Evoking all the fun of the Halloween season doesn’t have to be complicated! Use Klutz Jr. activity kits to easily make adorable costumes and crafts this spooky season.

Try these four at-home Halloween activities to raise spirits this season! You can find all books and activities at The Scholastic Store.
DIY Halloween Headbands
Headbands are one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to pull off a costume. To create your own at home, you and your little ones can use the Klutz Jr.: My Fun & Fuzzy Headband Salon, which comes with all the materials for three stunning DIY headbands!
The instruction booklets (called idea books) help build early reading skills. They feature helpful illustrations and entertaining tidbits kids love repeating later. Think jokes (“What do unicorns call their dads? Pop corn!”) and fun facts (“Cats snooze for 13 to 14 hours a day.”).
To polish off the costumes, use one of the many designs from the Klutz: Face Painting kit, which comes with all of the paint and supplies you need, plus clear instructions and simple ideas to encourage beginner face painters. For extra sparkle, try Klutz: Glitter Face Painting!
