It’s that time of year again where our crafts turn black, purple and orange as we prepare for the spooky Halloween season! We’ve hand-picked some easy peasy projects to make ready for a party, or to simply get involved with the occasion for trick or treaters. Whilst some of these crafts are better suited to adults, there’s plenty for the kids to get involved with, including super simple stamps and monster-themed treats.
These stamps are a fantastic way to celebrate the upcoming autumn season! Kids will be kept busy for hours printing works of art, experiment with different colours and even add faces!
