How to Make a Flying Witch Craft for Kids

Who loves fun interactive crafts for kids?! My Halloween tutorial on how to make a flying witch craft with cup is one of my favorites!

Plastic Cup Pop Up Witch Paper Craft

When I think of Halloween I firstly think of Jack O Lanterns and then witches! My kids love everything about witches, from story telling to dressing up and making their own!

We have made lots of different easy Halloween witch crafts in the past few years and will be hopefully adding more to the collection. 

We have previously made a Paper Cone Witch, which was really easy and also suitable for Preschool kids. Right now we are also making a witch with rolling eyes using a paper plate.

At this time of the year I am always coming up with new Halloween craft ideas for my kids using basic craft supplies I have at home.

Witches do not have to be scary, I always tell my kids there are lots of good witches out there like my pop up witch below! It looks as if she is flying out of the cup!

She appears from a little plastic cup to bid you all Happy Halloween, but do not worry she does not fly away; instead she returns to inside the cup. 

Before you start this craft you can see my witch popping up from the cup in the video below. Please follow the tutorial carefully to see how to make a flying witch for Halloween!
