Preschool Halloween Crafts and Learning Activities

Holidays create a fun opportunity to incorporate crafting and learning activities into preschool. We had a great combination of both crafts, science and learning activities this past week shared from our Creative Preschool Collaborator Group and I’m excited to showcase them here in case you missed any of them.

For our activity we combined scissor cutting practice by cutting up orange straws into a textured Pumpkin Jack-o-Lantern Craft.  I always love when we are able to incorporate a learning aspect into our crafts.

Here are the Preschool Halloween Posts from our creative preschool buddies:

Amanda from Artsy Momma and her kids conducted a preschool science activity by self-inflating balloons into monsters and Frankenstein. Be sure to head over to see how to set up this fun experiment. They also reinforced fine motor skills and counting by adding googly eyes to Monster Printables. 

Pink Stripey Socks and her son had fun trying out a fun new painting technique while creating this darling Halloween Ghost Splat Art. Kids are sure to have a blast with this awesome splat painting technique!


Handmade Kids Art shows us how to create a not so scary Owl Halloween Craft for Kids out of coffee filters. Make sure to check out the great list of owl books for preschoolers included in their post!


Katie from A Little Pinch of Perfect and her kids made this 5 Little Pumpkins Count and Sing Craft that even lights up in the dark. Such a fun way to practice counting! They also created a Halloween Weaving Decoration and showed us how to play a Create a Pumpkin Play Dough Game. There was lots of learning going on in their activities full of sensory, fine motor, counting and creating!
