Kids see Halloween everywhere - in the stories read at circle time; in the costumes and candy displayed at the shopping mall; in special games played at the class party.

Providing opportunities for creative art projects will allow kids to reflect on what they experience at Halloween time, extending language experiences and supporting cognitive and fine motor skills.

3. Glue craft sticks to construction paper to make a fence.

  • Give kids the option of other colors for the background such as purple or dark blue.
  • Support kids ideas for using the craft sticks, such as building a bridge instead of a fence.


4. Glue tree, ghost and pumpkin cut-outs to the construction paper.


This Halloween Night art activity is easy to set up and needs little instruction. The fence is a good starting point to spark creativity.

Kids will be strengthening creative and fine motor skills as they cut and glue, design layouts, and choose cut-outs for their pictures.
