Halloween Activities, Crafts & Snacks For Kids

Halloween Crafts and Activities

As the weather cools, the leaves change colour and pumpkin patches open up, families everywhere are looking to get into the spirit of the season. Whatever you end up doing this Halloween, you can still enjoy plenty of build-up to the day with activities, crafts and snacks.

Here are a few fun and spooky things to do as a family this month.

Melted Crayon Pumpkin Craft

This project can be a bit messy (so you might want to take it outside), but the end results are stunning. Get crafty and creative with a white pumpkin and some old crayons. Here’s how.

Pumpkin Patch Stomp Game

We have yet to meet a kid who doesn’t like free prizes hidden inside a balloon. This easy game brings the fun of pinatas together with the enjoyment of popping balloons. Can you get any better? Here’s how to put it together.

Tin Can Pumpkin Project

Recycled tin cans can go a long way to adding some great seasonal décor to your home. Here’s a simple way to make you feel festive this Halloween. Get the instructions here.

Spider Web Pretzel Treat

Get festive by creating spider webs using pretzels and melted white chocolate. Your children can help you with this food craft and then enjoy their creations. (As long as they save one for you, of course!) Here’s how to make them.

Glass Jar Jack O Lanterns and Ghosts

For a simple craft, this one looks great and is easy for kids to do. Grab some tissue paper and glue and bring it all together with a battery-operated tea light. Get the complete instructions here.

Reese’s Bat Treats

Fun, cute and really easy to create. Oh, and did we mention delicious? We love this little treat. Here’s how to make it.

Halloween Candy Bark

Perfect for at-home Halloween parties or for wrapping in clear individual cellophane bags for kids to enjoy. Or, you know, for snacking on yourself, because why not? Get the recipe here.
