Halloween DIY Craft for Kids

The spookiest time of the year offers many opportunities to get creative.

The days and weeks leading up to October 31 are some of the best times to indulge your creative side, whether it be through homemade decorations in your Texas apartment or DIY costumes for kids.

And if you’re looking for some popular Halloween crafts to get the whole family, especially the kids in the Halloween mood and keep them occupied, there are plenty of DIY tutorials you can follow for paper plate crafts suitable for preschoolers, toddlers’ headbands that are costume-worthy, and treat bags that are begging to be filled to the brim with the kids’ favorite kind of candy.

Here are easy-to-make Halloween crafts that your kids can do in your Texas apartment.

Halloween Toilet Paper Roll Characters

This Halloween craft is incredibly simple. You can easily give your Halloween creatures a huge personality by reusing some toilet paper rolls and adding paint, colorful paper, googly eyes, and other embellishments such as pumpkins, mummies, Frankenstein monsters, or vampires.

Jack-o-Lantern Paper Plate Craft

Use orange and black markers or crayons to transform a plain white paper plate into a jack-o-lantern. All that’s left to do is poke a hole in the top and insert a green pipe cleaner as the stem.

Witch Paper Craft

This witch paper craft’s components include simple forms, making it suitable for young children to handle. A hand-drawn face and broom provide charm, while hair with fringe and a broom offer texture.

Painted Rock Ghosts

This project’s main component is smooth stones, which you can either find in nature or buy in bulk at a craft store. Then, using black permanent markers, give your ghosts any expression you can think of by painting them white.

Ghost Pops

These are wonderful presents for coworkers, neighbors, or friends. Start by wrapping any round lollipops in white fabric and binding them with baker’s twine. Draw a ghost face using a black pen with a fine tip.

Cotton Ball Ghosts

Preschoolers will love making this cute and easy activity. Give them cotton balls and glue sticks to attach to the outline of a ghost to make wistful, whimsical ghosts.

Cute Candy Wrappers                                       

The youngsters will love wrapping their favorite candy bars in adorable characters to hand out to their loved ones or trick-or-treaters.

Haunted House Paper Plate Halloween Craft

If you already need to purchase paper plates for your Halloween party, save a couple for a spooky craft the kids can make while you’re getting everything ready.

With a little creativity, it’s amazing what fun and festive Halloween decorations you can get done. Whichever way you lean, one thing is for certain: Everyone, not just your kids will enjoy doing some do-it-yourself crafts this Halloween.
