Halloween Crafts For Kids Glowing Jack O’ Lantern Ghost Tutorial
I promised the other day when I posted the Halloween Black Bat Tutorial that I’d put up more Halloween Crafts For Kids, yes? Well, here I am, posting away! Ethan has been having an awesome time helping make the house look fun for Fall! Here in Las Vegas, the leaves don’t change colors, it’s still pretty warm and you have to really pull out all the stops to get ‘that feeling’! We’ve been up to our elbows in crafts for kids, baking up Fall favorite recipes and having a blast. Totally worth it! And, he got to use spray paint again. Winning! Today, we’re bringing you this Glowing Jack O’ Lantern Ghost Tutorial he helped make! Want to see how we did it?
Halloween Crafts For Kids Glowing Jack O’ Lantern Ghost Supplies:
We picked this Halloween crafts because crafts s can also be a lesson in upcycling! Don’t throw away those empty plastic milk jugs! The More you collect, the longer your line will be! Also, at Christmas you can do the same and make snowmen! You’ll have to wait a couple months and we’ll bring that out!
A real quick search on Pinterest or Google will give you plenty of cute stencils to pick from! We saved some so we can use them when it’s time to carve Pumpkins too! Do you bake up the seeds from your pumpkins? One of our favorites snacks. Makes going through all that goop worth it!
Always use spray paint in a well ventilated area! Peeuuu, those fumes are so stinky! Supervise the small frys too. Sometimes, they try to spray paint their brand new bikes. That is not cool! Not that anyone
Ethan here tried to do that or anything.
We bought the orange box of string lights so when it was dark, they glowed with full on Fall colors! Use white ones you have in that box out in the garage. Or, try glow sticks! We made that Glowing Wishes Jar with those. The glow lasted over-night. Also, we found that if you cut the hole close to the top of your milk jug, it looks way cooler. The lights don’t just sit on the bottom of the jugs.
Now, string them all together. The end with the plug, make that hole in the bottom of the last jug. If it’s super windy where you live, go and grab a handful of rocks and throw them in as well! Don’t need these blowing all over the neighborhood now do we?
We brought them outside, plugged those babies in and lit up the sidewalk! You can keep them squished together if you’re able to save up quite a bit too! Ethan drinks milk like a kitten so we’ll be adding a ton more by Halloween!
We also stretched them out a bit to see how awesome that would look! Our driveway is pretty long. I’m thinking even after we add more empty milk jugs, we’ll leave them stretched out! I hope we have enough to line both sides of the driveway and sidewalk with these cool Halloween Crafts For Kids!
