Tips for creating Halloween crafts for small children

  • Remember that it doesn’t have to be scary. Some kids are easily scared. Adding a smile to a ghost can make a huge difference when you crafting with preschoolers.
  • Break out the black construction paper. I know that for us, black is usually one of the last colors left in a pack. This is the perfect time to use it up.
  • Several of these crafts can be used with older kids too!
