DIY Kid Friendly Halloween Crafts


Join me in celebrating Halloween with these creative and festive DIY Halloween crafts that I rounded up from some crafty blogs!

Great for preschoolers: Salt Ghost

This craft is excellent for younger kids and requires minimal supplies (you probably have everything you need very close by).

You’ll need a black sheet of construction paper, regular glue, and salt. Using the glue, create and fill in the shape of a ghost. Make sure to outline eyes and a mouth too! Grab the salt and sprinkle it over the glue. Shake off the extra salt and then let it dry. In just a few minutes you’ll have a super cute ghost to display!

Great for school aged children: Candy Corn Banner

For this craft you’ll need paper plates, yellow paint, orange paint, paint brushes, scissors, tape, and ribbon or twine.

Using the orange color first, paint a two-inch circle staying close to the edge. Let it dry. Then take the yellow and paint inside the orange circle. Let that dry. Leave the center white.

Using the scissors cut the plate in half and then cut those halves in half. You should have eight pieces of candy corn! To adhere the candy corn to ribbon, use tape on the back. Continue until all pieces are gone and then find a fun spot for your new banner! For the full instructions, visit The Pin Junkie.


Great for any age: Ghost Marshmallows

Perhaps as you’re making all of these crafts or when you’ve finished, this one can be enjoyed to celebrate all of your fun. For this, you will need marshmallows, a black food color marker, and hot cocoa.

Using the marker, hand draw little black eyes and a mouth of a ghost. Be creative and think of other fun Halloween symbols you can draw – maybe draw spider webs or a witch’s hat! Once you’re done decorating the marshmallows, simply add them to your hot cocoa. For more detailed instructions visit Family Fresh Meals.


And, in  case you didn’t know, we’ve released our seasonal Halloween Truffle Collection! This nine-piece set features three fall favorite flavors – caramel, candy corn, and peanut butter. And be on the lookout soon for us to release our winter specials too.
