Awesome Halloween Art For Kids Is A Must Have For the Season! There Is Nothing Young Kids Love More Than Messy Projects That Allow For Creativity and Fun. This Monster Eyes Silly Craft Is Easy Enough For Young Kids But Also Fun For Older Kids Too.
There is something great about abstract art for kids. I mean most young kids pretty much do abstract art on all of their projects (well at least mine do), but it’s super fun to watch them be creative when they know that they have the freedom. The kids had a great time with this activity.
Like any of my kids projects, this particular craft took about 10 minutes to set up and has medium difficulty. I also took time to help guide my kids just a little bit, then allowed them to do what they wanted with the colors and decorating.
I hope you enjoy the craft and please leave a comment if you have any questions after checking out the setup!

Halloween Art For Kids
Halloween Art Project Materials
- Large roll of Brown Paper. I usually buy three or four at a time because they can be used for sooo many things but you can get thicker rolls online here.
2. Washable Paint for Kids- My favorite brand is Crayola washable paint.
3. I use paint tape to hold the brown paper down AND on the white canvas because it comes up easy and doesn’t leave residue behind.
4. White thin Canvas for painting.
6. Goggly Eyes
8. Craft Tray
9. A bowl for the water, paintbrushes, and napkins to wipe off the paint brushes.

Halloween Arts and Crafts Setup
1. Gather all materials! These are super fun and messy materials so this step is important to do alone if possible!
2. Prepare an area with butcher paper or some sort of barrier. Again, he paint and glitter is messy! Also use this time to prepare the canvas with strips of tape. Later you will pull the tape once the paint and glitter dries.
3. Allow the kids to start painting their hearts out! Save the glitter and other supplies for the next step.
4. Add the glitter glue!
5. Add the eyes, beads, and whatever else you can think of to add!
6. Allow your child’s art to dry thoroughly.
7. Remove the paint tape from the canvas.
