Non-Spooky Halloween Paper Craft & Classroom Halloween Game Ideas
Here are some fun (and non-spooky) Halloween Paper Crafts and Halloween Activities to try:
1. Did you know that you can make a toy using paper folding or origami? Kids will easily and quickly make black cat finger puppets and have fun playing with them!
2. Another origami based DIY paper toy your kids can make and play with is Jump the Cauldron game! Who is cooking in cauldron? Jumping frogs of course! This game will be fun Halloween party game for little ones!
3. Skeletons are scary! On the other hand, Day of the Dead Paper Puppets are not so scary at all! Kids can color and decorate them as they please and, after they are done, play with them or use them to decorate their rooms!
4. We love this Spider and Fly Cup and Ball Game. What a fun way to practice your motor skills!
5. When we think about monsters, one of the most famous surely is Frankenstein! For this Halloween, fold and play with Paper Frankenstein (Eye)Ball & Cup game! This game will provide fun for kids while you prepare everything for Halloween feast!
