My kiddos and I are having such a fun time making these Super Easy Witches’ Broom Party Favors that we’re making TONS. These super easy witches broom glow sticks are so much more than just a “party favor”. You can hand them out to trick or treaters, you can put them in a treat bag for a Harry Potter party or use them for you next Halloween party. There’s just so many options!
My kids love glow sticks so much that we are giving out some of these Witches’ Broom on Halloween night, along with other treats. I’m sure the children will love them because who doesn’t love wearing glow sticks on Halloween night, right? 😉
You can even make this as a Halloween treat for your child’s classmates! Plus, to make it easier for you, I’ve made a free printable with this Halloween gift that. You can download it at the end of this post, without having to enter your email.
Super Easy Witches Broom Party Favors
One of the things I liked best about this project was that, by using this ultra low-temp hot glue gun, the girls could actually help me make these little halloween favors. So it’s doubled as our craft for the day!
The foam is easy enough to cut that they can use their little scissors on it, they can thread the ribbon…they can practically make the whole project by themselves with just a little help!
I feel like finding projects that they can do to make gifts for others is a really important part of teaching my kids to be mindful of others and think of them in an empathetic way. We can talk about who we’re giving the halloween party favor to, what they’ll think about it, and how it makes us feel to give a present. It’s a simple way to make them think about spreading kindness and to think of others.
If we just went and bought a favor, though, we wouldn’t really have as much time to really intentionally talk about these things. So, as the kids get older, I plan to make a lot more things with them, so we can reinforce these concepts over time.
Now, let’s get to making this easy halloween craft!

How to Make Witches Broom Party Favors
This is one of the easiest crafts ever–and the kids really enjoyed making these, so you should have fun, too.
Watch the video tutorial below on how to make this craft, or keep on scroll if you prefer to read:
Cut a long thin strip from the brown craft foam. You will want it to be 1-2 inches wide.
Using scissors, create a fringe effect with the strip of craft foam by cutting thin strips, but do not cut all of the way through, leave a bit of space at the top still connected.
Place a line of hot glue on the end of the strip of craft foam that you have created a fringe on. Apply the bottom of a glow stick to the glue, and hold until it cools and hardens to the glow stick. Be careful as you do this step, to make sure that you do not crack the glow stick prematurely.
Put a line of hot glue along the outside of the piece of craft foam you just glued to the glow stick. Gently roll the fringe around the glow stick until the craft foam overlaps the section that you just applied glue to. Let it set and harden.>
Use scissors to cut the excess craft foam from the glow stick. You should be left with a glow stick that looks like a broom with fringe of craft foam at the bottom.
Cut out the printable Halloween gift tags. Punch a hole in one end of the tag.
Tie one tag onto the glow stick broom with a piece of black ribbon or thread.
Repeat steps 2-8 with the remaining glow sticks.
Then they’re ready to fly!
