Whether you're crafting costumes, carving pumpkins, or creating spooky decor, Halloween is the ultimate time to get in touch with your DIY side. Crafting with little ones, however... that can be an adventure for only the bravest of parents. Luckily, there are plenty of Halloween crafts you can do with your children that don't involve sharp carving knives, permanently-staining paints, and glitter (shudder). In fact, these 10 mess-free Halloween crafts for kids are perfect to get your family (and your home) into the spooky holiday spirit, and your house won't require a deep clean afterwards.
There's a craft on this list for everyone, whether your child is already a crafty Martha Stewart in the making or they still require adult supervision and help every step of the way. And, of course, there's always potential for mess if you aren't involved for the entire process. Make crafting time a family affair! Put on a scary movie, spoil everyone with some Halloween candy (just try to save a little for the trick-or-treaters), and get to work! These crafts will make perfect additions to your household Halloween decor. Pro-tip: When you're done crafting, put the date on everything. Each year, when you pull these relics out of storage, you can reminisce about crafting with your babies who won't be babies anymore!
