Homemade Gooey Green Slime
The first of the homemade Halloween preschool crafts is Gooey Green Slime.
To make your green slime you will need:
- 2 Glass Bowls
- 1 1/2 cups of Warm Water
- 2 cups of Elmer's Glue
- Green Food Coloring
- 4 Teaspoons of Borax
- 1 1/3 cups of Warm Water1
Gather your ingredients and put everything on the counter or table where you will make your green slime.
- In the first bowl,combine the warm water, the Elmer's Glue and the food coloring.
- Take the second bowl and combine the 4 teaspoons of Borax along with 1 1/3 cups of warm water.
- Make sure the ingredients in both bowls dissolve.
- Without stirring or mixing...combine the first bowl into the second bowl.
- Lift out the flubber green slime!
Using glass bowls allows your children to see the ingredients and the chemical reaction when they are combined. You can store your Green Slime in Ziploc bags.
Hand Print Spider Another Halloween Preschool Crafts
To make a Hand Print Spider you will need the following materials:
- White Construction Paper
- Black Paint...get children's craft paint so it's safe
- Wiggle Eyes...2 per spider
Gather all your materials and here's what you will do with them.
Paint your child's four fingers and palm black.
- Don't put any paint on the thumb.
- You must press your child's hand onto the construction paper.
- Now do the next hand.
- When you press this hand on the paper let the palm prints on the paper overlap.
- The palm prints will become the spider's body.
- The finger prints on either side will become the spider's legs.
- Put glue on your wiggle eyes and place them in the front of the palm prints or the spider's body.
How does it look? You are all done, now, isn't that about the easiest Halloween preschool crafts idea you ever used?
Here's another very simple homemade Halloween preschool crafts idea...Spider Hat. What's great about these craft ideas for kids is that you can use them for your younger and your older children. They are fun for everyone...even you Mom!
Here's what you will need to make the Spider Hats:
- Black Construction Paper
- Scissors...safety scissors for the kids or let the adult in charge cut.
- Wiggle Eyes
Now here's how to make your Spider Hats:
- Cut the construction paper into strips.
- Staple the strips together so it will fit around your child's head. (You can also put tape over the staples so they can't scratch or use glue) This will be the body of the spider hat.
- Cut your remaining strips in half and let each child fold 8 of the strips in an accordion fashion. These are the spider's legs.
- Put glue on one end of the leg and attach it to the "body". The leg will hang down off the body.
- Put the other 7 legs onto the body using the glue.
- Let your glue dry.
- Now glue the wiggly eyes onto the front of your spider's body.
- Your spider hat is completed! Make sure to take a picture of your completed Spider Hats.

Foot Print Ghosts
Here is what you will need to make these homemade Foot Print Ghosts:
- Black Construction Paper
- Wiggly Eyes
- White Crafts Paint...make sure it's safe for your kids.
- A Tub or Pan or Container large enough to dip a foot in
- Black Marker
- Newspaper to line your floor
Gather together your crafting supplies and bring them to your work table. In my house our craft work table is our kitchen table covered with a plastic table cloth or newspaper...usually. When I make Foot Print Ghosts I put a piece of newspaper on the floor. I put my pan down there, and I also put my construction paper down there...along with some paper towels to wrap my child's foot in. Read the instructions so you will know how to "line" your work area!
Here's how to make your Foot Print Ghosts:
- Pour a little bit of paint into the container you've supplied.
- Dip your child's foot into the white paint.
- Press your child's foot onto the construction paper.
- Let the foot print dry.
- Clean off your child's foot.
- When the foot print is dry, glue on two wiggly eyes to the heel print part of the "ghost".
- Use the black marker to make eyes if you don't have the wiggly kind.
