Preschool Halloween Crafts

To make these Halloween craft ideas even more user friendly for you, we’ve included a list of materials you’ll need for each one. I bet you can make quite a few at home right now!

If you have kids, I highly recommend creating a craft bin for them. I’ve found that using clear bins like these are best. That way all of your supplies stay organized and not all over the house!

    Just a note: Spiders have 8 legs…and while its a preschool craft, really there should be no confusion that they have 10 legs….Sorry – a science stickler!!
    Other ideas are super cute! I especially loved tearing the cotton apart for the ghosts! 🙂

      I had the same idea, but I still like it and when I think of all my Little ones handprint crafts, it is so often that one finger doesn’t show up well- you could do the craft just keep one finger clean!
