Halloween art activities for kids
Kids will have a blast with these spooktastic Halloween arts and crafts projects

Anyone who has kids in their lives, or who once was a kid themselves (so, everyone), knows how much they love Halloween.

Costumes? They spend months planning them (and then sometimes change their minds at the last minute, but that is a topic for a different discussion).

The jack-o’-lantern carving? When else can you get a kid to willingly degoop a pumpkin?

And the trick-or-treating. Undoubtedly a highlight of the year. Running around the neighborhood with friends, filling their bags with candy. It is always a blast.

But the Halloween fun doesn’t have to end there! For kids who want to spend the time leading up to Halloween flexing their creative muslces, these fun and easy art projects fit the bill.

The best part? When they are done, kids have a finished product that they can hang on their own wall, share with friends and family, or use to help decorate the house in the most spooktacular way!

Each of these art experiences take just a few minutes to set up, and they clean up just as fast! You can also use whatever crayons, markers, and paints you have around the house if you don’t have a cupixel art set.

And if you find yourself wanting to create alongside your kids, pull up a chair, because these creative activities are good for big kids, too!

Send a jack-o’-lantern

Carving pumpkins is a great Halloween activity, but it takes time (and makes a mess!). With this experience, kids can choose between a happy, spooky, or laughing jack-o’-lantern, and then draw to their heart’s content. These are great either to display at home or to gift to their friends as special Halloween cards.
