Scary Arts and Crafts

Make scary arts and crafts for Halloween with these easy Halloween crafts. Kids can have so much fun all of October making these crafts leading up to October 31. And so can you!

I've included the following easy Halloween crafts but these may not be suited to young children if they're easily spooked:

- Stained glass coloring pages of boo-tiful Halloween creatures

- Scary scenes with printable stickers

- Scary witch paper doll

- Scary masks to download, print, and wear

Tin Can Craft -- Halloween Bowling Game

I saw this photo on Pinterest of a nice set up of "pins" for Halloween bowling. I loved this idea immediately! I'm leaving this photo up till I can paint some cans myself.

Aren't they darling? Start saving your empty cans (you'll need six to make this set) then check out the instructions at Blog Zui.

      Returning to smile at that skull soap and ended up smiling at the tin can bowling, had forgotten about that cuteness and those cans can be used to store little items as well.
