Posted by Shelley Gray on October 9, in art projectsfallHalloween With Halloween just around the corner, it is time to start looking for the Halloween art activities that will keep your little angels engaged while on a major sugar-high. I searched high and low on my new addiction, Pinterestand found some great Halloween art projects that I would love to share with you!

This one comes from the All Kids Network and looks fantastic for younger students. There are great instructions on this site for how to paint the pumpkin seeds without having them move all over the place! They recommend using pumpkin seeds for this project…perhaps you could integrate some math skills in there too working with the number ?!

This next one is an adorable toilet paper roll bat and comes from the website Child Care Days. Again, this project is great for young students and simply involves a bit of painting, tracing and cutting.

The only supplies that you would really need to go out and buy are the paper bags, otherwise you should have everything in your classroom already. I love the puppet ideas in the picture below, but you could also allow your students to design their own Halloween puppet!

This final art project is simply amazing! When I first saw it, I was sure that it must have been made by grade 5 or 6 students, but as I read more I realized that Grade 2 students created these!!

These Picasso monsters come from a fantastic blog called Mrs. You can click here for wonderful step-by-step instructions and lots of pictures for this Picasso-inspired project.
