It’s just about time to start planning the Halloween crafts we will be doing for this year’s Halloween party!
Obviously, the kids will be eager to eat piles of candy, but I’ve also found some great activities just perfect for a Halloween party or even a monster theme boy’s birthday party.
Plenty of these activities could also be made beforehand and hung up as party decorations. The Cupcake Liner Bats and Pumpkin Rocks would be perfect over the fireplace, while the Yogurt Monster Cups fit in on the dessert table amongst the cake and other sweet treats.
There are plenty of party activities too, including the Candy Corn Monster Craft for Halloween, the Paper Plate Spiders, WitchCraft, and Spider Activities.
The Edible Pumpkin Play Dough, DIY Halloween Surprise Balls, or Franken-SLIME Halloween Favors are just what all the kids will be thrilled to take home after the party has ended.

1. Candy Corn Monster Craft for Halloween
From Crafty Morning
We don’t make many scary Halloween crafts so I thought it was necessary to feature this awesome candy corn monster. Even though kids may think they are scary, we all know that they are secretly super cute.
The candy corn is meant to be the monster’s teeth for the craft, paired with a funny monster body and giant monster eye balls.
2. Paper Plate Spiders
Be prepared for a whole swarm of these paper plate spiders to take over your house in the next couple of days. Luckily they are so cute that you won’t even mind having them around.
