Thrifty Crafts for Kids

Mummy craft

A fun mummy craft perfect for kids and adults.

Not many supplies are needed to throw together this simple mummy craft, but, it is a great craft for kids and adults. Do it together for a fun craft day when the fall weather is too brisk to go outside. I made mine in an 8×10 size, so you can add it in a frame and share year after year.

You will need:

Brown or black paper (construction or cardstock)

white printer paper

distressing ink *optional

googly eyes

glue stick

Begin tearing your paper into strips. I like them to be “messy” but you can rip your paper more carefully for a more clean look. Once you have some strips torn you will want to distress them. Ink pads are great for this, because you can just rub it across the ripped edge for a nice aged look.

I also chose to cut my paper down. I wanted the strips of paper to go all the way to the ends without the edges showing. So I cut my paper to an 8×10 size, leaving some overhang when I glued down the strips.

Now glue your strips down onto the paper starting at one end. Be sure to leave a small space where you will glue your googly eyes so they can peek out. Once I was done with that, I simply trimmed off the edges that hung over my paper giving it a straight edge.

I think it is a perfect, easy, Halloween craft perfect for any age.

 Thought I would re-post this How To Make a TuTu video for those of you looking for a Frugal Halloween idea.

How to make a tutu, easy DIY Halloween costumes, #Tutu, #DressUpClothes

With Halloween just around the corner and the idea of being thrifty still nagging at your shoe strings, what should you do? Well one idea is what our little Maleeya came up with last Halloween was an “evil princess”. So we made some cute pom pom hair clips and a super easy wrap around Tutu that just took a few minutes to make! You can even order the Tulle online and get it shipped right to your door.

As you can see from the photos of my kids this post is from a few years ago.  This happened to pull up on my facebook timeline as a memory from the past.  I had totally forgotten about this adorable Hand Print Spider Card .  Pretty sure we will have to make these again.  Most of us are not a fan of spiders.  Yet  I am pretty sure any parent or grandparent will smile when they see this cute lil  Hand Print Spider Card in the mail.

These are also low cost, which is nice if you are going to do them for a school craft.  Or maybe a girls scout or boy scout Halloween craft project.

We sat down to make some fun Halloween cards with the kids.  They are simple but oh so cute and the kids had a blast making them!

You will need for your  Hand Print Spider Card 

  • Glue
  • Wiggly Eyes
  • Black Ink (washable) or Black washable marker
  • Black Sharpie marker
  • White card stock
  • Halloween themed scrap book paper

This works best with little hands (or larger kids make Finger Print Spider Card).  First cut the white card stock to the size you would like.  Next ink your child’s hand with black ink and press it down on the paper towards the bottom of the card.  If you do not have stamp pad you can use a black washable marker. Quickly cover their palm with the ink, then press it onto the paper. Use a sharpie marker to draw in the web and lettering.  Glue on to pattern paper and glue on wiggly eyes at the end!

On a side note make sure you are using washable ink…. I used permanent ink by mistake and my little guy ran around with a black hand the rest of the week….lol.

I first posted these Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween, a few years ago. We have made them every year since then. We have improved or changed the recipe or creation process a little. So I thought I would update the post and share the new and improved version of our Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween with you. Printable version below.

Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween

Are you looking for a fun treat idea to bring to your kids school or a Halloween party?  My mother-in-law made these for my kids and they absolutely adored them. In fact 6 year old squealed with joy when she opened the lid of the donut box and saw these looking back at her.

I love that anyone can make these, but they turn out so cute every time. We have made them with Krispy Kreme donuts as well as bakery donuts, they all work. You just have to make sure they have a hole in the middle to put the teeth in.  Last year was the first time I made them with chocolate and maple frosting and they still turned out!  SO do not stress if you can not find glazed donuts. In fact I think the colored teeth add a little character to the plate.  My kids call the ones with colored fangs, Monsters and the ones with clear teeth Vampires.

All you need is:

 Vampire Donuts A Quick and Easy Treat For Halloween Directions:

Squish the vampire teeth together and press them into the middle of the donut hole. Pick your eyes, Chocolate chips, M&M’s or Candy Eyes and press them into the donut.  Simple as that you have a treat that is sure be a hit! Really even my 6 year old could make these, and they would still turn out cute!
