1st Grade Halloween Crafts & Art Ideas

All teachers can agree that Halloween is CRAZY! Rather than fight the sugar highs, I embraced the crazy with my first graders! We channeled all of that excitement into fun Halloween crafts and art projects!

While the whole “knock on a stranger’s door and get some candy” is a little strange when you think about it, I do enjoy the fabulous art related to the holiday!

Spooky Silhouettes

Our 3rd-grade buddies helped us create these spooky silhouettes {Shoutout to KR for an awesome idea!}.  

First, the kids drew a scene in pencil, traced it over in sharpie, and finished off with some hole-punched eyes.  I {puffy} heart looking at these!

Double Spiders

We snuck in some learning AND art with Deirdre’s Facebook Fan freebie! The kids loved making these Doubles Spiders.

Spooky Skeletons Craft

We also snuck in time to make one of my ABSOLUTE favorite art projects! I think these spooky skeletons are perfect for Halloween & Dia de los Muertos!

To make, the kids sketch out a skull on white paper, tear out the skull and a “face” and glue on crepe paper streamers!
