Looking for not-so-scary easy Halloween crafts for kids? Have little ones who want to make Halloween crafts, but not ready for the creepy stuff? I hear you!
I've never been into the ghoulish, frightening side of Halloween, but we still like to have fun with the holiday, serving up Halloween appetizers for dinner for a festive celebration.
Halloween is such a fun celebration. My kids would look forward to it for weeks when they were little, and now my oldest wants to decorate and hand out candy to the kids who come trick or treating through our neighborhood.
Your little ones can participate in the friendlier side of Halloween with these 13 Not-So-Scary easy Halloween Kids Crafts.
In addition to being cute crafts and decorations for your home, they'd make fun projects for Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, great personalized gifts for grandparents, or fun activities for a Harvest party. And while we're on the subject of harvest, these adorable Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes would make a fun project, too.
We lived in Maryland for most of our lives and had almost seven acres of land including a pasture. My husband used to cut a trail out of the tall grasses and set up candy and snack stops for the kids. They would play in the pasture for hours!
Most areas have a lot of events around Halloween or Harvest time. Look in your local paper or Google 'Halloween events for young children' and I bet you'll find a lot of fun events that aren't so scary.
Many churches even have 'trunk or treat' where kids who don't live in a neighborhood can trick or treat.
Another fun way to celebrate in a not-so-scary way is to gather the kids for a Halloween movie. These are a few of our favorites!
