Sure, Halloween is technically just one day, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the spooky season all October long — or even earlier, for that matter. Leading up to October 31, your family can relish in all things creepy, scary, and sweet by watching Halloween movies, reading Halloween books, and creating some fun Halloween crafts.
In addition to carving pumpkins, there are plenty of other Halloween-themed crafts that kids will enjoy. You can start getting into the spooky spirit now with fun art projects that inspire kids’ imaginations. Plus, you can display your hard work as part of your fall decor, making these crafts a win-win.
If you’re not DIY-savvy, don’t worry, the Halloween crafts on this list are foolproof and easy to do. In fact, you can opt to make them together as a family, but they are also simple enough for kids to create on their own. We especially love the Kid Made Modern Create Your Own Haunted House Kit that provides step-by-step instructions. These craft pumpkin dioramas are also a simple way for kids to let their imaginations run wild.
Our favorite might be these no-carve pumpkin decorating kits that are total showstoppers. Choose from Wonder Woman, Spiderman, or your favorite Disney Princess for a mess-free alternative to pumpkin carving.
