Honolulu Museum of Art
Bank of Hawaii Family Sunday event information
Kids are encouraged to dress up for this pre-Halloween event! Make a funky, funny, or frightening mask using colorful paint and cool stuff to stick on it, then create a mini Jack-o’-lantern out of air-dry clay.
• Pinch pot pumpkin: Get ready for Halloween and construct a clay pumpkin out of air dry clay. After the clay dries in two to three days, children can then paint their pumpkin it with acrylic paint.
• Pumpkin painting: Halloween isn't complete without a pumpkin at the front door or as an indoor decoration. To keep things safe, children won't be carving pumpkins, but they can't paint them up however they want—and then maybe carve out their designs at home.
• Paper cup witch and vampire: Looking for costume ideas? Children will construct a witch or vampire out of a foam sphere, paper cup, yarn, googly eyes, buttons, markers, and construction paper.
