I need to find a halloween craft for about 26 kids of various ages for our moms group's halloween party this week. I was going to order from oriental trading but it's too late now. Anyone have any inexpensive ideas to share?

How about something simple and home made? Leaf etchings. Pick out a few pretty-shaped leaves outside. Go to Kikos and laminate each separately. Then, all you need is white paper and crayons. Place the paper over the leaf, and rub with a peeled crayon.

If you want to get really creative, you can have construction paper or cardboard pre-cut to fit around the white paper, and you can have decorate and then glue their picutres in "frames".

The nice thing about this is that even a young child can do this craft with some help.

What about making masks with paper bags?
Puppets with lunch bags?
Decorate pumpkins?
Decorating photo frame cards, and putting a picture of the kids in them?
Finger painting?

Check the Family Fun website. I can't wait until Jude is at a crafty age!

Going to Michaels or AC Moore may give you more ideas.
