Happy Haunting Halloween

Highlight hallowed hallways and have fun creating a frightening or festive fall fridge. Start early to decorate for this de-light-ful holiday. Each day add another new handmade item to your home, and by Halloween night you'll be ready for knocks at the door!

Drape the Doors, Swag the Windows

Cover orange and white streamers in Halloween-themed pictures of black cats, witches, brooms, and Jack o' Lanterns, using Crayola® Washable Markers. Hang streamers from the ceiling, in open doorways, and across windows. Decorate the streamers with Crayola® Halloween Mini-Stampers. Or create a Creepy Spider Web Doorway.

Calling All Scarecrows

Decorate paper bags to build a scarecrow and decorate using Crayola® Gel FX Crayons, Markers, and Metallic Crayons. Stuff the bags with crumpled newspaper. Tie bags with recycled ribbon. Cut the top part of the face bag with Crayola® Scissors to make hair. Curl it around a crayon. Parade your scarecrow along a stair banister, down a hall, across the table, or wherever it will be out of the way but in sight.

Festoon the Fridge!

Use craft paper or cut up several paper grocery bags and glue together to make a refrigerator-door size poster. There's room for the whole family to add favourite Halloween images with Crayola® Washable Markers and Crayola® Coloured Pencils. Hang the poster on the fridge with magnets. Or use Model Magic to make a Halloween Scene.

Design Dancing Ghosts

Colour several coffee filters with Crayola® Washable Markers. Place the filters on newspaper and spritz with water to blend colours (to look like tie-dye). Dry. Stuff the middle with half a crumpled facial tissue and gather the filter around it to make a head. Tie colourful recycled ribbon around the neck. Glue string to the top of each ghost's head with Crayola® School Glue. When dry, hang the ghost family from ribbon or yarn and drape over the curtain rod, doorway, or entrance.

Create Original Halloween Costumes and Masks

Who wants to wear a copy-cat costume or mask? Instead, create your own imaginative trick-or-treat gear.

Scare Up a Quick Costume

Going trick-or-treating? A quick costume is no problem. Just find a worn-out light-coloured shirt. Decorate it with Crayola® Washable Markers. You're ready to party! Need a different costume the next day? Wash out the first design, and create another one! For details on how to do check out Wash & Wear Art.

Fright-free Fantasy Masks

Very young children are often reluctant to wear masks over their faces. They often feel more comfortable if they create their own masks. Have them decorate paper plates with friendly faces using Crayola® Markers or Crayons. Help them cut out eyes with Crayola® Scissors. Attach with string. Or some children feel better holding their masks, so glue large craft sticks onto the masks' bottoms. Voila! Make this friendly Fantasy Masks your child can feel comfortable with.

The Costume's in the Bag

Use a paper grocery bag to make a vest or costume. Cut the bag with Crayola® Scissors from the center of the open edge to the middle of the bottom. On the bottom, make a neck hole. On each side, cut arm holes. Turn inside out to hide the writing. Decorate with Crayola® Washable Markers and Glitter Glue. Create any costume that suits your fancy...from Outer Space Outfits to a personal plump pumpkin.

Make a Magical Mask

Shape white or coloured Crayola® Model Magic® into a face-size mask. Use your imagination to create a gorilla, alien, storybook character, or any other creature. Sculpt horns, hair, ears, and details with the modeling compound. Poke a hole on each side and insert elastic to hold the mask on ears. Cut out eye holes with Crayola® Scissors. Bunch up newspaper in a face shape and lay your mask on it to dry. Add colour with Crayola® Washable Kid's Paint. When dry, tie elastic through the holes, and you're ready to trick-or-treat!
