Next, invite your child to various shades of yellow and orange to fill in the center of the paper. Chalk pastels can be a bit messy, so your child may want to wear gloves for this part.

Now it’s time for the fun part! Once the paper is filled with color, show your child how to use a cotton swab to blend the colors together. If you do not happen to have cotton swabs on-hand, tissues would work well for this.

After the colors are blended, your child can arrange and glue the paper cut out shapes on top. Allow the glue to dry completely.

If desired, have a grown-up spray a coat of clear fixative to keep the chalk from smudging. This can be particularly helpful if you plan to mail your finished artwork to family or friends. Otherwise, be sure to proudly display your child’s finished Halloween artwork in your home!

Have fun!!
