Every year as Halloween comes around my children get super excited, not just for the day itself but the whole build up. From pumpkin picking to baking spooky treats, we love to get stuck in, and yet the children’s favourite thing to do is always our Halloween crafts! I’ll be honest with you, I’m not a natural when it comes to thinking up ideas and so I tend to use ready prepared craft kits with all of the materials and full instructions. And this year we have been loving the Halloween range from Cotton Twist.
Cotton Twist have a fun range of nostalgic, chic, simple and satisfying crafts made from a range of raw materials. Their crafts are carefully designed to spark learning & play in a fun & imaginative way.
I love the Make Your Own Day of the Dead Mask kit, and Make Your Own Bat Mask, both priced at just £2.65 which is amazing value and perfect for Halloween costumes.
For parents who lack the time, or inspiration, to shop for materials and search for ideas, these kits are perfect and so easy to follow.
The Make Your Own Halloween Fright Lights, priced at £9.95, is a creative and imaginative kit which comes with four frightening tea lights for decorating the doorstop or window sill. Children can add the pre-cut shapes and googly eyes to the battery operated tea light bases with provided glue dots, switch the lights to on, then watch the Halloween characters flicker and frighten the scaredy cats away!
I also love these personalised Halloween Trick or Treat Tin, priced at £3.95, available in two spooky illustrated themes, are ideal for storing sweets secured on your Trick or Treating rounds. Alternatively, they make great favours for Halloween partygoers and there is an option to include chocolate pumpkins too! You cake them extra special by personalising with your choice of name and message.
