13 Kids Halloween Party Craft Ideas that are Spookalicious

Are you looking for some fun Halloween Craft Ideas for the kids?  If so I have gathered up 13 of my very favorite Halloween Craft Ideas that I think are just Spookalicious !! These craft ideas are Simple, Easy and would be a great addition to your Halloween Party for the kids.

The photo you see to the left are Bat O Lanterns that were crafted up by my friend Kim. She found this idea in the Family Fun Magazine and recreated them herself. I absolutely loves these Bats and they came out great. I think they are a great craft to have the kids do as well.

Here is What you will Need to Create These Bat O Lanterns:

  • Mini Pumpkins or Plastic ones that will last year to year
  • Black Paint – Acrylic works well
  • Black and White Craft Foam
  • Paint Brushes
  • Glue Dots
  • Black Duct Tape
  • Toothpicks
  • Wood Skewers
  • Black Marker

Start by having the kids paint the Pumpkins Black or you can paint them ahead of time so you do not have to wait for them to dry. Then Cut out your Bat Wings, Ears and Eyes. Family Fun offers Free Templates for all of these Here.  Attach the Wood Skewers to the back of the Bat Wings with the Black Duct Tape and then stick them into the Pumpkin. Do the same with the Ears using the Toothpicks. Then using the Glue Dots stick on your Eyes and add Black Dots. Kim said she used the Duct Tape vs the Glue Dots because it held them on better – so if you have trouble with the Glue Dots go this route.

Now How Easy is that? Kids will love making these and they add some SpooKy Fun to your Halloween Decorations !!

I would like to give a Thank You Shout Out to Kim for letting me share her Bat O Lantern Photo – Great Job Kim !!!
