Halloween Activities in the South West

Halloween Activities in the South West

Whether you take the kids Trick or Treating, organising your own events or have booked into an organised event there’s loads of Halloween Activities in the South West to take part in.

We went Trick or Treating for the first time last year. It’s not something that I would usually do but we were invited along with one of our neighbours and Isabelle had a lovely time. We stayed close to home and only went to houses with a pumpkin outside which seems to be an unwritten rule.

Wincy Spider Craft

Kids Crafts – Wincy Spider Craft

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

What you will need:

Paper Plates
Paper
String
Paint
Scissors
Sharp Pencil

This is really simple to make and great to save for a rainy day.

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

We made the spider first by covering our hands in our chosen colour of paint and printing on the paper using one hand, and then again after rotating the paper to get the spider legs.

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

Get your paper plate and cut out the middle. I used the sharp pencil to poke a hole so that I could get the scissors in.

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

Paint the back of the paper plate (the front of our plates were shiny).

Wait to dry.

Once everything is dry, use the sharp pencil to poke hole in around the paper plate where the string will be threaded. We based our holes on a clock face.

Kids Crafts - Wincy Spider

Put a bit of sellotape on the end of the string to make it easier to thread, and using the string create an intricate web.

Cut out your spider and attach to your web, using a hole punch in the top of the spider head and attach to the string to give it some dingle factor.

Hang wherever you like – This would make a great Halloween decoration.

Add a pic of your spiders in the comments or pop over to our Facebook page and share yours.
