Fun Halloween Crafts to Make with Your Kids

It’s time to decorate Allen TX homes for Halloween. Why not make it doubly fun by using craft projects you make with the kids?

Here are some fun suggestions for family-friendly crafts you can make to decorate your new Landon home:

  1. Pumpkins are the mainstay of Halloween decorating. But carving them isn’t exactly a kid-friendly activity. Use paint instead. Wash and dry the pumpkin first. Paint will adhere better to a clean, dry surface. Now let your imagination run wild! Paint on Jack o’ lantern or cartoon faces, splatter or drizzle paint on your pumpkin or cover it with polka dots.
  2. Encourage the kids to jazz up plain or painted pumpkins with glitter glue, paper or fabric decoupage, pompoms or googly eyes.
  3. Get some black construction paper and cut out silhouettes of cats, bats, spiders or ravens to put in your windows. These work best against a background of light-colored blinds or curtains.
  4. Make cardboard box haunted houses. Shoeboxes work great for this. Use paint, modeling clay, construction paper, markers and small toys to create a spooky scene.
  5. If you’re feeling ambitious and like to bake, try building a gingerbread haunted house. If you use all edible materials, the house can be a family treat when Halloween is over!
