5 Halloween Craft Projects for Kids

Treat Bag

While you could buy a Halloween treat bucket or raid the linen closet for a pillowcase, this year try a craft project with your kids: make your own Halloween trick-or-treat bags.

Materials:

  • Recyclable grocery bag, or paper or cloth bag with handles
  • Scissors
  • Markers or craft paint
  • Glue
  • Kids' imaginations (crucial!)

Optional:

  • Stickers or stamps
  • Felt or cardstock paper
  • Little plastic spiders
  • Any fun decoration found at the local craft or discount store

Instructions:

Let kids come up with their Halloween patterns and ideas, from crazy monster bags to spooky gravestone sacks.

Alternative:

Beach pails, ready-to-decorate paint cans from the craft store and cleaned-out popcorn or ice cream tubs can easily be made into treat-carrying cauldrons.
