Materials needed: water bottle, harvest colors of tissue paper, glue, glow stick, yarn.
(Don’t snap the light until you are ready to go out into the night.)
Directions: Have the children tear small pieces of tissue paper of many colors. The children can glue the pieces to the water bottle covering the outside. Put the glow stick inside the water bottle and put on the cap. Cut the yarn about 12 inches, and tie the ends to make a circle. Make a loop over the top of the bottle under the lip so the bottle can hang from the yarn. Children can take it with them trick or treating to be seen in the dark.
Materials needed: Paper lunch bags, glitter, glue, crayons or markers, Halloween stickers, battery operated tea lights, and sand (rice, beans) for the bottom of the bag.
Instructions: Decorate the lunch bags with glitter, glue and markers or crayons and or Halloween (Or Harvest) stickers. Leaving the paper lunch bag flat let the children punch as many holes as they like. (If the flat bag is too thick open it, but the hole-punch will only reach so far.) Open the bag and pour at least 1 cup of filler per bag (see above). Place the battery operated tea light inside. Set outside or inside for a safe shadowy glow.
