Liquid Watercolor Haunted Houses

And other fantastic creepy creations

If you're celebrating Halloween with lots of crafting this year, try this cool project from Art Projects for Kids. You only need a few ingredients to paint these simple yet bright and eye-catching haunted houses on coffee filters. We've done this a couple of times and I always love how it turns out. We've also tie-dyed it with markers and alcohol to make some incredible designs--and not just for Halloween but for other holidays, too. Try some red and green designs on a drawn wreath for Christmas!

For smaller kids, you can also help them develop fine motor skills by letting them cut out shapes and arrange them into geometric haunted houses. Use glitter glue and googly eyes for embellishments. White or pastel gel pens on a black background also make a big impact.

What kinds of Halloween crafts are you up to this week? Share them in the chat!
