I love Halloween! It is such a fun time of year to have kids. Beside eating and serious excess of Halloween candy, doing simple Halloween crafts with my kids it a fun way to get into the Halloween spirit!
1. Paper Plate Masks
This is actually a craft sold by Oriental Trading for $5.99 that makes 12 masks. But there is no reason you couldn’t make this at home without a kit using paper plates, pipe cleaners and construction paper.
2. Lollipop Ghosts
This is a super simple and quick craft any kid can make. You simply cover a lollipop with a tissue, use a rubber band to keep it on, and draw on a face with marker. Done!
3. Pumpkin and Monster Jars
These fun jars are made using old pasta sauce jars, Epsom salt dyed using food color, foam for the eyes and mouth and ribbon to finish off the top.
4. Yarn Pumpkins
This was made using yarn, pipe cleaners and Elmer’s glue mixed with water and flour to thicken it, and balloons. Wrap the yarn, that has been dipped in the glue mixture, around an inflated balloon. Allow it to dry completely and then pop the balloon and finish with pipe cleaners for the stem and vines.
5. Halloween Cups
I know whenever I put a paint brush in my kids’ hands they are in HEAVEN, so they would love this simple craft. All you need is paint, cups, googley eyes, and a pipe cleaners if you want to make stems for the pumpkins.
6. Lollipop Spiders
Since Halloween is all about candy, it’s always fun to turn them into crafts. Using pipe cleaners and googley eyes, you can make these cute lollipop spiders.
7. Marshmallow Ghosts
This is a fun craft for kids of any age. Using black construction paper and marshmallows your child can make these cute ghosts to decorate the fridge with for Halloween.
8. Halloween Feet
I LOVE crafts that allow that involve hand and foot prints. It looks like this cute craft is made using a canvases so you can keep them and use them for Halloween decor year after year.
And because I love hand and foot print crafts so much here are a few more of my favorite ideas.
9. Q-Tips Skeletons
This is a craft probably more suited for a slightly older child. All you need is glue, Q-tips and construction paper. A fun Halloween craft AND a maybe even a fun anatomy lesson!
10. Egg Carton Pumpkins
All you need is an egg carton, paint, pipe cleaners and a marker for the face. Super fun and simple for little kids!
