We do this so that crafting with your kids is actually do-able, even when life is hectic.

Halloween Printables Activities Instructions
Step 1: Use the Free Halloween Printables
- Choose a Halloween scene (or several) from the free Printables available. There are 10 Halloween printables activities available to choose from.
- Then print your Halloween printables crafts. It works best if you print onto cardstock, but regular printer paper works fine too.
*If you do not have access to a printer, just draw your own Halloween scene.
Step 2: Add Fingerprints
- Choose some Halloween paint colors and squeeze a bit of each onto a paper plate.
- Decide what designs you are going to make as you look at your Halloween printables.
- Then dip your fingers and/or thumb into the paint colors and make marks on your Halloween craft project where you will create your characters.
- Give the paint a minute to dry.
Step 3: Finish Off Your Halloween Craft
- Once the paint has dried, go back with your markers and add details to the fingerprint and thumbprints you have placed to finish off your Halloween craft.
