20 Plus Easy Halloween Crafts For Kids Chosen By Our Son

Does your child enjoy crafts as much as we do? I sat with my 5 year old son and let him choose as many Halloween crafts he'd like to do after school. We found 20 plus Halloween crafts for kids chosen by our son, then i added in a few I'd love to do.


We are HUGE fans of Halloween in our house, so as soon as it gets to September we are getting ourselves prepared and excited about it! From picking our costumes to deciding which fun party games to play and what spooky looking food we can make for our annual Halloween party with all of the family. Our most favorite part to the lead up of Halloween is doing arts and crafts, my eldest son is always asking me if we can make Halloween crafts and I love it as it means we get to spend quality time together as well as having fun.


Crafts are also a great way to encourage creativity in your child as well as bring out your inner child. And what better way to make your house full of scary Halloween themed crafts.

When our son Channing saw these he got super excited. Where we live people collect and paint stones for children to find so these mummy painted stones are great if this is something your community does. We've actually made a few painted stones ourselves. We usually paint the stones white and let our boys loose with the Sharpes.

6. Jack Skellington Craft for Kids – The Nightmare Before Christmas

Hopefully your children are at an age when they are not scared of The Nightmare Before Christmas, if they haven't seen it its a must see. Our boys love it.. This craft is great because it's so simple to use and only require a paper plate, black paper, glue and scissors. The spider isn't essential unless you have some laying around the house we don't so will do without.


7. Halloween Agamograph with Printable Template
