We tried some super easy Halloween crafts – they are perfect for toddlers as they are all quick to do and look really effective!

1. Footprint Ghosts
I painted F’s foot with white paint and made prints onto black cardstock.
Then I added details – so easy!
2. Paper Plate Pumpkin
This would be a great activity for a party or crafty playdate. I found some orange paper plates and cut some face parts from black craft foam. I made one pumpkin face in advance to give F the idea of what we were doing.
He hasn’t used a glue stick much so this was great practice for him. Can you guess which one was his plate?
3. Bat Handprints
I drew around F’s hand with fingers together. I used this as a template and copied it onto black cardstock.
Then I cut out a bat head and body from more black cardstock, then added teeth and googly eyes. These would look great in a window and would be a cute classroom project!
4. Spooky Wood
Back in May we made a Stick Family from sticks that F had collected. Well, he still presents sticks to me at the park so we made this spooky wood craft from a small percentage of them! For once I let him add the glue himself to some black cardstock – and things got a little messy (hence the lack of photos!)
We glued on all the sticks and then added pairs of googly eyes.
5. Bead and Pipe Cleaner Pumpkin
This is a super cute idea from Blissfully Domestic. I gave F a bowl of orange pony beads and a green pipe cleaner.
He carefully threaded as many beads as he could, rejecting the sparkly beads after a while for some reason! Then I twisted the ends of the pipe cleaner together to make the pumpkin’s stalk. Wonderful fine motor skills practice!
6. Spider Craft
Note: I have updated this spider craft and it has moved location – check out the new Spider Craft for Toddlers – complete with video tutorial!
