75 Halloween Crafts for Kids Sorted by Age

By: Jaclyn Holtzman, Editor,
Halloween Crafts for Kids

The spooky evening of October 31st is a holiday anticipated by many. Young and old, male and female, artsy and crafty, the night of witches, goblins, and ghouls holds something for everyone. Whether it's the sweet treats, haunting decorations, eerie aura, or the clever costumes, Halloween is one of the most exciting nights of the year. Since it's a holiday for all ages, we think that people from one to one hundred should get to prepare for the frightening fun too. It's not just up to Mom to make DIY costumes, decorate the house, and set out a bowl of candy. The whole family can participate this year with this awesome collection of 75 Halloween Crafts for Kids Sorted by Age.

What's really cool about this list is that, while it's separated by age, your little ones can always make a craft outside of their age group. Maybe they're really good at crafting, or perhaps they're looking for a little breather. No matter their mood, there's an easy kids craft for them. They won't find any of these haunting crafts too "babyish," so feel free to have your kids make Halloween crafts that are in younger categories. All of the crafts on this list are easy enough to be completed by kids on their own, which gives parents a nice break. If you have a group of kids of varying ages, you can't go wrong choosing any of the Halloween crafts in the list since they all have awesome results.

Halloween crafts for kids are great ways to get into the spooky spirit, so browse this list to find the perfect project for your kids' eerie evening! PLUS: if your kids are looking for a fun, last-minute homemade costume idea, check out the DIY donut costume below!

Taking their tiny hands and some craft supplies, your kids can create Halloween crafts that will spook and impress. They may be tiny, but their scaring ability is mighty.
