Hello and Happy Halloween Season! I signed up to be a Room Parent again this year, which includes planning the Halloween Party. However, this year (and last year, but we were virtual-schooling) is different from the other years I was Room Parent. This year, we are allowed to plan the party, but we can’t be present during it. Which leaves Harlow’s poor teacher having a party with 20 kids on her own, when in previous years, we had AT LEAST three Room Parents helping out with the stations. So, I decided to make the craft station as easy as I could for her, so there wasn’t a lot of cleanup or mess. (Mostly. Every party needs glitter, right?)
For the kids first craft station, they will have their choice between making a Frankenstein sun catcher, or a Jack-O-Lantern sun catcher. I have pre-cut all the pieces on my Cricut, so there won’t be paper shrapnel everywhere, and the tissue paper is held in by clear contact paper. Just glue (or hole punch) the string on, and you have adorable sun catchers!
The next one might get a little messy, but still fairly clean and adorable. Witches Brew! Basically you throw whatever you have lying around on the top of the pre-cut cauldron and you get an adorable potion!
For ease, I pre-cut all the parts and pieces for the kids, and separated them out, but if you have more time or help, it would be fun for the kids to cut their own pieces out!
