Ghosts 👻, Goblins 👺, and Ghouls 👹! OH MY 😱!
Halloween is a BIG deal in our house. We go all out with costumes, parties, treats, and decorations! These painted rock faces are the perfect front porch pumpkin companion or non-candy treat for your little tricksters.
My kids are getting older and wanted to pick out their owns costumes, which is great – I encourage independence, but gone are the days of dressing my kids in funny family themed attire 😭. But, one thing that remains constant are the seasonal crafts!
This project is great for kids of all ages. It encourages creativity with paint and glue, allowing faces to be as simple or intricate as desired. It’s a great exercise to discuss the different faces of emotion and the feelings that go along with them. Or just about Halloween in general to give them a better understanding of the holiday and to reiterate that it is all about fun!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1. Paint rock solid color. Let dry.
2. Add scary or silly mouth on rock. Let dry.
3. Glue wiggle eyes to rock. Let dry.
If you are planning on using the rocks outside in the harsh elements, a stronger, more permanent adhesive should be used with parental assistance. Also, a clear coat will help prolong the life of the tempera paint.
This Silly Spider Bookmark is another fun and spooky Halloween craft, perfect for those tiny fingers! Also, you may want to brace your elves 😜, the holidays are right around the corner! Give the ones you love a handmade gift from the kids using the Holiday Hide and Seek Rock Painting Kit.
