Fun Halloween Crafts For Kids

Updated on December 3, 2015

Fun and Easy Halloween Crafts For Kids

I love Halloween and it's coming soon. That means it's time to prepare some fun and spooky Halloween crafts for kids. You can find crafts, Halloween coloring pages, treats and fun ideas on this lens. Since I am the mother of 4 kids I know how important it is to keep your children occupied and interested in what they are doing. Kids craft projects do just that. This bat craft kit is just one example of the fun ideas you can make with your children. I think these little bats are pretty cute, don't you? All this bat kit takes is a foam ball, cut out wing shapes from a foam sheet, and a body cut out... some dots a marker to draw a face.

Here is a similar bat craft kit

Make Your Own Halloween Craft Kits For Kids

It's Easy To Make Crafts With A Halloween Theme

Take a look at those craft kits and I'll bet you can see at least one you could make yourself. Is it the handprint bat? All you have to do is trace your child's hand on to a piece of black construction paper, cut it out, glue it together and decorate it with markers, paints or materials. It's that easy to be crafty without spending any money.

Do you have any paper plates or small white kitchen size garbage bags? Then you have the beginnings of a craft kit. You can make all sorts of projects with a paper plate. First have your kids color it or paint it orange. Then let them draw a pumpkin face with a marker...or you can cut eye shapes, nose shapes and mouth shapes out of construction paper and they can glue them on. Use a hole punch to make a hole at the top of your paper plate, loop some string or Halloween colored ribbon through the hole and tie it in a knot. Now you can hang up your Halloween paper plate projects.

The white garbage bag can become a ghost with a little effort. It's easy. Roll some newspaper up into a ball and stick it into the bag. Grab the bag around the paper and tie some string....the ball shape of the newspaper will be the head of the ghost. Now cut the bottom on the plastic bag into strips. Use construction paper pieces just like you did with the pumpkin paper plate craft. Let your kids decorate their own ghost. Loop a string to the back of the ghost's neck and he can be hung up...when the wind blows so will will look like your homemade ghost is flying.

It's so fun and easy to make craft projects kids will love at Halloween. I always like to be around to make some lovely crafts of my own. It's fun to be a big kid around Halloween! It's a great way to hang out and spend some real quality time with your children. That's a wonderful thing no matter what the season.
