My daughter had a very busy week. This week she had soccer practice, swim lessons and her first acting class. The week must have tired her out because when the weekend came, she asked if she could have a pajama craft day. How could I say no to that. A pajama craft day sounded fantastic. We have a younger friend of the family that loves craft time at our house, so we invited her over for pajama craft day as well.
They wanted to do something Halloween themed. My daughter said that she wanted to make ghosts and mummies. I wanted to keep it simple for our younger friend, so we made what we dubbed “Splat Painting”. It was not quite a splat, but more of a free form painting turned into a cute Halloween craft.
The kids used acrylic paints and painted onto their pieces of paper. They painted white for ghosts, black for black cats, orange for pumpkins.
They sprinkled glitter over their paintings because they found my glitter stash and kids just love glitter.
We cut simple shapes out of construction paper for each of our creations. The girls glued the shapes and googly eyes over each of their paintings to form their Halloween creatures.
Here are some of the creations that we came up with. How cute are these?
The girl’s did a great job with their paintings. These were so much fun to watch them make.
