Halloween Crafts for Kids

Updated on August 22, 2013

Get Crafty With Your Kids

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays as it gives the perfect opportunity to let your imagination (crafty and other) go wild! I wouldn't mind it this holiday would be celebrated more than once to be honest.

On this page I will be sharing cute Halloween crafts for kids that we are making as well as some cool ideas I have found online and are worth sharing.

I will be adding new ideas all year round so be sure to check back to get new inspirations.

Rock Monsters - Super easy and fun Halloween craft!

Peebles, rocks (in all sizes and shapes, it's best if they are flat) Acrylic colors (the more the merrier) Permanent markers (Sharpie...) Eyes & GlueIf you live near a river it won't be hard to get the perfect rocks if you live in a big city you can get the rocks in a craft store. Wash the stones and let them dry.Paint them with colors from both sides and let the color dry for a few minutes. When it is dry draw in the mouth and other details with a permanent marker. Color in the details (teeth, tongue, etc..) if necessary. Glue on the eyes (you could always draw them with a permanent marker).

Bringing The Monsters To Life - With Pictures

Crafty Wiggle Eyes - You will need an extra pair of eyes

These will come in handy with many kids projects (well and a few adult ones as well)

It is best to get the mix of different sizes. I used the same sized ones as they were the only ones I had at hand but the one eyed monster would look even cutter if the eye would be bigger.

 

Spooky Eye Bracelet - Fun Halloween Craft for Kids - Spooky Fashion

Paper tube roll (from toilet paper, paper towels...) Styrofoam Balls cut in half Colors Glue, Permanent Marker and ScissorsYou will need some preparation for this project before you give it to the kids. First you need to cut the Styrofoam balls in half. Put the Styrofoam ball half on the paper tube roll and mark where you need to cut it. You will be needing one paper roll bracelet for every Styrofoam half (naturally you can do a few extra).Give the kids the paper rolls and have them color it with the colors they like. Have them draw the eyes on the Styrofoam Ball Halves with a permanent marker. Color in the details. Glue on the eye on the bracelet.

      @ecogranny: If you have a round mold (you could also form balls) you could make them out of old paper. A few years back I was making (well attempting as I never finished) a paper mache doll bed with paper mache pulp (it comes out like clay and is really easy to work with) - I soaked strips of paper in water overnight, blended them with blender the next day and squeezed the water out a bit. I mixed in some white glue and flour - this way you get a nice clay like paste that can be easily shaped or put into molds (you can make balls with your hands). There are lots of different paper mache pulp recipes online (most with toilet paper but regular newspaper works out just fine - it's grey though) so do check them out to see which one best suits you (all are pretty straight forward). Let the balls dry and they will be easy to color and won't be heavy.

      What fun projects to make for Halloween! My granddaughter and her other grandmother would love making those Halloween eyeball wrist cuffs together. We are avoiding bringing new plastic into our house. I wonder if you have any ideas for the eyeballs that don't involve plastic? I'm wracking my brain to come up with an alternative and so far getting zip.
