Quick and Easy Halloween Crafts for Kids

halloween-activity

With Halloween on the horizon, you’re looking for quick crafts for kids. If you don’t have a whole day to commit to crafting, these art activities are it! Your child can enjoy these art-making ideas after school, when the sitter comes over, at grandma’s or during a holiday party.

Paper Bag Pumpkins

Color a plain lunch-sized paper bag with an orange marker or crayon, leaving the top few inches blank to color green. Open the bag and fill it with crumpled newspaper. Gather the bag just under the green top and tie it with a piece of yarn.

Flying Bats

Cut black tissue paper into rectangles. Pinch the paper at the center and tie it with a black ribbon (or piece of yarn). Hang the bats around the house or on a tree as holiday décor.

Halloween Garland

Use Halloween cookie cutters or stencils to trace shapes onto black and orange card stock paper. Cut the shapes out. Punch one hole on each side of the shapes. Thread black or orange yarn through the holes to create a holiday garland.

No-Carve Jack O’Lantern

If your child wants to carve a pumpkin, but is too young to safely use a knife, this is an easy alternative. Cut a circle or oval shape from a piece of orange poster board paper. Cut smaller shapes (such as triangles or semi-circles) out of black card stock paper. Your child can glue the smaller shapes to the pumpkin, creating a jack o’lantern face.

Pumpkin Face

Does your child want to use a real pumpkin—minus the knife to carve it? Instead of carving a face, use cut black duct tape!
