This Halloween craft also does a great job working on fine motor skills as well; by cutting the printable, and tracing the cardboard cut-outs.

And with Halloween approaching, it’s time now to start thinking and preparing for all the fun Halloween arts and crafts. There are so many good ones out there to choose from! 

While we tend to stick to easier ones that are age-appropriate for the kids, don’t be shy in venturing out and finding new things to create. Holidays are a great time to bond with your child and find new ways to create memories together. 

I hope that this simple Halloween craft gives you and your child a chance to bond together while creating something unique and fun at the same time.

I know I always get in a happy groove when painting or doing simple art activities with my kids.

What age is this Halloween craft geared towards?

That’s a great question. Honestly, I would say that this is for a preschool age and above. They may need help with cutting thin cardboard, but once that is the case, they can easily paint the Halloween paper tubes and simple Halloween shapes.

This is one of those simple Halloween crafts that actually look really cool so you might just find some of the older kids lining up to join in on all the crafting fun too!

Materials

Instructions

Step -1:

First of all, print and cut out the template patterns (the cat, the pumpkin and the ghost). Unfold the cereal box carton and use the plain (inner side) side of the carton for the craft. Trace the patterns on the carton with a pencil. 

Step -2:

Use scissors to cut out the traced patterns.

Step - 3:

Let’s make the pumpkin craft first. Grab orange and green acrylic paints and 2 paint brushes. Paint the pumpkin with the orange paint. 

Step - 4:

Paint the stem of the pumpkin with the green paint. Allow the painting to dry completely before the next step.

Step - 5: 

Grab black acrylic paint and trace the eyes, nose and mouth patterns of the painted pumpkin (Jack-o-lantern). Or, you can simply print and cut out the patterns; and use them directly for this craft. 

Step - 6:

In case you’re painting, fill the traced features of the Jack-o-lantern. 

Step - 7:

Similarly prepare the 2 other characters (the cat and the ghost). 

Step - 8:

Grab a tissue paper roll for the pumpkin and paint its outer surface with orange acrylic paint. 

Similarly paint 2 more cardboard tubes (1 with black acrylic paint and another with white acrylic paint). Attach the carton cutout characters on the cardboard tubes which match with their respective colors.

Done!
