First up~the spider...The kids pick out the colors of construction paper they want. They cut out a body in one color then draw, color, cut and paste, etc. a face. Then pick a color and cut 8 legs. Then they do the accordion fold on the legs. Glue them on..WA-LA a spider!!!
(I have to say...this one was my favorite last year)!!
I let the kids pick a place and hang it up. We also do it with our ghosts...not the most classic or beautiful or exciting decorations, but the kids love to see them up all month long!
Here are the ghosts..All you need is white paper plates (2 per kid) and white streamers. Then you can use things to draw a face or construction paper to cut and paste one onto one plate. Next they cut out streamers..most of mine did about 6, then glue them onto the back of the plate. We have our plates upside down so the face is on the bottom of the plate and the streamers are glued to the top of the plate. Finally glue the other plate into the other one..upside down again so they are stuck together, not so it's ballooned out. This just helps keep those streamers in place! And there's your ghost!!!
Again~super easy, fun, and the kids love them!!
Here's one I found at Domestic Charm and I can't wait to do them this year!
