These fun and easy Halloween crafts for kids will keep your little ones kids busy for a couple of hours—and help decorate the house for the holiday!

Some parents are super crafty, DIY-types who love to make things with their hands. (They might even get teased for it.) Other parents are the complete opposite and have absolutely zero love for crafting. But either type of parent should try to find some time for doing Halloween crafts with their kids. Why? Because Halloween crafts for kids do triple duty! They give children a fun, screen-free activity, they help build excitement for the spooky holiday (which many kids say they love even more than Christmas!), and they provide decor items with which you can decorate your home and get kids even more into the spirit. (Maybe not quite as much as bags full of candy or dressing up as a favourite character, but close.)

So, where to start? This roundup of kid-friendly Halloween crafts will give you some ideas. Some are pretty simple, requiring few supplies and nearly zero artistic talent. Others, admittedly, are a bit elaborate and are better suited to the more artsy parents among us. But all parents should be able to find something in this list of Halloween crafts for kids. Choose something that works for you and for your kids’ artistic abilities and developmental stage. Put on a Halloween playlist in the background and make an afternoon of it!
