Every age can get into the Halloween spirit with these cute craft ideas!

Trick-or-treat Sign
1. Trick-or-treat Sign

Perfect for when your child isn’t old enough to "make" a craft yet (or just isn’t interested) is an adorable Halloween sign. You can use a sheet of paper or make it longer-lasting and use felt or a pre-painted canvas so it can be hung year after year.

Cotton Ball Ghost
2. Cotton Ball Ghost

Little budding artists love to glue! And cotton balls and paper make for easy, quick cleanup. Either you or the child can design the ghost's body and then let them go crazy with cotton balls. Googly eyes or cut out circles can finish it off. If you are really feeling creative, add a spritz of glow-in-the dark or glitter spray paint

Weaver Spider Art
3. Weaver Spider Art

This adorable spider from www.momendeavors.com combines handprints and small motor skill activities! Simply poke holes in a plate, paint or color the background, and then use two hands to make a spider. Finally have your child lace yarn or string through the holes in whatever pattern they wish to make their own spider web!

Creepy Pens
4. Creepy Pens

Creepy Halloween pens make fur fun decorations and are useful! All you need is modeling clay that hardens and a pen! Kids can decorate then however they want to make a creepy monster or ghost finger.

Rainbow Loom Charms
5. Rainbow Loom Charms

Every family with a child over the age of 7 has a rainbow loom and multitude of rubber bands collecting dust somewhere. Break that baby out and have your older kids make Halloween charms to send to their birth family. These are especially great for sending to siblings! Tons of tutorials for making these can be found on YouTube.You can even make them 3D!

Karen White

Karen White is the self-proclaimed leading authority on being "that mom." You know the one. The PTO Vice President, room mom, baseball team mom, AND leader of well-behaved kids (OK, the well-behaved part may be stretching it . . . like really stretching . . .) When she isn’t threatening to tackle one of her boys on the ball field if they don’t run faster, or convincing her 4-year-old daughter that everything doesn’t HAVE to sparkle, she is also a wife and stay-at-home mom of three. One of the three happens to have been adopted, but good luck figuring out which one it is, since they all have pasty white skin, blond hair, and blue eyes.
