Wipe Away Your Halloween Horrors with WaterWipes this Autumn.

Wipe Away Your Halloween Horrors with WaterWipes this Autumn.

Now that autumn is here and the weather has started turning cooler, I’m always on the look out for fun crafts to keep Dex occupied while we are cooped up indoors avoiding the wind and the rain.

With Halloween just around the corner, what’s more fun than getting stuck into some Halloween crafts to occupy us during the blustery days? I had a good browse through Pinterest to find some craft activities that were suited to a toddler and went out on a mission to the craft store to buy everything we needed.

With UK residents spending a whopping £460 million on Halloween essentials in 2015*, WaterWipes were the perfect addition to my Halloween shopping list as these new baby wipes contain just two ingredients – 99.9% purified water and a drop of fruit extract.

And boy, did the WaterWipes come in handy!

We started with some paper plate crafts creating a pumpkin, witch, spider, bat and cat. Dexter was much more interested in smushing his hands in the paint and smearing them everywhere including his face. Luckily with the WaterWipes to hand, I was able to clean him up without having to worry about irritating his skin or clogging his pores.

We then moved onto creating an autumn themed tree using different coloured tissue paper and finger paints for the grass around the tree. I think we can safely say that I did most of the crafting, but if Dex could talk, I’m sure he’d say he had loads of fun too!

What crafts will you be doing with your little ones this autumn?

WaterWipes are priced at £2.70 and are available from Boots, Amazon.co.uk, Ocado.co.uk and major supermarkets.

To make the paper plates…

You will need…

  • Paper plates
  • Paint
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Coloured Paper
  • Black Marker Pen
  • Pom Poms
  • Googly eyes
  1. For the witch, we painted the paper playe green and left to dry while we created her hat out of black coloured paper. We also used a strip of orange paper to decorate her hat. Once the face was dry, we fashioned eyes out of white and black coloured paper ad drew on her nose and mouth with a marker. We added a purple wart onto her nose with a pom pom. For her hair we curled up orange pipe cleaners and stuck on with glue.
  2. For the pumpkin we painted the paper plate orange and once it was dry we used pom poms for the eyes with googly eyes stuck on. We added a stalk by using a green pipe cleaner and fashioned a mouth out of black coloured paper.
  3. We cleaned up mucky hands using WaterWipes.

    We love Waterwipes, they were actually recommended to us by midwives in hospital! Definitely a good call at Halloween, between the sweets, face paint and crafts, it can be a nightmare getting them clean and regular face wipes leave my sons skin so dry!

    I really like waterwipes. It’s so nice to be able to use a product you can trust! I am trying to do more crafty things with my just turned two year old. I bought a massive bag of pipe cleaners this week and he spent ages sticking them through the colander! 😀

    My youngest had sensitive skin so knowing that wipes are as close to water as thy can get is so important.

    We are always reaching for wipes whenever we do any type of craft activity, in fact my two year old now asks for them to wipe her hands with. They are definitely a must this Halloween, and for adults too when carving a pumpkin. Claire x

    Oh I love your autumn crafts tree. Really clever idea to add water wipes to the shopping list too. I wouldn’t have thought to use them but I will now. Perfect for cleaning hands up after arts and crafts.

    Very handy for Halloween! x

    We have used water wipes for about five years now. I honesty wouldn’t be without them and can’t see us changing ever. So will probably still be buying them when the kids are 7 and 11! Both have skin complaints so its good to have something I trust. x

    We love water wipes and even as my girls are getting older I can’t see a time when I won’t have them. These are lovely autumn crafts, my girls would love doing these x
