Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays. It wasn’t until I had children. 

Flashback to high school:

I was on my way to a Halloween party and I ran over a black cat! Needless to say, that night was sort of a bust. I went back but the cat wasn’t there.

But now I can honestly say It brings out the kid in me and we have so much fun preparing for it.  We love doing pumpkin crafts and fun Halloween crafts. Plus I get to go through their candy and stash the good stuff.

We are always looking for fun Halloween craft ideas. We don’t buy too much from the craft store – it’s easier just to order our supplies on Amazon for fun crafts.

The best way to enjoy perfect Halloween craft with children is to make spooky, creepy, scary, Halloween DIY crafts.  My boys like using googly eyes and pipe cleaners, and making the Trader Joes Halloween Haunted House Cookie Kit. This is great for kids of all ages, including older kids because it’s and edible Halloween craft!

These ones are easy crafts for children of all ages, including edible crafts. They are also creative ways to use their fine motor skills.
