Get ready for spooky season with these fun Halloween arts and crafts for kids that you can try your hand at too. We have all the Halloween essential themes covered, including bats, witches, ghosts and pumpkins. Get stuck in!
Bats are nocturnal, meaning that they sleep during the day and are awake at night. Bats have a creepy reputation, especially Vampire bats that like to drink blood, so they make the perfect theme for a Halloween craft activity.
Make these cute and easy Spoon Bats and get in the mood for Halloween. All you need is some black painted spoons and a few other simple supplies to make the eyes, ears and wings. Once finished, you can stick the bats to your wall with blu-tack or glue them to a piece of string to create your very own bat garland. Don’t forget to hang them upside-down, just like real bats.
Making slime is a great Halloween arts and crafts activity for kids. Plus, it’s educational too. Slime is chemistry! Use this Halloween arts and crafts activity as an opportunity to teach kids about Non-Newtonian fluids.
Non-Newtonian fluids change their behaviour under stress (say, if you hit them or shake them). Sometimes they act like a solid, and at other times they are runny. Learning about these strange substances can be confusing for kids and adults alike. However, this is a fun Halloween-themed STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activity all the family will enjoy.
This two-part Halloween activity is another fun science-inspired one to do with kids. It starts with a simple dough recipe that kids will enjoy playing with. Then, it finishes with an impressive chemical reaction and bubbly fizzy ghosts.
This Fizzing Ghosts activity uses a simple acid-base chemical reaction created with baking soda and vinegar. It’s a non-toxic chemical reaction so, it’s safe to do with kids, but be careful as the vinegar could sting a little if the child has any cuts on their hands.
Take out the stress of Halloween with this essay Halloween arts and crafts activity for kids. With just a few simple elements, you can create a spooky Halloween themed stress ball. It’s a quick project that kids will enjoy taking part in. They also get to play with the pumpkin stress ball afterwards too for extra enjoyment. Try making a few and giving them out as favours at a Halloween party.

When we think of Halloween, Pumpkins always spring to mind. No Halloween-themed house would be complete without a pumpkin on the doorstep, mantle or windowsill. However, Pumpkin carving can be dangerous. It’s a fun Halloween activity for adults, but for kids, try these easy no-carve pumpkin decorating ideas instead.
No-carve pumpkins are safer (no sharp knives needed). Plus, there’s no slimy pumpkin mess to clean up afterwards so, the adults will love these pumpkin decorating ideas too.
Creating Halloween decorations couldn’t get much easier than this. Kids can make this silly googly eyes pumpkin in minutes. Just stick on the googly eyes and it’s done. Please be careful with the googly eyes around younger children as they can be a choking hazard.
Decorating pumpkins with markers is a great option for kids of all ages. Younger kids can doodle on their pumpkin, while older kids can spend a bit longer on their design. Try decorating the pumpkins with a classic scary face design, or go for a more contemporary look with sugar skulls and repetitive patterns like polka dots and stripes.
Bunting is an essential decoration for any home at Halloween. It’s easy to make your own. You can download and print your own from Views From A Step Stool. Color in yur bunting with Halloween colors - Orange, Black and Purple.
Or, go for a natural style bunting with this tutorial from Activity Village. Kids will enjoy collecting leaves, and punching the holes in the leaves to create their own bunting from scratch.
Here’s another super easy Halloween decoration activity. All you need is some tissue paper, a cotton ball (or piece of crumpled up paper), some string and a marker. Make a batch of them and hang from the ceiling at different heights to create a spooky haunted house.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try and make an extra-large one with an old sheet or white garbage bag. Ideal for hanging in your hallway to scare your guests.
This is another easy halloween decoration idea for kids. This time, using a mason jar. Simply bend a glowstick (to make it glow), insert it in the jar, and fill the rest of the jar up with cotton balls, webbing and plastic spiders. It’s perfect to decorate a dark corner. You can also make a few and use them to light up a pathway. You’ll need to replace the glow stick when they start to fade, so, keep some extra glow sticks ready.
