20 Creative Halloween Crafts for Kids of All Ages

With costumes to plan and parties to decorate for, Halloween is a great time for kids to let their imaginations run wild! A few simple materials are all it takes to create fun and festive crafts for this hair raising holiday, and most of them are things you probably have on hand already.

Grab a handful of paper plates and some washable paints and your kids can create a flock of bats, a bony skeleton, or a line of grinning jack o lanterns. Plastic spoons can become toothy vampires, and cotton balls make for the perfect fluffy ghosts.
