Nursery Activity Idea: Making A Witch On A Broomstick
This creative activity is more suitable for children over the age of two. Their Witches can then be hung from the ceiling to make a colourful Halloween decoration.
You will need:
- White card
- White paper
- Brown Paper
- String or cotton
- Paint or pencils
- Kitchen roll tube
Draw or print a picture of a witch sitting on a broomstick onto white paper or card. Colour or paint the witch and cut around the lines, cutting out the broomstick. If the witch is printed onto paper, glue it onto a white card and again cut the witch out.
To make the broomstick, either paint the kitchen roll tube brown, or wrap it in some brown paper using the tape. Shred some of the brown paper and attach the shreds to the inside of the tube at one end using the tape.
Next, glue or tape the witch onto the broomstick facing away from the shreds of brown paper. Cut a length of string or cotton and thread it through the tube. Make a small hole in the witches hat and thread through another length of string or cotton. Use the ends of the strings to hang the witch from the ceiling, as a colourful Halloween decoration.
