While the pumpkin battle rages here, what specter-tacular crafts are you doing at home? We have some great Halloween craft ideas for kids big and small — from creating your own Monster Slime to treat holders and more!


What’s better than ghosts and goblins? DIY Monster Slime! This chemical mixture of corn starch and gel splats, sticks, oozes and flops for all sorts of gross and goopey Halloween fun.


Whip up cute and easy treat holders that are almost as fun as the delicious goodies they hold inside with a toilet paper tube, an old paper bag, paint and a little ingenuity with this Halloween Bat Treat Holder Craft.


For your trick-or-treating escapades, you know that loot bags and sugar sweets will be in high demand, but don’t forget that your darling little monsters may be walking around for hours! Stay hydrated in style with these Halloween H2O Coozies.


And, of course, you can never go wrong with a classic paper plate craft! Kids can make these wicked cute Halloween Witch Hats and personalize them their own creative touches.
