Looking for ways to use all those popsicle craft sticks? You can make these cute pumpkin faces. All you need is sticks, glue and orange and black paint. Whether you make these jack-o’-lantern scary or sweet, this is a fun craft you can do just in time for Halloween. You can even add magnets to display these on your refrigerator.

Halloween just wouldn’t be the same without spiders, and these spiders couldn’t be easier to craft. All you need are some paper plates, paint, string and a hole punch to make these amazing arachnids.
Since you already have those paper plates and paint from your spider craft, your kids can also make these colorful owls. A cleverly cut plate becomes your wings.

Now, share that with your kids as you create these amazing marbled leaves. All you need is paint and shaving cream – and those perfect leaves, of course. Once the leaves are dry, you can use them for so many other projects.

Your kids will be having so much fun, they won’t even know they’re improving their hand-eye coordination and motor skills with ths fun project.
It’s fall and you simply can’t have enough corn. This wonderful wreath is made using paint and bubble wrap. Paint big sheets of paper or posterboard with a combination of colors and use the bubble wrap to recreate the look of corn.
