Grab your paper plates from the kitchen and create fun Halloween crafts! These make awesome decorations for this spooky time of the year! Weaving the yarn through holes in the paper plate is great for your child’s fine motor skills and will sure to keep them busy for a little while at least! 

Spider Web Craft 

Supplies:  

Paper plate 

Black yarn 

Black paper to create spider 

Scissors or Hole Punch 

Tape or Glue (for spider) 

  1. Use a hole punch around the edge of your paper plate. To make it easier, you could just cut slits in the paper plate. 

  1. Thread the black yarn in and out to create a “web”.  

  1. End your web at the same spot that you started it in. Tie the starting strand & end strand together to secure the yarn. 

  1. Add some spooky spiders! I cut them out using black paper. Cut rectangles for the legs and crinkle them. I created an oval for body and a heart to use for the head and either glue or tape it together. 

  

Mummy Craft 

Supplies: 

Paper plate 

White yarn 

Black marker for face 

Scissors or hole punch 

  1. Draw your Mummy’s face in black marker. 

  1. Cut about one-inch slits around the paper plate. You could use a hole punch instead of slits. 

  1. Thread white yarn in and out of slits. Slide the yarn between one of the slits and cross the yarn across the plate repeatedly until you achieve your desired look. 

  1. End your web at the same spot that you started it in. Tie the starting strand & end strand together to secure the yarn.
