Halloween is just around the corner. Let’s start preparing for ‘Trick or Treat’.

We don’t need to burn a hole in our pocket this festive season. Just DIY what we can. For this Halloween Goodie Bag, all we need is brown paper bag and black sugar paper.

DIY Halloween Trick or Treat Bag

First, draw any creepy Halloween features on the black sugar paper. Let your child cut it out. You may need to assist him/her if they are not ready to handle the scissors yet.

Apply glue to one side of the sugar paper.

Paste onto the brown bag. Decorate as you wish.

The Ghost Festival, also known as the Hungry Ghost Festival is a traditional Chinese festival celebrated by Chinese in many countries. According to the Chinese Calendar, the Hungry Ghost Festival falls on the 15th night of the seventh lunar month. It is believed, ghosts and spirits, including those of the deceased ancestors, come out from the lower realm on this day.

Are you afraid of GHOST? Taken from my Horror in Singapore Night Safari post

Keeping up with the ghostly season, we did a Hungry Ghost craft today.

I cut the edges of a paper plate so that it has sharp teeth all over

Cut a construction paper and paste the paper plate teeth on it.

Add eyes and the ghost is ready! I wanted to add splashes of red paint to make the ghost a very gory one but decided against it as I don’t wanna cause nightmares to the kids!

Introducing Jack

Introducing Jack

Alright, so Halloween is a couple of months away. But It’s never too early to start planning right? Instead of using the big and bulky pumpkin year in year out and throwing them away after a party, why not try using a smaller version? An orange. Kids will love them, adults will find them delicious!

Here's a fresh orange

Footprint Ghost Bookmark

Need a bookmark? Try making your very own footprint ghost bookmark. All you need are foam craft and googly eyes.
The ghost is best done on white craft foam. I did not have any white craft foam at the time of doing this, so I settled with yellow foam instead. Trace the outline of your foot onto the foam. Cut it out. Paste the googly eyes and decorate it.
Cut a small slit slightly below the mouth.
Your footprint ghost bookmark is done!
Quick and easy!
