Halloween doesn’t have to be scary. It can be sweet and cute like our Easy Paper Witch Craft. I love her rosy cheeks, jeweled wart on the end of her nose and glittery black hat.

This craft is all about using and being creative with the materials you have available at home or laying around the class room.

Perhaps you have some leftover wrapping/packing paper? Buttons, yarn or random sequins that could benefit from some love, and bring this paper witch to life!

Our witch is a mixed media project consisting of yarn, newspaper, stock card, patterned paper and glitter, and is perfectly open-ended enough for your kids to create their own spin.

If you don’t have yarn or fancy paper, perhaps the hair could be replaced with your Arty Crafty Kids handprint.

The newspaper could be painted with watercolours or not, and maybe your kids would like to plat the hair of their witch?

With so many options, I wonder what direction your kids will take…
