Fun Halloween crafts for kids

22 Oct

It’s that time of year again. The leaves are falling, the smell of pumpkin pie is in the air, and kids are running around trying to find the perfect costumes. Yep, that’s right. Halloween is right around the corner! And we’ve found some great crafts that you and your kids can do together to keep it festive. Check it out!

Milk Jug Ghosts:
These ghosts are fun and easy to make. Just use some of your recycled milk jugs and a sharpie, put some lights inside and you’ve got a spooky group of ghosts for your front porch!

Q-Tip Skeleton:
All you need are a few Q-tips, a black piece of paper, and some white computer paper. Glue the Q-tips onto the black sheet and draw the skeleton’s head on the white piece of paper. Whether it’s a scary or cute skeleton like this one here, it will be sure to raise some spirits!!

Lollipop Spider:
Have some lollipops laying around the house? Get some pipe cleaners and googly eyes and make some creepy, crawly spiders! These are low cost and cute! Oh, and the best part: when Halloween is over, you can eat them!

Glowing jars:
After having grown up with a lava lamp, I must say that this is definitely one of my favorite crafts. All you need is a jar, a glow stick, and some glitter. Pour both in the jar and shake until the glitter has spread out with the glow liquid. It’s so cool looking when it’s all on the edges of the jar!

Cup Spiders:
And my last craft for you all: the cup spider. This is another easy craft that your younger kids will appreciate. You will need plastic cups, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and some fun colored sharpies. Poke holes through the cups and pull the pipe cleaner all the way through both sides. Then have your kids draw faces and glue on some googly eyes!

Now go make some memories with your kids and craft away! They’ll thank you later.

Happy Halloween!
