Halloween Craft Kits
I recently ordered Halloween craft kits from Oriental Trading Company. I don’t think I’ve ordered anything from there in almost a year, plus it was getting cooler and I was in the fall mood. I had contacted Kevin’s teacher about this, and she gave me some guidelines so that the Halloween craft kits I ordered were something that he and his classmates could do.
Kevin goes to a small, private school. And like all schools, money is tight and they love donated items. Plus, since they serve only disabled children, it can be hard to find age-appropriate activities that are easy enough for the kids to do.
Many kids with disabilities struggle with fine motor skills but love the bright colors and festivities surrounding Halloween. OTC really came through for us as far as affordable tactile crafts and activities.
Here is some of what we ordered, in case you look at this post and want to order some for yourself. Note that they come in lots of 8 or 12.
- IN-13708569, hanging spider ceiling decoration, $6.99
- IN-13696890, mini orange paper lanterns 4 ½, $8.50
- IN-13703772, pumpkin-shaped beaded necklaces, $9.99
- IN-13705461, glitter Halloween mask craft kit, $8.50
- IN-9/610, mini jack-o-lantern magic springs, $3.99
- IN-13636755, beware foam plaque, $3.00
- IN-25/5157, spooky Halloween bag assortment, $5.50
- IN-25/6478, Halloween candy craft bag with stickers, $10.99
Under $1 each!
Now, I know that I said “under $1!” in the post title. The amounts you see there are not per item. The craft bags came in a lot of 12, so that is under $1 per bag.
That’s a great deal! And, the kids had fun doing it. It was tactile, fine motor, festive and age-appropriate for his class.
We have not put together all of the items yet since it is early.
Dollar Tree Halloween Crafts
Another great place to order Halloween craft kits is from Dollar Tree. They have kits that you can order online and have shipped to you. Yes, you can shop online at Dollar Tree. Most of the Halloween crafts are a minimum order of 36. But they have foam crafts, pumpkin crafts, pipe cleaners in Halloween colors and Mason jars.
I find the kits easiest because I am not crafty. But, if you find a DIY Halloween craft online, definitely check out Dollar Tree for your supplies.
They have an amazing assortment of tactile and fine motor crafts, for any holiday, for all abilities. And when they are done with the craft, it doesn’t look too babyish, plus they can do it themselves.
Whatever you need for Halloween, they have it. Candy, stickers, costumes, crafts, decorations, tattoos, you name it….so much more than any of the local stores, even the Halloween-specific stores. It’s also easier for me to shop at home and the delivery was fast.
Even if you don’t “do Halloween” because of personal or religious beliefs, they have many fall/autumn options such as just leaves and pumpkins. And all of these are under $1 per craft, many are around $0.50. Look at how cute those witch legs are! And, weaving! What a cute weaving activity.
The rhinestones offer lots of bling for students who love bling, and those leaf things–no skills required. They are “magic” leaves that basically, all you have to do is scratch on the paper to make a cool design.
