Who says art has to be boo-ring?

While this year’s Halloween celebration will be different (boo you, COVID!), it doesn’t mean it won’t be just as fun. Whether you’re throwing a monster bash at home and ordering Halloween snack kits to make with your kidlets, they’re bound to have a ghoulishly delightful time. Here’s our top tip for even more Halloween fun: Halloween crafts! The best part? These ones are so spookishly easy that your little pumpkins could do ’em on their own. Here are our fave Halloween crafts to do with kiddos…

Easy Halloween crafts for kids

Monster Bookmarks

For this craft activity from Easy Peasy Fun, you’ll want to rustle up some cute origami paper. If you don’t have any on hand, colored paper will do. Plus, it’s a good way to get the kids to start reading again. Start folding, peeps!

Paper roll ghosts

Got a bunch of old toilet paper rolls lying around at home? Not only are these ghosts super adorable, they’re also easy to make. Check out this simple tutorial from One Little Project. Just draw or glue on a spooky face, and voila, you’re set!

Spider lollipops

Looking for a way to zhush up your Halloween candy? These spider lollipops from Kiwico only require googly eyes and fuzzy pipe cleaners. Psst… younger kiddos might need help with twisting wires!

Boo banner

Halloween doesn’t have to be all about pumpkins, green Frankensteins and witches. It can be as simple and understated as the Boo banner from A Beautiful Mess. This banner’s too cool, you might want to leave it on for the rest of the year.

Furry monster tote

Although this cute furry monster tote is giving us major Fendi monster and Anya Hindmarch vibes, it’s also a perfect sack for all that Halloween candy. You’ll need a glue gun, fake fur and giant googly eyes!

Trash bag cobwebs

Need to give your house a creepy Halloween vibe? Check out this trash bag cobweb tutorial from How To Be Orange. It’s so lowkey that all you need is a trash bag (black and new, of course) and a pair of scissors. You’re welcome.
