10 Best Halloween Crafts to use with the picture book by Rebecca Grabill and Ella Okstad, Halloween Good Night

What's more fun than dressing up on October 31st and filling a bag with treats? Slime! Piñatas! Crafts! Fun! From all around the web, I've curated my favorite Halloween crafts for preschoolers to early elementary, each to go along with the picture book, Halloween Good Night. Without further introduction, let's get some BOO! on!

One Slimy Globster

Glitter Slime Globsters from 36th Avenue blog are perfect to go along with Halloween Good Night! What's more Globby than SLIME?

Slime =

Globsters!

I have a lot of people ask me, "What the heck is a Globster, anyway?" And my own 5-yr-old insists on calling it a lobster. So here we have it, a Globster in a jar (of course, because they're so GLOBBY). How adorable is this? 

Two Giggling Wood Imps

Two sweet as anything wood imps from We Bloom Here just waiting for some crafting to go along with the book Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill

Sweet Imps

sleeping... shhh!

They're so cute when they're sleeping... I don't know how many times I've said that about my little imps, but here are two adorable ones by We Bloom Here, ready and waiting for you to add them to your Halloween Good Night craft collection!

Three Wee Werewolves

Wolf masks from Oh My Handmade are the perfect accompaniment to the picture book by Rebecca Grabill Halloween Good Night

Aroooooooo!

Wolf masks for everyone!

No Halloween is complete without some costumery, and here you have the cutest wolf masks ever. Add fangs for that werewolf-vibe, or just let them be sweet. Then cuddle up and Hooowwwwlll!

Four Cuddly Mummies

Mummy Piñata from DIY Candy, a perfect addition to ANY Halloween party, especially one centered on the picture book Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill!

Mummy

So Yummy!

There are about a zillion (and a half) crafts for mummies involving things like: yarn, tape, toilet paper, paint, food. Mummies are adorably crafty, and I never did figure out how the evil ones actually, like, eat people. But that's beside the point. Here's a one-of-a-kind-adorable and FUN craft from DIY Candy. What's better than mummies? Piñatas!

Five Peeling Zombies

Zombie Boogers! from Paper and Parcel would make the ideal goodie bag for a party themed around the book Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill

Zombie

Sneezes... Achooooo!

They picked them just for you. The zombies, that is. I couldn't resist this yummy fun edible craft, because really, what's better than something DISGUSTING that's DELICIOUS? The recipe could easily be made DF by subbing butter for coconut oil. Bonus!

Six Hexing Witches

Make a Halloween keepsake with this handprint craft from Crafty Morning. Perfect to go with the picture book by Rebecca Grabill, Halloween Good Night

Witchy

Handprint Art!

This craft reminded me of a pair of my four-year-old handprints that hung on my parents' wall. Handprint art is always fun, always a keepsake, and here there's potential to make this craft into a classroom or whole-family activity. A Handprint Witch Mural?

Seven Gobbling Goblins

Paint your own goblin to go with the book Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill. This cute tutorial is from Picklebums.

Goblin...

Creativity meets Fun

What a super creative craft! Of course you could make ANY sort of monster, but add a little hat and you have the perfect, messy, dumpster-diving goblin. So, so cute.

Eight Haunting Ghosts

Pet rocks get a makeover - as ghosts! Adorable craft from Easy Peasy and Fun and perfect for Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill

Pet Ghosts!

So easy, so fun...

SO. MANY. GHOST. CRAFTS. So many. If you look at my Pinterest Halloween Good Night page, you'll find oodles. But this one stood out. Partly for simplicity, partly for cuteness, and partly because you really could make eight little rock ghosts, name them, leave them around the house to "haunt" siblings and friends. Endless fun!

Nine Dining Vampires

A vampire shooter from Wündertutchen is a perfect pairing for Rebecca Grabill's book, Halloween Good Night

Vampire Shooter!

 

How smart is that?

Wow, just wow! Can you imagine a houseful of little ghouls shooting puffballs at one another with these adorable Vampire Shooters? Absolutely brilliant. Instructions are in German, but the pictures make the process clear (and easy!). Link will route you first to Pinterest, then to the site (for some reason I can't use oomlouts in links here!).

Ten Drooling Boogies

ADORABLE boogie monster finger puppet pattern, great for Halloween. Also included are zombies, werewolves, ghosts and more! Perfect pairing for the picture book Halloween Good Night by Rebecca Grabill

These cuties...

Perfect Boogie Monsters

What does a Boggart look like? Since they hide in dark closets, waiting for us to sleep, we don't know for sure, but I'm guessing they could look a lot like this cute-as-anything finger puppet. Make ten, one for each finger, and play counting games! Or make the whole set - that's right, ALL the characters from Halloween Good Night!
