This isn’t a trick—we’ve got all kinds of Halloween crafts for you and the family to treat yourselves with. From pumpkins to witches and all other spook-tacular crafts, your kids will have a blast getting ready for one of the most fun holidays of the year.

Let the gourd times roll with pumpkins

Is it really fall if you don’t have pumpkins? Here are some of our favorite pumpkin crafts your kids will love. 

Pumpkin Mason Jars: If you find yourself with an abundance of candy corn, these cute little jars will give you a place to store them all. Whether you’re capitalizing on candy corn as a fun decoration, or you like the treat, these little mason jars are sure to be great fun.

Pumpkin Slime: Ever wondered what to do with the leftover pumpkin guts after you’ve carved up that jack-o-lantern? Try making this pumpkin gut slime. Not only is it a fun activity for the kids, but it’ll give you something to do with those unused parts of the pumpkin.

Halloween Handprints: You only get so many Halloweens with your little ones, so if you want a fun way to immortalize the memory of them on this special holiday, try these clay handprint crafts. You’ll have a great keepsake for the end of the night once the kiddos are finished trick-or-treating.

Boo-tiful ghost crafts

Check out these frighteningly good ghost projects for the whole family to enjoy. 

Ghost Leaves: A fun and easy Halloween craft also makes a delightfully spooky outdoor decoration. Just find some leaves, decorate them, and string them up wherever you’d like to make these little ghosts fly.

Soda Bottle Ghosts: Why throw out those old soda bottles when you can reuse them for a fun craft with the kiddos? Decorate the bottles to look like little ghosts and they’ll make the perfect decoration for your house to get in the spirit of the season. 

Ghost Lollipops: If you have older children who may not want to trick-or-treat this year, get them involved in the fun by making ghost lollipops with them, and then they can help pass them out to the kids who come by for treats.

Eerie-sistibly monster-made

Need more than just ghosts or pumpkins? Don’t worry—we have all kinds of crafts for your little monsters to make. 

Cardboard Tube Mummies: Another fun way to reuse some otherwise discarded home items, these cardboard tube mummies will give your kids a perfect way to make themselves a little monster of their own. 

Paper Plate Witch: These adorable witches are the perfect decoration for Halloween festivities, and your kids will love putting them together. 

Monster Stones: Collect some smooth rocks from outside and gather up your paints for these little rock monsters. Your kids will have a blast customizing their monsters with googly eyes and whatever colors they want. 

Halloween is a perfect time to get creative and spend time with the family. Whether you’re out trick-or-treating with the little ones, or you’re manning the front door, we hope you have a phantom-tastic Halloween!
