25 Not-so-scary Halloween Crafts for Kids
I L.O.V.E. Halloween!
It has been a favorite since I was little. Dressing up and decorating is so much fun! For some little ones Halloween is a scary time. My son, who is 6, seems to be scared every other year and even refuses to go inside the Halloween stores.
Halloween doesn’t have to be scary! There are tons of not-so-scary crafts and decorations that you can make with kids.
Who can resist an adorable black cat or a cheerful-looking ghost or monster?! Pumpkins also make a great Halloween craft that isn’t scary. You can see our silly create-a-face pumpkins here or our painted pumpkins from last year here.

Carrot Fingers. Buy some fresh carrots. Cut them into finger sizes. put peanut butter on the nail bed, and use the peanut butter to glue red apple peel cut into a fingernail. Eat that! This is a healthy snack for kids, and they love the gore!
