Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31st every year.

This holiday involved trick or treating, dressing up in costumes, carving jack-o-lanterns, playing pranks, getting scared and much more.

The crafty possibilities are endless, and these are just a few of the ones I’ve came across when I was a kid.

You can make spooky or scary versions of the Halloween crafts for children. You can do this by making sharp teeth, scary eyes, and evil grins, etc. Or go with cutesy Halloween characters with big goofy eyes, smiles, etc.

I have tons of these and have actually separate pages for the most popular ones such as my list of easy spider crafts, best Monster crafts and Favorite ghost crafts for kids.
