This post is being republished from October 2013 and is the perfect halloween crafts for kids idea. Kids of any age can make this halloween crafts for kids Glowing Water Jug Pumpkins with adult supervision and assistance.
What you will need; permanent makers, orange glow sticks, water jugs.
Miss Ki didn’t want to take part in this fun craft idea, but all of the other children had fun creating their own pumpkin faces.
While this was a super fun activity to do as a family, we found that the water jug pumpkins were looking best on one night outside. The glow sticks we used simply were not enough light to keep them glowing as bright as day one. Just glad we were able to do something altogether as a family that was fun and each child put their own creativity into their own water jug pumpkin.
Basically you have fun taking all of the supplies referenced above drawing on the water jugs, insert rocks or water in the button of the jug to ensure they don’t blow away while on display outside your front door and then insert the glow stick or other item that can make it glow and voila!
There you have it, a low cost, creative halloween crafts for kids addition for your holiday crafting pleasure.
