Are you a schoolteacher and looking for fun and easy crafts for your classroom? Below I will show you how to make a Halloween Wreath, that not only will the kids love doing, but moms as well.
You will need:
Paper Plates (You will need 1 per person doing this Halloween Craft Project)
Leaves (Lots of leaves or all shapes, sizes and colors)
Orange Construction Papers
White Construction Paper
Black Construction Paper
Washable Black Marker
Black Yarn (optional)
If this will be a solo project for the children, a few things need to be done prior to the kids taking over. This should be done before you start actually making the wreath.
You will need to cut the center of each paper plate, before you give them out to the children. This will make your base to the wreaths.
The next step can be done in a few different ways, you can have the children gather leaves at home or you can take the children outside to gather leaves.
Make sure to get all different colors, shapes, and sizes. You should collect enough leaves to cover each paper plate. Once you have done this you, can head back inside and have the children glue their leaves onto their paper plates. Have fun with this; there is never a wrong way when you are having fun. After everyone has glued their leaves on their plates, let them dry for at least 24 hours.
After the leaves have dried, now it is time to become creative. Have the children make fun Halloween images with the construction paper. Some ideas are, orange for the pumpkins, use markers to make faces on them.
White construction paper can be used to make bones, mummies, and spooky ghosts.
Black construction paper, can be used to make witches hats, cats, and whatever other creative Halloween item the children can think of.
After the children have made everything, they would like to decorate their wreaths with, cut out the images, so they can glue them to their wreaths.
Remember the main thing is to have fun.
