Halloween Glue Crafts for Fine Motor Skills

This past week we decided to make some simple Halloween designs using a material that is perfect for working on fine motor skills-- glue!  I think my children were in heaven-- they LOVE working with glue.  

Besides me, who doesn't love a good ooey-gooey sticky mess? 

Well, thankfully it wasn't too messy and it was a simple craft preschoolers and older kiddos can work on together.

In the end, we decided to send them in the mail to family members!

If you decide to practice fine motor skills with this activity, I'd love to know what you did with your crafts in the end.  Mail them out to family and friends? Frame them?  Get crafty and turn the Halloween designs into a banner?

You could eliminate the glue and just use colored puffy paint, however if you do not have that on hand, you will need to add black paint to your glue to make 'black glue' and add white paint to your glue to make 'white glue.'

If you don't add white paint to your glue, chances are the glue will dry clear!

Pick a few Halloween-ish items and draw them onto colored card stock with a pencil.

We chose a mummy, Frankenstein, candy corn, a ghost, pumpkin, and bats.

Encourage your child to follow over the image you drew with glue.

This activity is great for patience, hand-eye coordination, and squeezing of the glue bottle!
