  • Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without a spooky Halloween witch and ours is a wicked wooden spoon witch called Wanda! She has all the elements of a fun craft – painting, sticking, googly eyes, cutting out clothes and if you felt really inspired you could even make her a broomstick!

    Wanda the witch is a great decoration for a Halloween party, but if you made a few the kids could create a puppet show with them. Try decorating a wooden spoon in red for a devil or white for a ghost for a bit of variety!

    Age group: Kids as young as 3 can get involved making this – they will just need help cutting out shapes for Wanda’s hat, dress, mouth, teeth and hands.
