15 Fun Halloween Crafts for Kids to make at Home

October will be here before you know it, and with that comes Halloween! I have been working on gathering some fun Halloween ideas for awhile to share with you all. Here are some super fun crafts for kids to make this Halloween season to celebrate!

I am a sucker for anything handmade from my kids. I love all the fun ways you can use Popsicle sticks or even rocks to create fun Halloween crafts to decorate your home and get into the spirit. Doing crafts is a great way to spend time with your kids.  Halloween is such a big holiday, why not create fun crafts that are all about jack o lanterns, spiders, monster, vampires, bats and more.
