Ghostly Lollipops: If you are planning on handing out lollipops as part of your treats for trick-or-treating, you can decorate them. Cover the lollipop with a tissue, tying securely with a rubber band or piece of ribbon. Use a marker to draw eyes and mouth on your ghosts and they are ready to be given out.
Paint a Pumpkin: Pumpkin carving can be messy, difficult, and sometimes dangerous. Instead, use some permanent markers or acrylic paint to make your pumpkin to look like a monster, clown, or other Halloween character. The smaller “pie pumpkins” or even the mini-pumpkins will work perfectly for this craft.
Paper Plate Masks: While you may not be able to dress up in a costume until the day of Halloween, you can easily create your own masks. Cut eyes and breathing holes out of a paper plate. Punch a hole on either side to attach a ribbon or string to tie the mask on. Then you can decorate the mask with crayons, marker, paint, or by gluing items to it.
