Time to start on the Halloween crafts! Woo Hoo! I’ve got lots planned for the run up to the 31st so keep checking back. I’ve also put together a post with all the past Halloween crafts so that they are all in one place for you. Aren’t I nice. Well first up this year is this Halloween ping pong lights craft. Although it is very quick and simple the last part will require adult help.

Make sure you follow my Halloween craft board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

You will need

  • Ping pong balls
  • Battery powered tea lights
  • Sharpies
  • Sharp scissors

Start out by drawing a face onto the ping pong balls.

Now this next step with either require you to do it or for you to supervise if you have older children. In the middle on the “bottom” of the ping pong use the scissors to make a hole large enough so that it can slip over the plastic flame of the tea light.

EC getting in on the action.

It is such a simply and quick craft to do, we decorated ours in the 15 minutes we had between finishing homework and having dinner. Making the holes, isn’t quite as quick as that.

EC even put a hidden Mickey onto his light (I must be having a positive influence on him hehe).

YC’s creations. I particularly like the stare of the front one on the right!

YC enjoyed making her faces on her Halloween ping pong lights. Even EC, who seems to have gone off doing crafts, wanted in on the action. Unfortunately he only managed to make one as he decided he wanted to do it at the last minute.
