6 fun Halloween crafts to make with your kids

As the nights grow longer and the leaves start falling from the trees, we can’t help but get excited about decorating for the Halloween season.

Halloween is a great opportunity to break out the glue sticks, scissors and construction paper with your kids and make some creative Halloween crafts together. Here’s a list of some of our favorite DIY decorations to celebrate the season with.

Lollipop Ghosts

This classic Halloween decoration is both easy and fun to make. Just take a lollipop, wrap it in a facial tissue and tie a ribbon around it to create a cute little mini ghost that can be hung anywhere. The more ghosts you make and hang, the more dramatic the presentation. And when the season’s over, you’ve got a sweet reward to enjoy! This tutorial will show you how.

Popsicle Haunted House

We can’t wait to get started on this easy tutorial for a cute little haunted house made out of popsicle sticks, paint and a variety of Halloween decorations. For the youngest kiddos, you’ll need to take over the cutting job, but there’s still plenty to do for even the smallest hands. The result is a fanciful, one-of-a-kind decoration you can put out every year.

Halloween Spider Craft

You’ll get a fun chance to shop at the craft store to get what you’ll need for this tutorial for kid-friendly spider decorations. By gluing pom poms to glue sticks and adding googly eyes, you’ll create adorable arachnids that will make spiders seem almost cute.

DIY Tin Can Ghost Windsock

Whenever we get to make something fun and creative out of something we’d otherwise throw away, we consider that a huge bonus. This tutorial for a DIY tin can ghost windsock will transform a tin can into a respectable phantom using just a little paint, ribbon and glue. They’re cheap and easy to make, so be sure to make several to hang all around the house.

Toilet Paper Roll Mummies, Bats and Black Cats

Speaking of recycling with crafts, you’ll want to take a look at these toilet paper roll mummies. Draw on the eyes instead of using googly eyes, and these decorations cost nothing to make. Just as cute, affordable and easy are these toilet paper roll bats and toilet paper roll black cats. With just these three crafts, you’ll be able to make plenty of Halloween decorations that cost next to nothing but look adorable.

Glitter Trick-Or-Treat Bags

Whether they’re bringing home the bounty from trick-or-treating or a school Halloween party, your kids will enjoy sporting these glittery trick-or-treat bags that they’ve made themselves. This project is also a fun activity for Halloween parties.

Have a happy Halloween!
