Kids Halloween Crafts

Kids Halloween crafts will send you to the head of the class.  Do your homework and have no fear.  Make the most of the holiday's frights and delights with kid style planning.  Check with the teacher so you will know the schools rules and regulations for Halloween parties.  Get the teacher's approval before plans are finalized.  Then enlist the help of parents in the planning of Halloween party crafts, games, and spooky Halloween food choices.

Halloween luminaries.
With a little imagination, you can dress these jars up for Halloween, too.  They are simple enough for kids to make and festive enough to lighten up the party mood.

Decorate small pumpkins.
After the pumpkin hunt, let the children decorate their pumpkins.  Have markers, stickers, glitter, construction paper, scissors and glue available.  For older children, you might want to consider paint.

Body parts.
This spine tingling activity has been used at kids Halloween parties for years. Yucky!

Guess the internal organs.  Prepare bowls of eyeballs (peeled grapes), brains (cooked spaghetti noodles), blood (ketchup) and so on.  Blindfold students and place their hand in each bowl informing them of each internal organ.

Orange-o-lanterns.
Include a fun health snack into your kids Halloween crafts.  Apply unique pumpkin carving principles to oranges and make a fruit bowl.  Fill the orange bowl carving with mixed fruit to turn familiar fruit into a spook-ta-cu-lar snack.

Bag of fun.
We love this crafting idea using bags.  Think outside the bag using different sizes and fillers to fit any purpose.

Gaming Kids Halloween Crafts

Kids Halloween crafts require no magic.  The secret ingredients are props, patience, and planning.  The right games and activities will liven up your party and ensure a fun time for all.  Kids have no expectations, so here is your chance to create magical memories as hair raising or as good natured as you wish.


I want my mummy.
The most successful kids Halloween activities involve action.  Nothing could be more fun than a bunch of five year olds wrapping a classmate in toilet tissue. 

Divide the class into groups and give each group rolls of toilet tissue. Designate one student to be the mummy. At the signal, the groups begin to wrap toilet paper around the designated student. The first group to complete their mummy wins.

How many pumpkin seeds?
Place pumpkin seeds that have been counted in a clear jar.  Let children guess how many seeds are in the jar.  Award a prize for the one who guesses closet to the correct amount.

Pumpkin hunt.
Organize an egg hunt Halloween style.  Hide small pumpkins around the classroom and allow students to find them.  For an additional activity, decorate collection bags to add more fun to the pumpkin gathering.

Say cheese.
Fill the room with laughter using kids Halloween crafts that involve everyone.  A picture is worth a thousand words, so capture the moment with photos.  Photograph each student in their Halloween costume.  

If costumes are not allowed, take a picture of each student making a scary face.  Maybe have their hair standing on ends by rubbing a balloon on top of their hair.  These photos can be displayed on a bulletin board and later sent home for parents to enjoy.

One Stop Party Ideas Tip

Kids Halloween party ideas always include the classroom favorite, cupcakes.  Turn this food treat into an activity by allowing the children to decorate their own.  Provide sprinkles, gummy candy, miniature pumpkin candy or gel icing.
