What are some Halloween crafts?
For so many reasons, kids of all ages enjoy Halloween. It is worth getting all excited about the DIY Halloween costumes for children alone. My guess is that they're in it for the candy. Besides the costumes, candy, and trick-or-treating, Halloween is a great season to flex those creative muscles. Take, for example, these simple Halloween crafts for children that will amuse, delight, and inspire kids of all ages and ability levels.
- Treat Box Haunted Houses. The perfect basis for kids to dream up and decorate their own haunted houses is paper treat boxes. Make a set and then display them on your mantel.
- Paper Bag Monster Puppets. These comical paper puppets will have them laughing for days, a great choice for the youngest children in your family.
- Black Cat Cross-Stitch. Put little fingers to work with this simple cross-stitch pattern. It's mainly one color, so it's going to be easy for a kid to build with a little oversight.
- Leaf Ghosts. Send the children out to forage for fallen leaves, and then go indoors to make these adorable ghosts un-boo-livable. Paint the leaves with white paint. Once dry, draw on black eyes with a black permanent marker. You can string them together for a spooky garland, or scatter them along with the table, or use them as place cards.
- Mummy Pumpkins. Little ones can get a cackle out of covering the mini pumpkins with gauze strings, but let an adult work with the staple gun and hot glue. Cover a small white pumpkin with gauze strips, with hot-glue keeping the strips in place where appropriate. To build eyes, connect two differently shaped black buttons with hot-glue. Tack down a length of thin black twine with staple-gun staples to create a mouth.
What can adults do on Halloween?
Halloween it’s not just for the kids. Eventually, while we all outgrow our trick-or-treatment days, it doesn't mean that we have to totally put the holiday behind us. Here are just a few of my favorite options.
- Watch a scary movie. It's always the simplest solution to get your spooky fix and doesn't ask you to leave your sofa. Uh, win-win.
- Binge-watch a season of American Horror Story. Would you like something a little longer than a movie to keep you occupied for the whole Halloween? Turn on a season of the always-creepy American Horror Story for hours of spine shivers.
- Carve pumpkins. Pick up a pumpkin and break your carving knife if you want to do something that needs a little (just a little!) more physical activity than watching a movie. You’ll get into the Halloween spirit and get an arm workout.

How do you make Halloween fun at home?
- Go bobbing for apples. This is an autumn practice like that, but how many people do it, actually? Without trick-or-treating, now you can try it!
- Hit up a hayride. Oh, we get it: this Halloween you want to get out of your house. If hayrides are your thing, there’s no better night to do it — the window of opportunity is closing as winter approaches.
- Or hit up a haunted house. Another great choice for a Halloween adventure, since a haunted house will never fail to make you scream your head off, even if it is run by a bunch of teenagers.
- Go to a party on Halloween or host one of your own! If you're afraid of being frightened (we get it), skip the horror and celebrate Halloween with a party instead. If you don’t know anyone hosting one, step up to the plate yourself!
