Paint a toilet roll black (make sure you paint the tops of the insides). Draw two wings and two small triangles on black cardboard and cut them out. Using a scalpel (an adult should do this part), cut two slits at the sides of the roll and slide the edges of the wings in. Make two more slits on both sides of the top of the roll and slide the triangles in to make the ears. Glue on some googly eyes and two small white triangles for the teeth. Cut two 8cm long pipe cleaners and stick to the inside of the roll at the bottom with sticky tape. Bend the ends of the pipe cleaners so you can hang the bats from things!
Don’t want to leave the house unattended while you’re out trick or treating? Hang this cute spider on your front door or gate and let the kiddies help themselves! Cut a paper plate in half, staple it together and paint it black. Feed black pipe cleaners through the cracks in the plates and secure them with staples to create the legs. Staple some string to each side of the plate to hand around your door knob. Cut out some eyes and a mouth from cardboard and glue them onto the middle of the plate. Stick a cute sign to the front legs with sticky tape and he’s ready to go!
Turn a simple pom pom decoration (you can buy these at your local craft store) into a grumpy spider you hand from trees or around your house. Cut out two eyes from white cardboard and stick them to the pom pom with sticky tape. Cut out two smaller circles from black cardboard and stick them onto the middle of the white cardboard. Cute out eight 20cm-long stripes of black cardboard. Bend them near the ends and then attach them to pom pom with sticky tape.
