My boys are Pokemon crazy. I can not count how many times a day I hear about lifes and damage. I tell myself that it is good, because they are working on their math skills and learning how to barter with the trading. They have gotten all the kids at school into it. I don’t think they really know how to play the game, but are obsessed with the trading cards. My oldest is going to be Pikachu for Halloween. So, I have been forced to jump on board and get Pokemon crafty. Yesterday I surprised them with two Poke ball Halloween trick-or-treat baskets.
They were pretty easy to make. I spray primed two trick-or-treat pumpkins that I bought for a dollar each. I covered the handles with masking tape first to protect them. Once dry, I drew the black line and circle with black Sharpie marker, and painted the top half with red acrylic paint. They were super excited to get the surprise baskets.
The next Pokemon craft that we made didn’t come out quite as I planned, but they still love them and you can make them in 5 seconds flat.
I found these 2.5″ fishing bobbers at Academy Sports & Outdoors. You could make smaller ones, but the large ones are more true to size.
All you do is draw the line and circle with a Sharpie marker. You could add some white paint to fill in the circle if you want. I think this would be an easy craft for a Pokemon themed party. Great party favors! I hope your Pokemon crazy crew likes these crafty ideas. Fun Fact- Pokemon means Pocket Monster in Japanese.
