Witch Activities Kids Will Love

When my son was little, he loved Halloween and the closer we got to the day the more ‘stuff’ he wanted to do. Crafts, snacks, colouring – he just wanted some fun Halloween activities as we got ready for the main event.

Halloween has always been a big deal in our house – ever since I was a kid too. To be fair, he does still love Halloween – it’s just crafting with mum is not exactly at the top of his priorities list now that he’s nearly 20 and working full time!

These easy witch activities are perfect with simple crafts they can make, some fun printables that mean you don’t need to spend all your time preparing and some really, really fun witch snacks for kids that I want to try out too.

Craft Supplies

Halloween comes but once a year, but it’s lasts the whole month on the Purple Pumpkin Blog with my annual series – Crafty October!

Back in 2012 when I first started this series, I shared a Halloween craft every day in October – which is where the name Crafty October came from. Over the years the series has evolved into more than crafts, with me sharing recipes, free printables, pumpkin carving templates, party ideas and more! I do sometimes sneak in some Autumn themed stuff too!

I do have some new stuff to share this year – yay! – but will also be sharing lots of roundups of ideas as well. I wish I could do it all, but these days, I just can’t… but my vision for this blog is to think up the ideas so that you don’t have to!

As with all of my roundups, there are ideas from my blog as well as from lots of fab blogs from around the world. I have made all of links to these witch activities for kids open in a new window so that you don’t lose your place in the list.

This paper plate witch is a good three dimensional craft with it’s egg box nose and is a fun way to practice scissor skills too.

This easy paper bag witch is great for using as a puppet!

This handprint witch craft is super cute and makes a great card to give at Halloween.

What kid doesn’t love colouring? You can find a great free witch colouring page here – along with some more fun Halloween colouring pages.

This rick rack witches hat would be a fun project for kids or adults.

I’m a little bit in love with these witches broom snacks – they’d be great for a Harry Potter themed party too!

Rainy Day Mum has lots of Halloween rhymes and songs for kids including a witch rhyme.

This DIY Winnie The Witch costume would be great to make together for Trick or Treating and you can use it for World Book Day too (gotta love it when you can use stuff again!)

3 Boys and a Dog have a great ‘W is for Witch’ printable to help your littles work on letter recognition and fine motor skills.

These witches hat cupcakes look fantastic but they’re also surprisingly easy to make!

Extra! Extra!

These four witch activities are for slightly older kids – tweens to teens – (and adults too!)

My Sequined Witch Hat Decoration is a lot of fun (even if it is a bit messy!)
