Paula Ross: Hi! I am Paula from Andy’s Parties and we are going today show you how to run a great Halloween party for kids at your home. Right now we are going to talk about craft activities for kids. There are so many different craft activities you can do for Halloween parties but obviously the ones that are popular this time of the year, you have to do with pumpkins and Jack-o-lantern and trick-or-treating. So, I am going to show couple of different things. Obviously we talked about the Pumpkin Garland, when we talked about how to decorate your party space and how to get the kids involved with that. You can also use that as craft activities, get the kids to make some pumpkin garland to take home and then we can also decorate pumpkins. There are couples of different things you can do. You can use a real pumpkins or you can use craft pumpkins and this is made out of paper mache purchased at schools supplies store and for little kids, this is better. You can give them non toxic washable markers to decorate the paper pumpkins and they will be so excited about it and they will do a good job. The reason you don’t want give paint to paint on big pumpkins is because big pumpkins, real pumpkin don’t take washable paint. The washable doesn’t dry, it smears. It just doesn’t come out looking very nice. But the older kids can paint pumpkins using acrylic paint. You just need to warn them that the paint might get on their clothes and then it won’t washout. So, you give them paint smocks or something like that to wear. With this, we want to use real acrylic paint that’s not washable, so it will dry easily on pumpkins and we can decorate it and the acrylic paint goes on really well, so its easy for the kids to use. Some eyes, Jack-o-lantern nose, I’m not doing very good job here but you get the draft and we will make this a happy pumpkin. Lets wet this pumpkin, take a little tongue out of this, silly pumpkin and we give him some green stem here, some of that. There we go. So older kids can definitely paint on the pumpkins and they will come up crazy designs that will be very cute and you can use that but remember washable paint doesn’t work on pumpkin. So for little kids, you want to give them washable markers and they can do the same thing on the paper pumpkins or the craft pumpkins and they can draw their Jack- o-lantern faces, just like that and they will color the whole thing and make it very creative for themselves. Make sure you put their names on the bottom, so they remember whose is whose and they can take it home at end of the party and that’s how you make some crafts. Oh, I did forget. There are also some simple things you can get keep the kid occupied, I got this at a craft store. This is a Halloween door hanger activity and you can also use stickers to decorate just about anything under the sun, Halloween stickers and that about does it for our craft. So now we can talk about some party games.
