Halloween Crafts for Kids: Easy and Fun

Halloween is our favorite holiday, and these days it’s more like a whole season! Which means we’ve got more time to celebrate it.

We like to stretch it out as long as possible, making sure to have fun longer than just on October 31st. So we’ve gathered lots of fun craft ideas from around the Internet. Some of the best Craft bloggers have shared their favorite Halloween Crafts for Kids with us – and we’re sharing them with you!

What we love about these crafts is that they’re easy enough to make with even the youngest kids, and even if you’re not that crafty yourself.

And if you are a crafter, you can always take them up a notch and get super fancy. Why not? Have fun!

Pumpkins, Witches, Spiders, Oh My!

These crafts cover all the kid-safe Halloween themes, more spooky than scary, which make them ideal for even young kids. You’ll find pumpkin decoration ideas, pumpkin shapes, ghost-y shapes, witches, frankensteins, spiders and their webs, even some dreaded slime!

No matter what you and your kids like best about Halloween, you’ll find a fun craft in this list. Enjoy!

Craft Supplies

Many of these crafts can be made with household items and things you already have around the house, but if you need some glue, paint, construction paper, or even some googly eyes, feel free to check out our Amazon shop to stock up and be ready.

Hosting a Halloween Party for the kids? Choose a couple of these crafts as a fun activity. Set up a table and cover it with plastic to keep the mess at bay. Then lay out all the supplies for the kids, maybe even with a photo to show them what it will look like, or make one ahead as an example.

These crafts would be fun as an after-school activity, too, with just you and your kids. Just imagine filling a wall with all these special Halloween Crafts you and your kids can make together. Have fun!
