Halloween Clothespin Craft Kits for Kids

Updated on October 12, 2013

Easy Halloween Craft Kits for Children

Halloween is the perfect season to make crafts with kids. With the weather turning chilly, indoor craft projects will keep them happily occupied. What might be more satisfying is that the children are helping you to decorate for this spooky holiday. They will be so proud that they were able to help you with the Spooky D├ęcor to greet the trick-or-treating monsters that ring your doorbell.

Find craft kits below that use clothespins, paper plates, colorful paper, flashlights, moving eyeballs and foam! So cute and easy. In most cases you will just need to supply glue!

I think that my favorite kit for Halloween is the one for the clothespin dolls. Bet you could make a witch just like the one shown to the left if you really tried.

Cute Halloween Witch Clothespin Doll Craft Kit:

This witch is not green with warts; she is just so cute in her candy corn skirt that you will want to order more than one kit. The completed clothespin doll is between 5 and 6 inches tall. One Halloween doll per kit.

If both are sold out, check out the supplies that you can purchase a little further down the page. You can make up your own kit using fabric and nicknacks that you have on hand. For example, you can create a mummy with just a clothes pin and some toilet paper! Don't forget to buy some glue.

Jack the Pirate Halloween Kit! - A clothespin craft suitable for boys

My grandsons love pirates and they would love to make this one.


Halloween Witch of a Different Color!

Now, here is the traditional vision of a Halloween witch! Green skin and black hair. Bet you could put a wart on this clothespin doll if you tried really hard. Again, only one doll per kit. You could make a bunch to decorate a "Gift Tree" if you wanted.

Candy Corn Craft Kit -- - just in case you need more Halloween projects!

If you are planning a Candy Corn Halloween, these craft kits fit

the bill. Not everyone will want to make a "doll" or if you work fast, these kits will come in handy. I know that some of my grands work fast and need more, more, more!

If the kits are not available, I feel that you can purchase the supplies on your own to make these cute Halloween decorations.

  1. Click: Candy Corn Magnet Craft Kit (1 dz)

    Kit includes: all foam cutouts needed, wiggly eyes and magnets. Finished size is 3". All 12 projects are pre-packaged for individual use. Extra pieces are included along with instructions. Recommend for children over 3 years.

  2. Click the "Buy Now" button below if you are interested in making 16 of these candy corn cuties with your kids. The 4 1/4 inch high x 3 1/2 inch wide candy corn craft kit is quick and easy to assemble. The Foamies Candy Corn Bucket makes sixteen of these fun foam crafts. Glue is NOT included!

A Black Cat for Halloween Night!

Yes, another alternative craft for Halloween.

Black Cat Paper Plate Halloween Craft Kits (1 dz)

Kit includes: black paper plates, foam cutouts, pipe cleaner whiskers, purple bows & purple hangers. This kit includes enough parts to make 12 complete black cats. Glue is not included. Cat measures 12" when finished.

Last time I looked, this kit was less than $9. That means you will pay less than one dollar per cat if you let someone else do your gathering.

So, which craft would you like to make with your kids? I guess you can probably guess that I will be making one of the witches. Do not wait too long to get your kits; Halloween is just around the corner!

      I made clothespins dolls lots of times when I was little. I still hang out my laundry on a clothesline, so I have clothespins. I wonder how many children who grow up with dryers only - even know what a clothespin is!
