Instructions for your Halloween craft
1. First print out your Halloween silhouettes, cut them out, and trace them onto cardstock. We used a combo of black and white cardstock but you can choose what color paper works best for you.
2. If you want to try and keep the paint splatter contained, you can try putting your paper into a shallow box while kids paint. Even with the boxes, we had some paint on the floor. Having the kids wear a painting smock and putting down some newspaper is also a good idea.
3. Set up your paint trays, paint, and paintbrushes. I like to use one paintbrush for each color, that way it cuts down on the paint mixing together and becoming a muddy mess.
4. Let the kids have fun with splatter painting! One splatter paint technique that I like is to tap the brush with your finger (like in the picture above). But with splatter painting, anything goes, so let the kids experiment and see what they like best.
5. Once you are done with the splatter painting, you want to let the silhouettes dry completely. It’s a good idea to take them out of the box to dry, otherwise, as the paint dries they might get stuck to the box.
6. After your silhouettes are dry, it’s time to make your Halloween banner. Take your neon-colored paper and your circle template, trace your circles, and then cut them out.
7. Next, you want to lay everything out on the table or the floor for how you want your banner to look. When you are happy with the placement of things, you can string it together.
8. Use a hole punch to make your holes and string your Halloween banner together.
We had so much fun splatter painting and using neon colors for this activity. Splatter painting is such a great process art activity for kids.
