Hanging Spiders and Spider Hats

Black construction paper, some paint, googly eyes, and paper plates -- oh, and glue. That's what you'll need to put these two projects together, then watch those spiders dangle from the ceiling and crawl on a band for your students' hats.

SCULPEY CANDY CORN MAGNETS & PHOTO HOLDERS


Make these adorable candy corn photo holders from sculpey clay, chenille stems, and permanent markers; do get some adult help with cutting tools when using the project with younger classes. You can also use the same pattern to make candy corn jewelry - a bracelet, necklace, earrings...

Dancing Skeletons

Lightweight Model Magic provides the secret ingredient for these jointed skeletons, which can dance, puppet-style, when completed.

Adjective Monsters


Create an adjective monster for Halloween! Find instructions here to develop a sculptured monster, or simply use word art to build a monster with adjectives in a collage or poster.
