Today I'm sharing some super simple, last minute halloween craft ideas for the kids. Create these cute little halloween characters using dessert plates from the dollar store and short list of supplies that includes:
Cut out the various shapes you'll need to piece together the bat, pumpkin and frankenstein. I used black craft foam for lots of the pieces but you could use black cardstock if that's what you have available. Black felt worked well for Frankenstein's lovely hair. For younger children I like to have all the pieces cut out ahead of time so they can just have fun glueing everything to their plates. Older children will enjoy doing the cutting themselves or even adding the faces using markers.
For the bat you will need a little bit of white craft paint which isn't pictured in the supply photo above. Paint the bats mouth first so it can dry then add the wings, ears and finish up with some googly eyes + of course his fangs. Create the rest of your paper plate halloween characters as illustrated above.
Have fun crafting with the kiddos and for more simple, kid-friendly Halloween ideas
