SUPPLIES YOU’LL NEED:
Googly Eyes (optional)
Line 10 Popsicle sticks in an uneven row, vertical row. Glue two horizontal sticks across the top and the bottom to secure the placement. Wait for it to dry then flip it over.
This is the part my daughter loves. Have your preschooler paint the front white while you are cutting out the eyes and mouth. When they are done, apply a small amount of your cut outs and glue them to your ghost. Viola!
It’s as easy as that!
Line 8 Popsicle sticks in an even row. This time you will glue one horizontal stick across the top. Wait for it to dry and flip it over.
Allow your kiddo to paint the green monster. Once the paint dries, glue to googly eyes and paint his hair, mouth, scars and eyebrows. To add a little flare, paint some yellow teeth too.
Line 3 large Popsicle sticks into a triangle. You can ask your preschooler to line this up to learn the shape. Glue each piece together and paint the triangle black.
Use your foam sheets to cut out a stripe of green and glue to the bottom of the hat. While that is drying, cut out a square piece to add a small buckle of embellishment.
Also cut out a triangle to fit the backing, glue and your done!
HALLOWEEN WITCH FINGERS
My daughter especially loved these. Paint as many large sticks green as your preschooler’s heart desires. We settled on 3.
While they paint, cut out small pointed ovals. When the paint dries, glue the ovals to the tip of the stick and finish off with some small squiggled lines to give the wrinkled look.
In a vertical line, lay 7 small sticks in an even row. With scissors, cut a large Popsicle stick to glue to back to secure your line. Next, glue 4 small sticks to face one side of the spider and another for facing the other side.
Paint that little guy black or brown. For a hairy spider, you can paint him all black and then lightly brush a little brown on his legs.
Glue on some googly eyes and paint on a mouth.
YUMMY HALLOWEEN CANDY CORN
Like the witch hat, place three large or small sticks in a triangle form. After that, glue three more sticks in the center.
Once that sets and dries, paint the triangle shape. White on the top, orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom.
FALL CARAMEL APPLES
This one was my daughter’s second favorite. Glitter always makes for a fun time! Cut out two small circles with your foam sheets. We used a soup can for the template. The cut out small squiggly shapes for the delicious caramel.
Glue the circle to a large Popsicle stick and then glue on the caramel cut out to the circle. From there you can tap on a little glitter and BAM! It’s done! SO CUTE!
FUNNY HALLOWEEN WITCH
I will say this witch was a little bit more challenging. Like many others, line up 8 small sticks vertically and glue a stick to the back to hold it in place.
Paint Little Miss Witch and glue on some googly eyes.
Here’s where it gets a little challenging. For her hair, cut out two ob-longed triangles. Then, glue those to her face.
For her broom, you will snap a small Popsicle stick in half and glue each end to the back side so each stick pokes out of the side. We decided to paint the broom stick, but it looks terrific unpainted as well.
Then, cut a triangle shape for the broom brush and glue this to the tip of either side.
For her hat, cut out a triangle of black and glue it to the top of her head. If you would like a little bit more texture, you can use scissors to cut out a section of a large stick and glue to the bottom of the hat.
Then for a dash of color, cut out a small strip and fasten that to the hat. Then she is complete.
HALLOWEEN CRAFT DRACULA
Line 8 horizontal small sticks. Like previous crafts, glue two sticks that will remain on the back side of your Dracula to hold the front in place. I find it easier to cut a large Popsicle stick with scissors so there’s none sticking out of the sides.
Then paint his face and hair. While that is drying, cut out cone shapes for his cape. We chose red, but you can choose any color you’d like. Purple also looks nice.
By the time you are finished cutting these out, glue on your cape and he’s done.
More Fun Crafts:
CAT IN THE WINDOW
Meet the Halloween craft cat in the window.
Glue a square out of 4 large Popsicle sticks. Then, glue two more sticks right smack dab in the middle in the shape of a plus sign.
After you’ve painted it the desired color, pick another color to be the background. My daughter’s favorite color is purple, so we had to go with that.
Once that dries, cut out a shape of a cat head. Glue it inside one of the bottom squares. Add two googly eyes and add a small triangle for the nose.
Top it off with some whiskers and it is done. The whiskers here are made out of left over yellow grass from my daughter’s Easter basket last year. Improvisation at its finest here!
JACK-O-LANTERN & FRANKENSTEIN PUZZLE
GHOST, MUMMY, PUMPKIN STICKS
These were the EASIEST Halloween craft to make! For the pumpkin, paint a large stick orange. Once that dries, paint a face.
For the ghost, paint a large stick white and you guessed it, paint the face.
For the mummy, first paint a large Popsicle stick black. Then lightly paint uneven stripes of white. After the paint settles, glue on some small googly eyes.
These make really great bookmarks too!
HALLOWEEN CRAFT WITCH LEGS
Here’s what you’ll do for the witch legs:
With two small Popsicle Sticks, paint stockings on them with your desired colors. Then, cut out small skirts in whatever shape you wish. Glue the sticks to the skirt.
As that is drying, cut out little shoes and glue them to the bottom of the legs.
That’s it. They are complete. How’d yours come out?
FUNNY HALLOWEEN MONSTERS
These monster Halloween crafts were SO MUCH fun! Your kiddo can design them however they wish with as many googly eyes as their heart desires.
Get our your line of sticks and again glue a horizontal one to the back so they stay in place. Flip it over and have your little one paint them whatever color they wish. While they are doing that, cut out some teeth and a mouth.
Ask them how many eyes they want and help them glue them into place.
This one was Halloween craft sugar skull is MY favorite! There’s something about the sugar skull’s that I just love! Perhaps its the colors or the design, but I think they are beautiful.
I also could not believe how easy this was to make! Gather 5 large Popsicle sticks and lay them out evenly. On the back side, be sure to glue a piece to the back for security.
Then, paint a skull face. What is so great about sugar skulls is that you can pick out whatever color and really just go crazy with it! I can’t wait to see your finished skull!
We couldn’t NOT do a unicorn. If you have girls, you know how it goes. It’s a unicorn party here! What, what?!
So here it goes. Glue a triangle out small Popsicle sticks and paint those sticks white. Use a white foam sheet for the backing and then glue it on.
From there, you’ll cut out a hair piece, a small pointed oval shape (for the ear) and of course a triangle for the horn. Glue all of these on your triangle piece. Top it off with a googly eye and your magical being is done.
I know you will have a blast making these Halloween and Fall Popsicle stick crafts! They are super fun to make for the entire family!
Share your creations with me when you are done. I know my daughter will really enjoy seeing them! Don’t forget to share the love!
