Easy Halloween Paper Plate Arts & Crafts Idea

easy halloween paper plate arts and crafts idea title

Since I won’t be able to share our Halloween costume on time because we won’t be wearing it until tonight, in the spirit of Halloween, I decided to share an easy arts and crafts that my kids and I did last weekend using paper plate. We did two – one for my daughter and one for my son but my daughter pretty much did all the work for my son’s craft. I know he still doesn’t appreciate all these arts and crafts activities but it’s still fun to let him be a part of it.

I am not a very artsy person and have started doing arts and crafts only because of my kids so please excuse if they’re not perfect. Though I honestly think that the more imperfect these kids crafts look, the more fun memories you’ll get out of it (nice excuse huh).

Paper Plate Witch:

  • Trace your kid’s hands on the orange construction paper and cut it out (you need 2).
  • Cut up the green construction papers into squares (any size will do but the bigger the better).
  • Trace a circle on the orange construction paper and cut it out (you need 2).
  • Trace a semi-circle on the orange construction paper and cut it out (you need 1).
  • Cut a triangle from the black construction paper for the witch’s hat; then a small rectangle from the same construction paper for the bottom of the witch’s hat.
  • Guide your child to get one green square paper at a time, put a glue on it, and stick it on the paper plate. Repeat this until the entire paper plate is covered with green squares.
  • Once the paper plate is covered with the green squares, it’s time to glue the eyes (2 orange circles) and lips (orange semi-circle) on.
  • Glue your child’s hands at the top of the face to serve as the witch’s hair.
  • Glue the witch’s hat on the top of the hair to finish it off.

    Even though today is Halloween, I’m still going to do this craft with my little one! I was such a bad mom and didn’t do any pumpkin related crafts, and pumpkins are festive all autumn long – looking forward to doing this : )

      Awww! Don’t say that! I’m sure there’s a good reason why you weren’t able to get to crafting with your little one. I hope your kid enjoys this. 🙂
