These Halloween Crafts are perfect for getting into the seasonal spirit with kids of all ages. I really do not need any excuse to craft, but if you are looking for one it can not have escaped your attention that it is nearly Halloween. For me it is a great reason to get making and baking with the boys and we start to decorate the Mad House with all our homemade decorations from early October! If you are looking for inspiration, then I have this super roundup for you of our Halloween crafts for kids. These are the Halloween things that we have made over the years, so there will be something for all ages and abilities.
I love that Halloween brings out the crafters in my boys. They seem to embrace anything to do with Halloween and Maxi has even joined in with a lot of what we have made this year.
Craft and Art are a great way of developing children’s gross and fine motor skills and also engaging them in seasonal traditions and activities that are screen-free.
The main excitement of Halloween for kids, the costumes and treats might not happen until October 31, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate right up until the big day and that is the beauty of seasonal crafts – they extend the celebrations.

We are fans of crafts that are spooky but not too scary. Ones that are fun to make and create and also that are not too perfect and it wouldn’t be Halloween without googly eyes, candy corn or jack o lanterns.
