Halloween wouldn't be complete without witches in tall black hats and their flying broomsticks. We've made witches with paper shapes and a witch puppet with a wooden spoon. Now it's time to make the broomstick1

This one is simple to make with burlap and a wooden dowel. Kids will love pulling threads from burlap to make the 'straw' for the broom. This part of the process provides some awesome fine motor work as kids prepare the broomstick.

This craft is fun for the whole family. Only a few basic supplies are needed, and it's easy to adjust the style and size of the broomstick.

What could be more fun for pretend play than a broomstick?

Instructions for a broomstick craft


1. Cut piece of burlap approximately half as long as the dowel and 10 in. (25 cm) wide.

2. Unravel the burlap from the bottom to make the "bristles".

3. Leave a tab approximately 2 in. (5 cm), then unravel a few rows at the top as shown in the diagram.

4. Place the dowel on the burlap, slightly above the end of the fabric. Tape the edge of the burlap to the dowel. Roll the dowel across the burlap, layering the burlap over the dowel.

No witch should be left without a broom on Halloween night. Make this fun broomstick for a Halloween decoration or add it to a witch or sorcerer costume.

Say this little rhyme with your preschoolers as you 'fly' your brooms around the room.


We're Halloween witches, flying over ditches,
Sliding down the moon, as we sing this tune:
"Heigh-ho, Halloween's here!" (with a sing-songy voice)
