to cover the glue with confetti then let it dry.


When the paper is dry you are supposed to be able to tap off the excess confetti and see the word boo. We still aren’t sure where we went wrong exactly lol. I think we will try again and make it bigger? Does anyone have suggestions on a way to make this work better???

One project that did work out was this cute little pumpkin we made using 1/2 inch strips of paper wrapped around a pencil (to get the circle shape) and glue dots to hold it all together!!


Happy Halloween!!


  1. Very Fun. I think it"s great to make the whole day special not just the night! 80)

  2. Super cute ideas :-) Maybe if the confetti were smaller? Or like you said, bigger letters. Either way, it looks like you had a lot of fun!

  3. I tried glue with glitter last week for a poster and had the same problem, blobs instead of swirls so good luck next time, maybe it is a perfected art, very cute ideas though:)
