I didn’t think there could be anything cuter than Halloween crafts – until I saw these Halloween crafts for kids. Oh, to be a child again and craft for the holidays! I think there’s nothing cute than “mini” characters and googly eyes, both of which are a key component to proper Halloween kids’ crafting. Some of these crafts are for younger children; some are for those that are a little bit older. You can always make substitutions depending on your child’s age (regular glue instead of a hot glue gun), or you can do the craft with them! Either way, you are going to have a blast. Scroll down to see my picks for 16 easy Halloween crafts for kids.
