In our house, crafting is undoubtedly the number one hobby of everyone living here, right down to the youngest kids. This makes doing a DIY project an awesome bonding activity, but we have to make sure that we have plenty ideas on hand that everyone, of all ages, will actually be capable of and interested in! Our older kids have plenty of things they’re good at and like to do, but we’re always keeping our eyes peeled for cute themed and seasonal crafts for our toddler aged children to make sure they get to be creative and learn that way along with everyone else too. Halloween is no exception!
Are you feeling just as interested as we were, if not more, in the idea of learning how to make a few new kinds of cute, Halloween themed toddler crafts? Check out these 5 fantastic ideas, designs, and tutorials that we came across in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. Toilet roll mummies
If you ask us, crafts made with empty toilet rolls are some of the very best ones because the things you need to put them together are affordable and accessible and the techniques are always easy! We’re sure it’ll come as no surprise, then, that we really loved this toilet roll mummy idea outlined step by step on Happy Hooligans. All you need besides the roll is some tissue, some string, some glue, and two googly eyes!
2. Spider web plates
Just like the toilet roll crafts we’ve just raved about, paper plates make for another classic in the kids’ crafting world! Our kids have been really obsessed with spiders lately after finding a huge one living in a very spooky looking web on the porch right as the seasons changed, so this adorable string web, felt spider, and paper plate snack from Annelily Designs was huge hit in our house.
3. Spooky egg carton bats
Are you actually feeling quite intrigued indeed by the idea of making crafts with your toddlers out of things that you can upcycle from your own recycling bin but you’d like to expand the idea outside of just toilet rolls? In that case, we’d suggest reading for the empty egg carton too! Crafts by Courtney guides you step by step through the process of making these funny little bats.
4. Fall leaf ghosts
Has the best part of fall for your kids so far been raking (and then jumping in) the leaves in the yard, but you know that the colder and wetter the weather gets, the less they’ll get to play with them? Then why not do a craft with some leaves that you collected instead, for those days when they can’t go outside? Check out how easy this adorable dried leaf painted ghosts featured on The Art 123 are to make!
5. Handprint spiders
When your little ones are crafting, are they definitely the kinds of budding artists who likes to gets as hands-on as possible and as messy as you’ll let them be? In that case, we have a feeling you’ll really love the way Housing a Forest outlines the process for making these awesome handprint spiders that will let your gets do just that! Cut them out and finish them off with some googly eyes, et voila!
