halloween crafts

As you start prepping your kiddo’s Halloween costumes keep the crafty fun going with a few holiday puppet projects. These are easy art activities that kids of all ages and stages can try. And bonus, these also double as pint-sized pretend play friends.

What types of puppets can your child create? Check out these Halloween holiday ideas!

Paper Bag Puppets

Reuse lunch-sized or larger shopping bags, turning them into ghosts, ghouls, witches, vampires, monsters and much more. Flatten the bag, turn it so that the flap face up and to the top and bring out the markers. Your child can draw a face onto the flap and decorate the rest of the bag as the puppet’s body. Add construction paper arms, a hat or adorn the puppet with fabric, glitter, sequins or craft feathers. After the puppet play is over, open the bag and use it for trick-or-treating.

Simple Stick Puppets

Turn a paper plate into a witch’s face, a mummy’s head or a ghastly ghost. Use paints, markers and crayons to decorate the Halloween face puppet. Tape a wide craft stick to the back to complete the craft. If your child is looking for another option, cut out flying bats or pumpkins and tape them to the craft sticks too.

Sock Puppets

Reuse old socks, turning them into Halloween-themed puppets. Paint the top of the sock or use fabric markers. Your child can choose from a cast of Halloween characters, such as a living pumpkin, Frankenstein, vampire bat, ghost or witch.
