I always enjoy crafts that use paper plates. And this paper plate black cat is no exception. It’s easy for kids to make and use as a festive Halloween decoration. The black cat is a Halloween critter that is more cute than scary, so this craft is fun for kids of all ages.

Another fun craft that is more cute than scary, these monster buttons are a perfect Halloween project. Once you buy the design buttons, everything else you need is probably already in your craft supplies. I like these because you don’t need artistic talent to make them look good. So, all the kids will love their finished product.

This is the first time I’ve used plastic spoons in a craft and I have to say, I love the results. You will too! And so will your kids! These plastic spoon monsters are adorable and simple to create. Plus they make great puppets if your kids want to play with them after craft time.

This Halloween craft is a good one for slightly older kids with the patience to do a little beading. And the results are very charming. This is a Halloween craft you can use to decorate throughout the fall season.

spider web frames

8. Spider Web Frame

If you’re looking for a craft that doubles as Halloween decor for your home this spider web frame is perfect. It’s easy for kids to make with a little help from a grown-up when it’s time for the hot glue gun. And it makes a fun party activity for kids to take home.

ghost lollipops

9. Ghost Lollipops

I had to include this craft because ghost lollipops were a staple of my childhood Halloweens! And kids still love them! This version uses coffee filters instead of tissues, which works really well. Your kids can help you draw the faces and assemble the ghosts for passing out to friends or trick or treaters.

10. Wrapped Mummy No-Carve Pumpkins

To get really creative with no-carve pumpkins, check out these mummy wrapped cuties! This Halloween craft will take some help from an adult for younger kids, but it will be worth it. They are fun to make and even more fun to display!
