I know there are quite a few paper plate witch crafts out there but our post weekend lazy lunch addition of an egg box? Honestly I love this craft and I don’t think I could make them without the nose now, they’re a lot more fun and a good way to get practising with scissors too!

Black pen ( this is my go-to for everything)
Let’s Make It:
If you’d like to see how to make this fun paper plate witch then you can watch the video below, prefer written instructions? You’ll find them straight underneath. Want to make sure you don’t forget this idea? Make sure you bookmark this page or pin an image so you have it to hand when you need it. Want more fun Halloween crafts for kids? Check out more ideas at the end of this post.
Start by painting your paper plate green (if you don’t fancy this bit it’s totally possible to buy green paper plates). Once it’s dry cut the long bit out of a green egg box to make your witches nose, making sure that you leave a bit of the egg box at the bottom to make it easier to stick and then glue this onto your paper plate using PVA glue.
Next cut your witches hat out of black card and some strips of hair out of orange card. This is a great one for chilled out practising of scissor skills as being a witch it doesn’t matter at all if her hair looks a bit messy, if you watch the one I’ve made in the video my witches hair isn’t exactly ruler straight either! Using your glue stick the witches hair on either side of her head and then glue her hat on top of that.
Using your pen draw on your witches eyes and mouth and then if you like you can also use pom poms to add a couple of warts.
