Such a fun Halloween craft today! Remember our Holiday themed Christmas toddler craft we did last year? Probably not. Here it is just in case.
We did a Halloween version of it with just a few basic craft supplies
Use a white paper/Styrofoam plate and paint the edges. If you use a paper plate, washable paints would be better. Styrofoam plate needs acrylic paints.
The kids can paint the edges using any color ( Hallowwen themed color if you prefer) Once the edges dry, set out googly eyes of various sizes. Have the kids glue the eyes to the edges. Cut out the edge before or after the eyes are glued on. Cutting out the rim before any gluing would be ideal.
Gluing the googly eyes to the paper plate is a wonderful fine motor exercise. You can also encourage the kid to follow a pattern or leave it as it is. Anything goes. Trying to keep the activity as open ended as possible or for reluctant learners, this will be good chance to get them to explore patterns, counting etc.
Let them dry for bit..
Cut the rim out and make the actual wreath. Punch a hole on the top and weave through a decorative Halloween themed ribbon.
Hang it and enjoy!
